One of successful Greek journalists, Angeliki Nikolouli, who hails from Pyrgos in Illia, has been reporting and writing investigative articles, for magazines, televisions shows, and newspapers in both Patras and Athens, for thirty years of her career. In her early years, Angeliki worked as a crime reporter, which was not the easiest field to go into in those days. She soon became well–established as a crime reporter, the first women to do so in Greece. Even as a student, she displayed promising writing skills, with many of her poems being published in Greek newspapers. During her career in Patras, she dealt with many "social issues" and "crime reporting," and worked for both 'Gnomi" and "Peleponissos' newspapers. In Athens, she worked for the newspaper, 'Apogevmatini,' where she spent much of her time traveling to do reporting journalism.
Her focus on combative journalism has led to recognition for her work and recently, she has had the privilege of being appointed as the Ambassador of Goodwill by the State of Tennessee. The Governor of Tennessee, Bill Haslam, spoke during the presentation, during which she was awarded this honor by Father Theodore Kyritsis, a Greek Orthodox Priest. The award represented as a golden seal was granted to her on her television show, "Light in the Tunnel," which airs in Greece.
Angeliki's journalism has had quite an impact on her Greek society, and this is how the State of Tennessee learned of her work. She is the presenter and editor-in-chief of the show, which has been televised for twenty years, and even features in the Guinness Book of World Records. The show deals with missing persons' cases, which involves an extensive amount of investigative journalism, as she looks into the lives of mostly children and the elderly who are featured in her stories. Most of the people whom she investigates went missing mysteriously, and her show has been of great value to the investigation of these cases, including over twenty murders.
