History and profile

Jutarnji list was launched in April 1998,[5] becoming the first successful Croatian daily newspaper to appear since the 1950s.[6] It was named after a Zagreb daily that used to circulate before World War II. The newspaper is part of Europapress Holding media group.

Jutarnji is considered to be a more left-leaning liberal daily than Večernji list.

In 2003, Jutarnji list launched a comprehensive Sunday edition, Nedjeljni Jutarnji. On 19 February 2005, Jutarnji list published an exhaustive biography of Ante Gotovina.[7][8]

The paper quickly took the majority of Croatian media market and became one of the most read newspapers in that country. In the first five years it sold more than 214 million copies.[6] During the actual economic crisis the number of sold copies diminished from about 80,000 in 2007 to 52,763 in 2013.[6][9] The crisis hit in the same manner other daily newspapers in Croatia.[10] The circulation of Jutarnji list was 66,000 copies in October 2014.[11]

In February 2008, Jutarnji list was involved in a scandal when it published an interview[12][13] with what was thought to be Croatian Prime Minister Ivo Sanader. The reporter contacted 23-year-old Viktor Zahtila by e-mail and SMS, who he assumed to be the prime minister.[14] Zahtila replied via email[15] and nowhere explicitly stated that he was Ivo Sanader. The reporter, Davor Butković, never checked to see if he was actually communicating with the PM.
