Radio Kameleon is independent, non-governmental and non-party
radio diffuse and publishing company. Since the December 1992,
radio Kameleon has been working in the extremely difficult political
and technical circumstances in a war-stricken area.
Radio Kameleon oriented its programme towards maintenance and
development of living together and equality of citizens regardless
of national, political, party, religion. It is supporting and
promoting all those who recognise independent and civic Bosnia
and Herzegovina; who contribute to peace and development of
private initiatives, economy revitalisation and reconstruction;
talented and creative individuals in science, culture, and art.
It is influencing public opinion on the way that it can judge
objectively and to know how to evaluate events, activities and
initiatives related to peace and freedom for all citizens of
Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The concept of Kameleons broadcasting is: an independent
journalism, critical and objective. It gives a special notice to programmes
for youth and children. The programme consists of news reports,
commentaries, educate and cultural programmes and entertainment.
The main qualities of this station are its objectiveness and
professionalism, and their already mentioned concern for youth
Radio Kameleon is cooperative to all kinds of mass media from the
whole Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as to those in the world by
transmission of their news programme on the local language
(Radio Free Europe", Radio Deutsche Welle",
Voice of America").
Political and party independence of Kameleon is target of
nationalistic and war inciting media from all parts of former Yugoslavia.
Radio station has been under the continuous pressure of the authorities
who gave licences to nationalist radio stations which are very
close to Kameleons so that they seriously affect their
audibility. The editor-in-chief was mobilised by the second corps
of the Army of Bosnia-Herzegovina. Finally, the authorities
succeeded to move Kameleon out of their working rooms and gave
them to Radio Hayat" (Muslim nationalist radio
station). In spite of all, radio Kameleon is unquestionably the
radio station with the largest number of listeners, and even in
the most difficult circumstances it always managed to maintain
The radio is continually broadcasting 24 hours a day programme
for three years. In this year, their main objective is to improve
audibility and range of audience. It is through all kinds of media that
Kameleon will address to kindergartens, schools and universities,
public organisations, citizens associations, parliamentary groups
and political movements which will work on the achievement of
global objectives and activities on establishing real peace and democracy.
As the radios current programme is primarily aimed to
younger urban population of Tuzla, they plan to open the second channel,

planning to establish common printing company with some other
