Athens News

The Athens News is an English-language newspaper published in Greece.

It was founded by Yannis Horn, brother of Dimitris Horn, and first appeared on 29 January 1952.

In 1993, the Athens News was redesigned and revamped when it was acquired by the Lambrakis Foundation, a non-profit research centre specialising in education. As such, it formed part of the Lambrakis Press Group.

It was the first Greek newspaper to be published on the internet - an online edition appeared in 1995,

In 2001, after 49 years as a daily, the Athens News became a weekly, appearing on Fridays.

In October 2008, the paper was acquired by Myenpi Publishing.

The Athens News has regular sections covering aspects of Greek news - politics, social issues, business, arts & entertainment and sports - as well as international news. Features include analysis of domestic and foreign affairs by leading academics and experts, humour columns and reader contributions.

The Athens News has been described as providing "a refreshing view through the eyes of a smitten outsider accidentally but deeply entangled."

As of late November 2012, Athens News seems to have ceased operating, both the print edition and the website.

Famous quotes containing the words news and/or athens:

    Word of gloom from the war, one day;
    Johnston pressed at the front, they say.
    Little Giffen was up and away;
    A tear—his first—as he bade good-by,
    Dimmed the glint of his steel-blue eye.
    “I’ll write, if spared!” There was news of the fight;
    But none of Giffen.—He did not write.
    Francis Orrery Ticknor (1822–1874)

    Before the time I did Lysander see,
    Seemed Athens as a paradise to me.
    O then, what graces in my love do dwell,
    That he hath turned a heaven unto a hell?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
