Greek media magnate dies of heart failure, aged 75

Media magnate Christos Lambrakis, publisher of two leading Greek political newspapers and dozens of magazines, died of heart failure at the age of 75 at an Athens hospital on Monday, his media group said.

Lambrakis Press (DOL) publishes four newspapers, including To Vima and Ta Nea, 24 magazines and runs the website www.in.gr. It also owns 22 percent of Teletypos which runs the Mega TV channel.

"The Lambrakis media group in untold grief announces the death of Christos Labrakis, president of its board of directors," To Vima said on its website.

Lambrakis started his career as a journalist at one of his father's newspapers, To Vima. In his early 20s he inherited the family business.
