United Media, the media division of United Group, plans to expand to the Slovenian market this year by setting up a news portal under the N1 brand, which is already active in the region. The Luxembourg-based United Media has already opened the Adria News subsidiary in Ljubljana under which the N1 Slovenija web portal will operate.
According to unofficial information obtained by the newspaper Finance, the portal will kick off in spring. Katja Šeruga, who previously worked as a journalist at public broadcaster RTV Slovenija and commercial broadcaster POP TV, has been appointed Adria News director as well as the portal’s editor-in-chief. The portal will seek to boost and elevate journalism in Slovenia, Šeruga said.
