The new owner of Kurir, 12 portals and another 14 print publications, instead of Aleksandar Rodic, is Igor Zezelj, the owner and director of Wireless Media, the Journalists’ Association of Serbia (UNS) reported.
On the website of the Business Registers Agency, the decision adopted on January 4, 2019, lists Zezelj and Privredno drustvo za pruzanje telekomunikacionih usluga Mondo INC d.o.o. Beograd (Stari grad) instead of Rodic.
Zezelj and Rodic did not respond to UNS’ question regarding the price of Adria Media Group (AMG), the publisher of these media.
Let us remind that, in October 2018, AMG reached an agreement on the partnership with Wireless Media and the Mondo portal, as confirmed for UNS by Rodic at the time.
Zezelj then denied that there was a strategic partnership of AMG with Wireless Media and Mondo, but said that AMG and Wireless Media had a “very intensive and fruitful business cooperation”.
Mondo is not listed in the Media Register. However, on the website of Telekom Srbija (www.mts.rs), in the “our websites” section, this portal is listed as the company’s website.
The website of the Serbian National Internet Domain Registry (RNIDS) also says that Telekom Srbija a.d. is the owner of the mondo.rs domain.
Let us remind that, as per its portal, AMG owns Kurir, Glossy, Lena, Financial Times, Men’s Health, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Sensa, National Geographic Serbia, Lepa & Srećna, Winter, Summer, Asfalt, Cosmo Campus and Newsweek, as well as portals elle.rs, yumama.com, kurir.rs, nationalgeographic.rs, menshealth.rs, cosmopolitan.rs, lovesensa.rs, stvarukusa.rs, lepaisrecna.rs, still, glossy.rs and espresso.rs.
