Ta Nea

Daily newspaper


Originally established in 1931 under the title Athinaika Nea, this paper was renamed to Ta Nea in 1945. During the dictatorship (1967-1974) Ta Nea opposed the regime. For a long time it was Greece's most widely read newspaper. In the 1990s it strongly supported the Greek socialist party, Pasok. Ta Nea and the newspaper to Vima belonged to the media group "Dimosiografikos Organismos Lampraki" (DOL) which was founded in 1922. In December 2016, for the first time ever since 1922, none of the group's newspapers were published because the editors had not been paid for months and went on strike in protest. In May 2017, the heavily indebted DOL group was sold for 22.89 million euros to 'Alter Ego', a group belonging to the shipowner and owner of Olympiakos Piraeus and Nottingham Forest, Evangelos Marinakis.
