Greek TV show hosts sue ex-colleague

Radio Arvyla TV show

Three days after the dismissal of a satire TV show co-host over a case of “revenge porn,” his three former colleagues have filed a lawsuit against him.

The three seek “redress for moral and material damages” suffered by themselves and the show from the actions of Stathis Panagiotopoulos. They had co-hosted the popular TV show “Radio Arvyla” for 14 years.

Panagiotopoulos has been accused by his former girlfriend of posting nude photos and videos of hers at a porn site without her consent. A trial has been set for early next year.

His co-hosts have been caught up in a social media blowback without, so far, any facts backing up accusations of their and abetting Panagiotopoulos’ behaviour.
