Andi Hadjicostis (September 1968 in Nicosia - January 11, 2010[1]) was a Cypriot businessman and media mogul. Hadjicostis is credited with creating Sigma TV, a popular commercial television station in Cyprus, serving as the station's CEO.[2] He also served as the CEO of the private, family-owned Dias Media Group, which controls Cypriot television stations, radio and newspapers.[2] Hadjicostis modernized and reformed Dias during his tenure.[2]

Andis Hadjicostis was shot and killed with a shotgun on January 11, 2010, while leaving his home in the Engomi neighborhood of Nicosia.[2] He was 41 years old at the time of his murder.[2]

The Simerini, a Dias owned newspaper, printed the front page editorial headline, "Cowardly murder – they killed Andy Hadjicostis in cold blood."[2] Sigma TV switched to classical music programming on news of Hadjicostis' murder.[2]

Cypriot police allege that Hadjicostis was murdered by a former employee, Elena Skordelli, a presenter on one of the victim's television stations. Skordelli had recently been fired. Skordelli, her brother and two other men allegedly conspired to kill Hadjicostis.[3]
