Even though his show recorded envious ratings, Hloverka replaced him as editor of dossier.hr for unknown reasons.
The Croatian television journalist for HTV, Petar Stefanic, will no longer be the editor of the show “Dossier.hr”, according to Hloverka Novak Srzic, who gave the order to replace him, but she did not want to give the reason for the layoff.
“I cannot speak now. I am outside, I cannot tell you anything. Call me tomorrow” said Hloverka Novak Srzic.
Critics praised his show
Nobody exactly knows the reason for Stefanic being fired, as he said himself. The explanation should arrive later today.
“I do not know why it happened, it seemed like everything was okay” he said.
Also, as he said, the show gained only praise, so that is an additional reason to be surprised.
“The show had good reviews from the critics and public, as well as the HRT committee, and had good ratings” said Stefanic.
However, we should also not ignore the fact that before becoming the editor of the mentioned show that was broadcast last week, Stefanic was suspended for a month. It is also not known why.
What is rotten at HTV?
Even though it was speculated that Stefanic will continue his career on Croatian radio, from where he came to Croatian television after Tihomir Ladisic was fired from the show “Otvoreno”, and Stefanic took his place, it seems that the young HTV journalist will not remain their employee. Stefanic should carry out the job of a journalist for internal politics. A possible reason for him being fired is that the main editor of HTV’s informative program, Hloverka Novak Srzic, did not want to keep him in her team, because he chose guests that spoke too critically of the Croatian government, despite his shows having great ratings.
However, the fact is that strange things, to say the least, are occurring at HTV. It seems that the state television is slowly staff, especially when you take into account that one of the most recognizable faces from HTV, Mislav Bago, transferred to the competition, Nova TV. Also, one of the pleasant faces to see on television was Zoran Sprajc, who sometimes ended the new show “Dnevnik” with ironic comments, is also seen less and less.
