General Information

Founding Year



Aleksandar Rodic

Affiliated Interests Founder

Aleksandar Rodic is the son of Radisav Rodic, founder of the Kurir tabloid. Aleksandar is a controversial Serbian businessman who owns many companies in the field of media business and/or other.

Aleksandar Rodic has been in the media business since 2009, when he took over the management of Kurir daily paper following his father's arrest.

Under his management, Kurir has maintained close ties with every government to follow with seldom ups and downs. This has subsequently led to the company's growth. In 2014, Aleksandar Rodic spread the business by acquiring Adria Media Group, the largest media group in the Balkans which publishes Elle, National Geographic, Newsweek, Cosmopolitan, Men's Health...

In the November of 2015 Rodic got in the center of attention, when the famous front page of Kurir was published, "Srbijo, izvini". Aleksandar Rodic, author of the article “Srbijo izvini” created a steer in media community and public, when apologizing to the citizens of Serbia for, as he stated, being forced to be a part of propaganda team of Aleksandar Vučić. Following the publishing of the article there was ongoing public dispute between A. Rodic, Zeljko Mitrovic, the owner of Pink TV and Dragan J. Vucicevic, owner and editor of tabloid Informer. This public media conflict lasted for several months, after things got back to normal with no public debate about A. Rodic statements.

In the June of 2017 Kurir daily published the article "Vucic preko EPS finansira privatnu vojsku". Aleksandar Vucic, former Prime minister and now President, was linked to financing the football fans group through public enterprises "Electric Power Industry of Serbia" and "Airport Nikola Tesla Belgrade" in exchange for their favours. This led to another series of public conflict between A. Rodic, D.J. Vucicevic (Informer tabloid) and Zeljko Mitrovic (Pink TV). A series of scandalous front pages followed and special program on Pink. Aleksandar Rodic announced that he is going politics since he has the courage to fight against A. Vucic dictatorship and his censorship of the Serbian media.
