The website of Radio-Television Serbia (RTS) is among the 10 most visited news websites in Serbia. The news content is based on the television and radio programs of RTS, and includes the television schedules for all RTS channels, as well as premier announcements and other production content. The website of the public broadcaster was created in 1999, when news was published once a day, after the main evening news, Dnevnik 2. The website was redesigned in 2008 and now offers live streaming along with the possibility of watching RTS programs online. The RTS website is followed by around 350,000 people on Facebook. 

Aside from the website, in early 2018 RTS launched the multimedia internet platform RTS Planeta, which enables viewers to watch all television and radio channels live, as well as delayed viewing for up to 72 hours.

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.
