To Proto Thema (Greek: Πρώτο Θέμα, pronounced [ˌproto ˈθema] English: The Lead Story) is a Greek newspaper, published every Sunday. It was launched in 2005 by Makis Triantafyllopoulos, Themos Anastasiadis, and Tassos Karamitsos. An editorial team runs the newspaper, and all three of its founders are journalists; Triantafyllopoulos and Anastasiadis also host television talk shows.
Proto Thema has repeatedly achieved sales of over 200,000 issues in the relatively small Greek newspaper market. As of 2006, it frequently led the chart of top-selling Sunday newspapers, ahead of To Vima and Eleftherotypia.
Triantafyllopoulos left the newspaper after a disagreement with his partners related to Zachopoulos (minister in Kostas Karamanlis government) sex scandal.
