Former Times reporter Ken Reich dies

June 30, 2008 | 12:00 pm

Reich worked at the paper for more than three decades and served as The Times' main reporter covering the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. Reich died in his sleep last night, according to close friend Anton Calleia.

While he retired in 2004, Reich remained very much interested in the goings-ons at the paper and maintained a blog, Take Back The Times,  that was highly critical of  Times' management and ongoing changes.

Times staff is working on a full obituary.
