BackgroundEdit

"Dnevni avaz" evolved from a weekly publication "Bošnjački avaz" which was first published in September 1993. In 1994 it became known simply as "Avaz" and was published weekly in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Germany. In 1995 it was reestablished by Fahrudin Radončić as a daily newspaper.[3]

Dnevni avaz is part of the "avaz-roto press" publishing house, the biggest media house in Bosnia and Herzegovina.[3][4] The paper is based in Sarajevo and has a pro-Bosniak stance.[3][5]

As of 2006, the Avaz publishing house was expanded with the start of the construction of the Avaz Twist Tower a 176 m skyscraper in Sarajevo’s Marijin Dvor neighborhood, in the Centar Municipality of Sarajevo. The company's former headquarters, the Avaz Business Centre (Former Oslobođenje Building), has been converted into a hotel, Radon Plaza Hotel (based on the owner's last name Radončić).

SupplementsEdit
