Media Market -> Macedonia
Economic influence on the independence of Macedonian media
28.04.2005: Snezana Trpevska
The present number of electronic media is too large for such a tiny market and this is another unfavorable factor in the work of any commercial media. In December 2004, there were in total 132 commercial broadcasters, of which seven are nationwide (4 TV and 3 radio stations), and 125 are local (73 radio and 52 TV stations). Except for the commercial stations, there is a public broadcasting service, the Macedonian Radio and Television (with 3 TV and 3 radio networks) and 29 public local radio stations (12 of which also have TV stations). Beside domestic terrestrial broadcasters, the audience has access to many foreign programs of 65 cable operators.
Media Market -> Croatia
Economic Pressure on Media
13.04.2005: Stjepan Malovic
The contemporary idea of media industry is based on advertising income. It was a long time ago when major newspaper income came from selling papers at booths while a minor part was obtained from advertising. Today, the situation is reversed. Media outlets live off advertising and the advertising industry turns huge money. In 2004, advertisers spent more than three billion Kunas on advertising (approx. 400 million €).
Media Market -> Bulgaria
28.07.2004: Alexander Boytchev
The majority of publishers always tend to explain the movement of circulation figures with the impoverishment of the Bulgarian customer. It is a convenient explanation, often accompanied with the reasoning that real circulations may decline, but that the so-called social circulation (i.e. the number of people reading one copy of the paper) increases. The price of papers (between 20 stotinki and 2 lewa or 10 euro cents and 1 euro) is one more reason for the Bulgarian not to buy in these difficult times - in the country you can buy bread, milk or even two cups of coffee for the price of one paper.

Media Market -> Slovenia
11.05.2004: Gojko Bervar
The problem with the new shuffle on the Slovene media market, namely, is that people with little or no knowledge of the peculiarities of media have entered this field. They do not care what newspapers look like or what is their history ? the only thing they see are the profits that they are supposed to bring.
Media Market -> Macedonia
10.05.2002: German Filkov
Ripe for reform - in brief, this is the situation in Macedonian broadcasting, a field that has not managed to become a profitable business even 10 years after the appearance of the first private broadcaster. The broadcasting share is simply too small for a total of four national private radio and TV stations, a public national broadcaster with three radio and three television channels, 107 private local radio and television stations, and 29 public local radio and TV stations. In addition, a public competition has been announced for 37 new broadcasting concessionaires.
Media Market -> Bosnia and Herzegovina
03.05.2002: Radenko Udovicic
The oldest Bosnian-Herzegovinian daily newspaper Oslobodjenje has started a process of re-capitalization which will end with the sale of 51 percent of ownership of the newspaper for 4.7 million convertible marks (approximately 2.4 million EUR). The paper's former director Janez Cadez told us that this is an internal offer to sell shares to prevent a direct competitor from buying the paper and establishing market monopoly.
Media Market -> Slovenia
11.04.2002: Bachtiar Djalil
Bachtiar Djalil of the Slovene Competition Protection Office writes about broadcasting market and the conditions under which concentrations arise in this sector.
Media Market -> FR Yugoslavia (Montenegro)
01.04.2002: Velizar Sredanovic

Media Market -> Slovenia
12.03.2002: Andrej Plahutnik
Competition in the media arena is equally exposed to distortions as any other market competition. Andrej Plahutnik draws on his experience in general competition supervision to sketch out the basics of competition among media and its protection. The text is based on the conference paper presented at the international workshop on the Legislation in the Field of Broadcasting: Public Service and Commercial Broadcasters, held at Bled in Slovenia between 11 and 12 May 2001. The workshop was organised by Slovenian National UNESCO Commission, Broadcasting Council of the Republic of Slovenia, Institute for Media Law Ljubljana and Media Plan Institute Sarajevo.
Media Market -> Bosnia and Herzegovina
25.01.2002: Nenad Brkic & Jelisavka - Eta Madunic
Development of the media scene in Bosnia-Herzegovina has raised the issue of efficient management of media organizations and the need for education in media management. Media Plan Institute conducted a research in June and July 2001 with the aim of establishing the views of managers in media organizations in Bosnia-Herzegovina on media management education. The obtained results show that the majority of media managers in Bosnia-Herzegovina believe that the success of their respective organizations greatly depends on the capabilities of management teams, and that there is need and room for advancing management know-how and skills of people in the media.
