Tatiana Stefanidou in January 2007
April 18, 1970 |
Tatiana Stefanidou is married to anchorman Nikos Evangelatos and they have two children: Nicolas (1999) and Lydia (2004). They met in the radio-marathon of UNICEF (1998) when she was in dissociation with her husband (Panagiotis Stavropoulos). Since then Tatiana and Nikos are together.
Stefanidou began her career as a journalist, working for Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation. Later, she co-hosted ANT1's morning show Kalimera Ellada with Yorgos Papadakis and was a newscaster on the same TV station for a period. She has worked for Alpha TV, Tempo TV, Alter Channel and ANT1, presenting tabloid talk shows, like Alter's Yialinos Tihos (2001), Fyllo ke Ftero (2002) and Me to Ganti (2003), and ANT1's Apoklistika (2004) and Apokalypsi Tora (2005). All these shows, have had mediocre ratings due to their overly scandalous topics. Perhaps the most notorious topic was digging the garbage of celebrities and then commenting on the cost of the products which were found in it.
She has also hosted ANT1's Fame Story and Big Brother reality shows and has, twice, been the presenter of ANT1's Star Hellas beauty pageants in 2005 and 2006, something which provoked doubts as to whether she is a journalist or TV host.
- Stefanidou is the daughter of the retired basketballer Mimis Stefanidis, former of Panellinios BC, Olimpia (Stefanel) Milan and the Greek national basketball team during the 1950s.
- For many years ballet has been claimed to be her main interest.
