Dnevni Avaz (Bosnian pronunciation: [dnêːʋniː ǎʋaːz]; English: Daily Voice) is a daily newspaper in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is published in Sarajevo.

Background[edit]

Dnevni Avaz evolved from a monthly 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.[1] It competes with Oslobođenje and SAN Daily News.

Dnevni Avaz is part of the Avaz publishing house, the biggest news house in Bosnia and Herzegovina.[1][2] The paper is based in Sarajevo and has a pro-Bosniak stance.[1][3]

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 Center (Former Oslobođenje Building), has been converted into a hotel, Radon Plaza Hotel (based on the owner's last name Radončić).

Supplements[edit]

Dnevni Avaz has published The New York Times International Weekly on Thursdays since 2009. This 8-page supplement features a selection of English language articles from The New York Times.
