RIP Robin Leach


When Food Network launched on November 22,1993, a familiar face appeared on that very first show… that of Robin Leach.   In 2012, Food Nation Radio spoke with Mr. Leach about a new concept he was involved with  that integrated everyday people cooking alongside celebrities… in a reality TV format based in Las Vegas.   We received the sad news that Mr. Leach passed away this week at age 76.

Thank you for all the celebrity interviews over the years, and now we wish you “champagne wishes and caviar dreams,” Mr. Leach.
