Orlov was a dedicated local political reporter for almost three decades who became known as the dean of the City Hall press corps. He died suddenly on February 2, 2015. “Rick dedicated his entire life to keeping the public informed,” said L.A. City Council President Herb Wesson. “He was a terrific journalist, friend and mentor and today we honor the man who gave so much to our city.” In homage to the beloved reporter a plaque was commissioned and will hang in the Media Center located adjacent to the John Ferraro Council Chamber at Los Angeles City Hall.
