Andrius Tapinas, a TV host and founder of the internet television Laisvės TV, has been named the most influential journalist in Lithuania, according to a survey by Spinter Tyrimai for the delfi.lt news website, published on Wednesday.

According to the public opinion, Lietuvos Rytas TV journalist Rūta Janutienė came in second in the rating, followed by TV producer and TV host Edmundas Jakilaitis.

Lifestyle and talk show host Rūta Mikelkevičiūtė, journalist Edita Mildažytė, political scientist Rimvydas Valatka, TV host Audrė Kudabienė, former TV host and journalist Algimantas Čekuolis and TV journalists Rita Miliūtė and Daiva Žeimytė also got into the TOP-10.

Meanwhile, representatives of the elite in Lithuania, surveyed by magazine Reitingai, have a slightly different opinion and consider Jakilaitis the most influential journalist in the country.
