Lrytas is Lithuania's third most popular website. Originally the online version of the daily paper Lietuvos rytas, it has developed into an independent website, although it still has close ties to the paper. Lrytas is the leading portal for video news because it frequently cooperates with the TV broadcaster Lietuvos ryto televizija, which belongs to the same media group.
