Igor Božić, who has been the executive producer of N1 television in Serbia since its founding, has been appointed today to the position of news director in this media company.
“We are convinced that N1 will become an even more influential media company with the new management and the team of top journalists it already has. The stable foundation we have built in recent years, during which N1 has been recognized by the public as a reliable source of information for citizens, allows us to continue to develop and strengthen our team and implement new, large projects”, states the management of Adria News.
“These changes will not affect the editorial policy of N1. We remain consistent with professional standards and continue to work in the public interest as before. Our program has a whole team of professionals behind, who have been making a credible information program for seven years already, which the public has recognized. All employees in N1 are aware of that responsibility and obligation towards the public”, Igor Božić pointed out.
