About Ognen

I have been a TV-host, anchorman and journalist throughout the 20 years of working experience, combined with the working experience of 10 years as an Editor of several different TV-shows and News Editions. My distinguished work as a Host and Journalist on a EU funded TV-project, where I filmed in 7 Balkan countries and as well as my work on the US Department of State’s “TV Co-Op” Fellowship has given me experience and a different point of view regarding the editorial decisions and the approach of the news. My media experience is quite various, and gives me a perspective of new approaches, different than the ones we are used to now – serviceable and servile news reporting, that brings more confusion to the viewers. My experience and work, helped me to be selected for a Research UN Fellow for the prestigious United Nations Fellowship Programme for Journalist “Reham al-Farra 2016”, held at the UNHQ – NYC, NY, USA. I’ve had the opportunity to cover and report for UN issues and as well as from the 71st General Assembly of the UN, as one of the 15 journalists, selected among the world countries-members of the UN Organization. My experience as an actor for 5 years and as a PR and Online Community Manager for several years gave knowledge of working in team. Everything mentioned so far, combined with the experience in the NGO sector, nevertheless if it was direct or indirect has made me a better citizen – an active and socially responsible one. Mentioning the NGO sector leads me to mentioning all of my works as a Trainer and Lecturer for communication, media-communication, social networking, PR and social inclusion.
