Alo!

The tabloid daily newspaper Alo was first published in September 2007. Even though Alo, since its foundation till July 2017, had the same publisher and owner as daily Blic, Alo is less informative and political in content than Blic while being much more tabloid in style.

New owner of Alo newspaper is Sasa Blagojevic through his newly-established company - Dnevne novine Alo.The newspaper was founded and published by Ringier ltd, which was also the owner and publisher of Blic newspaper. Since the founding of Swiss-German Ringier Axel Springer in 2010, this company has been Alo’s owner and publisher until July 2017, when the Alo media outlets were sold to the new company.

The owner of Alo, Sasa Blagojevic, is also the director and one of the owners of marketing and consultancy agency Trilenium, but is unknown to the public in Serbia, since he is new to the media market. Furthermore, news media in Serbia have reported that Sasa Blagojevic maintains close ties to the ruling Serbian Progressive Party.

He founded the company Dnevne novine Alo in March 2017, three months before Ringier published the statement in which it announced the sale of Alo. The address of the new company Dnevne novine Alo is the same as the Belgrade address of Ringier Axel Springer ltd according to the official data of the Serbian Business Registers Agency.
