GERMAN PUBLISHER BUYS 49 PER CENT SHARE IN 'BLIC'
14.11.2000: B92/MEDIA CENTER - Belgrade
(Beograd - B92/MEDIJA CENTAR) The largest European publishing house the German Gruner + Jahr yesterday released that it had taken over a 49 per cent share in the Belgrade newspaper publishing firm Blic. The release notes that Blic prints the Yugoslav daily with the circulation of 175,000 copies. 'Being an independent paper, Blic had an important role in the democratic change in Serbia,' note the German publishers who print 100 papers and magazines in 13 countries, including one of the most important German weeklies Stern. The Blic contract is the first major foreign investment into a media house after the change in the country.
Veselin Simonovic, editor-in-chief of Blic explained B 92 that the hitherto foreign owner know to the public under the firm of 'Mitsui' had sold their share to the Germans. Asked whether there was any danger of a media magnate obtaining monopoly of the largest Serbian media Simonovic says that foreign capital should not be feared even in the media and that it is up to the editorial staff and the publishers to fight for their autonomy.
