Prominent media owner and philanthropist dies
The publisher of To Vima and Ta Nea newspapers and head of Greece’s largest media group Lambrakis Press (DOL) has died at the age of 75.
The publisher of To Vima and Ta Nea newspapers and head of Greece’s largest media group Lambrakis Press (DOL), Christos Lambrakis, died yesterday at the age of 75.
Lambrakis inherited the media group from his father in 1957. He went on to expand DOL to include more than 20 newspaper and magazine titles. It also owns 22 percent of Teletypos, which runs Mega TV channel.
“Christos Lambrakis was a very important member of the country’s public life… who made a great contribution to the arts and to education,” said Prime Minister George Papandreou of Lambrakis, who led the collection of private donors in 1991 who created the Athens Concert Hall.
“His loss leaves a huge gap and marks the end of an era,” said Papandreou.
Lambrakis died of multiple organ failure.
His funeral is due to take place tomorrow at Athens’s First Cemetery.
