Lars-Jacob Krogh (26 September 1938 – 14 April 2010) was a Norwegian anchorman and television presenter. Krogh started working for the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation in 1965, where he covered, among other things, the European Community membership referendum in 1972. In 2008 he received The King's Medal of Merit in gold.[1]

Krogh died from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.[2] It has been speculated that he may have contracted the disease as a result of a tick bite. Krogh was diagnosed with Lyme disease in the fall of 2009. He was immediately hospitalized at the Borreliose Centrum in Augsburg, Germany, and remained there for four weeks. However, he was by then already so weak from his illness that the physicians were unable to administer the recommended dosages of antibiotics. He received some palliative herbal remedies before he was discharged into the care of his family.[3]

He attended the College of Europe 1964-1965 (Robert Schuman promotion).[4]
