LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The city of Las Vegas will honor Robin Leach with a street dedication.

A portion of Clark Avenue that runs past the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health will be renamed to Robin Leach Lane to honor the life and legacy of the veteran journalist and television personality.

Leach was a longtime supporter of Keep Memory Alive, the fundraising entity for the center.

"Robin was truly one-of-a-kind and we are forever grateful for his support of Keep Memory Alive and the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health," said Mr. Ruvo. "It is an honor to dedicate a piece of Las Vegas' burgeoning downtown to Robin and his continuing legacy within the community and beyond."

The dedication ceremony will take place on March 15 at 4 p.m.
