It was established on 19 March 1992 with aim to "provide full and objective coverage of events in the country (Serbia) and the region of Southeast Europe".
In 2000, the agency was fined by the government (the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia under Slobodan Milošević) for publishing anti-establishment materials. The agency was fined 150,000 dinars (approx. US$12,860 or €13,630 at the time), and the agency's director and chief editor were each fined 80,000 dinars (approx. US$6,860 or €7,270 at the time). The fines were denounced by Reporters Without Borders. Over the time, it has received funds from the National Endowment for Democracy.
