Media Daily decided to conduct anonymous surveys on the satisfaction of publishers (broadcasters) with the work of media regulators in Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, and Northern Macedonia.
We conduct surveys, separately by country, independently, and without agreement with media regulators or any other legal or natural entity, in order to get your honest answers.
The purpose of these anonymous surveys is to objectively assess the satisfaction of publishers (broadcasters) with the work of media regulators, their independence, and their understanding of the work of the media.
The first survey we conducted from March 10 to 17 is a survey on the work of the Croatian Agency for Electronic Media (AEM).
We sent the questionnaire to the e-mail addresses of 140 publishers, and we received answers from 60 of them. We will publish the survey in three parts. We asked a total of 20 questions.
The first question in the survey was related to the evaluation of the work of the professional services of the Agency for Electronic Media. According to the answers received, the AEM expert services received an average grade of 3.7, and you can see the individual grades from the table.
Another question to the publishers was which person at AEM would you highlight as the most professional? The publishers singled out a total of eight people plus the answers EVERYONE and NOBODY. Everyone received the most positive votes, and as an individual, Tomislav Pupačić received the most votes.
We also asked publishers to give their comments about AEM employees. Publishers generally have a positive opinion of the employees of the Electronic Media Agency.
A total of 30 radio publishers, 18 electronic publishers and 12 television publishers took part in this survey.
If you look at the structure of persons according to positions in publishers in the survey, the most answers were given in the positions of director / editor-in-chief, then media owner, and finally employees.
Tomorrow at 11 am we publish the second part of the survey in which we will publish the results of what publishers think about whether the Council for Electronic Media (VEM) makes independent decisions on awarding concessions, how they distribute funds from the Fund for Media Pluralism and whether they give enough attention to publishers.
