Gordana Knezevic is the Director of RFE/RL’s Balkan Service. Before coming to RFE/RL in January 2008, Gordana worked as an online editor with Reuters News Agency in Canada, regularly contributing to the Toronto Star and CBC Radio while there. Before relocating to Canada, Gordana lived in Bosnia, where she was the Deputy Editor of Oslobodjenje, the internationally recognized Sarajevo-based daily paper—which never stopped publishing during the Bosnian War.
