Dusan Saponja was born in 1976 in Zadar, Croatia. The year of 1995 marks Dusan Saponja’s first direct involvement with media: for radio B92 he co-authored the “Srbokap” (“Serbo-Cop”), a popular radio drama wittily and subtly criticising the absurdity and ethical blindness of Milosevic’s police achinery.
Consequently the B92 grew from an underground radio station into one of the most respective media networks in the region, and the third most viewed TV station in the country. Dusan Saponja’s involvement with it has changed accordingly: mainly due to celebrated “Ciklotron” and “Fatalni putopis” (A Fatal Journal) documentary TV series.
