Although he reached the age of retirement (65 years) in January 2019, Bujosevic will nevertheless remain in the job of General Director of RTS, thanks to a decision of the Managing Committee, which extended his term for six months.
Bujosevic has been the General Director of RTS since 2015. Over the last few months, he has been a target of criticism by the opposition and protesting citizens, who have been demonstrating every Saturday since December in Belgrade under the slogan ‘1 of 5 million’. The protesting citizens and opposition see Bujosevic as one of those responsible for the fact that the RTS is not reporting on the protests, the protesters’ demands for the government to be removed, as well as for the fact that opposition leaders rarely appear in political debates on the public broadcaster.
Paradoxically, the current Director is author of the book ‘5th October – 24 Hour Coup’, which describes the last day of the demonstrations on the streets of Belgrade leading to the overthrow of Slobodan Milosevic’s regime, and has a renowned career as a journalist behind him.
