Fmr U.S. President, Officials, Watergate Reporters To Attend Romanian News Channel Launch In Sept

Thiess said other special guests expected at the launch are journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, who did much of the news reporting on the Watergate scandal, and former Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar Lopez, who is currently on the board of directors of Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation.

"The former U.S. president's team has confirmed he (George W. Bush) will come to Romania," Thiess said Friday in an exclusive interview for www.paginademedia.ro. He said the future TV news channel will be run by a current head of one of Romania's biggest TV networks.

The planned TV news channel is part of the same media group as the newly-launched newspaper Puterea and the media group is also planning the creation of a national radio network.

Thiess said he doesn't exclude a joint venture with CNN for the new TV news channel.

Newspaper Puterea was launched on April 15 and had former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev as a special guest.

The newspaper is published by UK-based News&Media Investment Limited, which Thiess represents in Romania.
