Meta Data

RTS does not have separate financial data for each channel of the public broadcaster. Financial reports are produced collectively for the entire company. In this sense, the MOM team was not able to publish financial data pertaining to this channel.

Milivoje Mihajlovic, the former director of Radio Beograd, was relieved from his job on the recommendation of the Managing Council of RTS but then appointed assistant to the RTS Director in October 2017. He was replaced in his original job by Milan Nedic during December 2017. On the recommendation of RTS Director Dragan Bujosevic and Radio Director Milan Nedic, Milica Kuburovic was made the acting managing editor of the Radio 202 program in May 2018. She was preceded in this position by Snezana Grujic.

The announcement by Radio Director Milan Nedic that Radio 202 would be transformed into a music radio station, which implies the abolition of news, cultural and sport content, was received with indignation among the radio station’s employees. The announcement also led to the brief creation, and rapid disappearance, of a Facebook group under the name “Sacuvajmo Dvestadvojku” [Save 202]. In one statement published in this group, it was claimed that the radio station had seen an increase in the number of listeners, hence the decision of the management to change its format made little sense.
