“Behind his magnificent bacchantes and his laughing eyes, our colleague [Michel Texier] will not only have experienced the golden age of the Lyon press, but there will be a broad summary”, describes Serge Tonioni, former secretary general of the Lyon Press Club, via a forum published by our colleagues from The Lyonnais.
Michel Texier, 76 years old and father of three children, died on Monday August 8 at the Saint-Etienne hospital “after having fought for a long time against the disease with unfailing optimism”, describes Serge Tonioni.
A “passionate and passionate” man
He was president of the Club de la presse de Lyon twice, in 1985-86 and from 2004 to 2006. He also worked for Progress and The Expressbefore launching his weekly Thursday-Lyon in 1994. At the end of his career, Michel Texier was editor-in-chief for Intermedia.
