Salzburg – In memory of Sepp Forcher, a requiem with Archbishop Franz Lackner and Archabbot Korbinian Birnbacher will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, in Salzburg. The fair for the legendary presenter who died on December 19, shortly after his 91st birthday, will be broadcast live on ORF 2 from 2 p.m. Due to the current situation, only invited guests can take part in the Requiem on site, announced the ORF.
