Stefan Tanev was indeed a prominent figure in Bulgarian journalism during the interwar period. As the editor-in-chief of the widely circulated newspaper “Morning” for 33 years, he wielded significant influence in the media landscape of that time. Unfortunately, he faced a tumultuous fate, being convicted by the People’s Court, labeled as a yellow seal tycoon, and ultimately dying in prison.
A memorial plaque commemorating Stefan Tanev’s legacy is affixed to a fence post at his former residence, located at 3 Vasil Aprilov St. in Sofia. This plaque serves as a reminder of his impactful contributions to Bulgarian journalism, despite the challenging circumstances he encountered in his later years.
