BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Serbia's state television says its general manager, Aleksandar Tijanic, an influential journalist and a former information minister under late strongman Slobodan Milosevic, has died. He was 63.
RTS television did not reveal the cause of death.
Emergency services spokeswoman Nada Macura says Tijanic collapsed and died outside his home in Belgrade on Monday.
Tijanic was a controversial figure with a long journalism career.
He wrote for prominent Serbian newspapers, worked as a columnist and headed two local television stations before becoming head of state TV in 2004.
Tijanic was information minister under Milosevic in 1994-96, but turned against the former Yugoslav president in the late 1990s to become an adviser to Milosevic's successor after 2000.
Tijanic had a wife and two children. Funeral arrangements were not immediately available.
