Lennart Hyland
Birth: Sep. 24, 1919
Death: Mar. 15, 1993

Radio/TV-personality, entertainer and journalist. Lennart Hyland became a legend in his own lifetime, and was a role model how to perform journalism and renewed the Swedish TV-medium completely during the early 60´s. He first made his name in a radio show called "Karusellen" (The Merry-go-round), which was followed up by a similar show for television: "Hylands hörna" (Hyland´s corner). In both these shows he established a communication with the listeners/viewers, that was unique. He also was a successful journalist in sports, and was to become a mentor for an entire generation of sports reporters at the Swedish Radio and TV. Upon his retirement, he settled down in his birthplace, Tranås. Lennart Hyland died from a heart failure. (bio by: Peter Robsahm)
