Robin Leach, the gossip columnist for the Las Vegas Sun who liked to toast to champagne wishes and caviar dreams, bids adieu to the paper to join the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The move means the 74-year-old Leach, who joins long-time gossip columnist Norm Clarke and nightlife reporter Doug Elfman, helps developed the newspaper’s niche division, the RJ reports.

The former Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous host brings his entertainment editor and writer Don Chareunsy with him, effectively disabling the Sun’s gossip coverage.

The RJ plans to "boost print and online readership and develop new platforms, including a possible TV station, a new daily website and a citywide shopping guide," according to the RJ.

Look for Leach in "advertising-sponsored content in the Friday Neon entertainment section and Sunday Life section" as well as the monthly magazine Luxury Las Vegas and Best of Las Vegas, the annual special section based on a reader’s poll.
