Monitor is a weekly magazine covering economic, political and social issues. It was founded by Miodrag Miško Perović. The first edition was published on October 19th 1990. Monitor has always been a critical medium analyzing the Montenegrin state, political, economic and social developments by calling each phenomena by its name. This is why they were quite often critical of the government but also municipal leadership. This created the environment in which their journalists were frequently threatened, some of them also physically assaulted.

Monitor uses the printing house of the "Daily Press", the publisher of ND Vijesti. Monitor publishes 900 copies per issue, but they also have a website where the same articles are available.
