Televizija Vijesti

TV Vijesti has been the most viewed TV station in Montenegro since December 2016, with the most popular informative programme since the beginning of measuring of such data (e.g. Vijesti’s news show at 18:30h has been the most viewed TV content in Montenegro since January 2015, according to all available research).

By the end of 2022, Televizija Vijesti had 68 employees. However, part of their administrative staff is shared with the daily ”Vijesti” and portal ”Vijesti online” but there is no precise publicly available information on the ratio.

A major change in ownership occurred in 2022 when the United Media s.a.r.l. became the majority shareholder in Televizija Vijesti by acquiring 51% shares from previous owners. However, some of those individuals, through their family members, kept part of the shares in Televizija Vijesti. They are owners of MNE Media Two d.o.o., which holds 32% shares in the Televizija Vijesti d.o.o.

According to the Agency for Electronic Media (AEM) report, TV Vijesti has the highest in-house production of content compared to other commercial broadcasters in Montenegro – about 38%.
