Johnny Kalimeris: Greece unlikely to participate
ATHENS, GREECE – The man behind the golden Eurovision period of Greece when Sakis Rouvas kicked off the rising period of the country in Eurovision, back in 2004, talked to ALPHA TV today expressing his concerns about Eurovision 2015 and the Greek participation.
Mr Johnny Kalimeris although no longer involved in ERT / NERIT the past few years, has very close ties with the national broadcaster and the Eurovision team in NERIT. When he says something, he is fully aware of what and when he says it.
Today during the morning show of ALPHA TV, Mr Kalimeris explained that NERIT and EBU have to solve some technical problems in order for Greek national television to become active member of the EBU something which is expected by December 5th. He is not optimistic that NERIT will make it and he considers unlikely to see Greece in the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest.
