Ms Kapalos was not happy about this of course, but "κάθε εμπόδιο για καλό" - every obstacle is an opportunity: Helen Kapalos has now signed a contract with the most popular TV channel in Australia, Seven Network (Channel 7), as a presenter of the "current affairs" program Today Tonight, a program with very high viewing figures. Congratulations Helen!
Her Greek origin and close relationship with the Greek Diaspora of Australia was considered like an extra plus (About 400.000 Greeks are living in the country) by Channel 7 who also said they are very proud of their new cooperation with one of the best journalists and TV presenters of Australia - αυτό θα έλειπε!!!
In the Olympic games in Athens 2004 Kapalos had an important role in the coverage from the capital of Greece.
Helen Kapalos is divorced since some years and doesn't have any children yet. She writes about this in her blog: "Single, childless and not getting any younger. Take a chill pill."
Best wishes for a great year to Helen, and everybody else!
