Tjednik (Weekly) was launched in March 1997. Founded by the veteran Economist Balkans and Eastern Europe correspondent Chris Cviic and the editor of independent monthly Erasmus, Slavko Goldstein, Tjednik tried to capture the middle ground on the Croatian media scene with dispassionate and objective reporting. Unfortunately, its circulation was never high enough to render it financially independent. At first Tjednik relied on donors from abroad (USAID), later it was sold to the Croatian businessman and politician, Radomir Cacic, and finally, in March 1998 it stopped with publishing. Jeremy Drucker's article which originally appeared in the April issue of the Transitions magazine, gives the story of the magazine in more detail and analyses the causes for Tjednik's failure.
