GSP.ro achieves record numbers in November; announces new video strategy and appoints Chief Content Officer and Deputy Chief Content Officer

GSP.ro is pleased to announce a dynamic change in the editorial management, which will contribute to the further development of the digital sports media platform. 

With more than 70 million monthly impressions, GSP.ro is already the most influential Romanian sports media platform, but November was a record month. With 4.577.951 visitors, GSP had the best month in its history in terms of unique visitors on the site. Also, compared to all websites measured by SATI, GSP.ro has the longest average session duration per month.

New appointments

Predrag Mihailovic, Managing Director and Chief Content Officer of sportal.rs in Serbia and Co-Managing Director of Sportal Romania ad interim since October 2023, takes on another ad interim role at GSP.ro. Effective immediately, Predrag will act as Chief Content Officer. 

Predrag Mihailovic, a distinguished journalist with 20 years at Ringier Serbia, became one of its youngest editors at 23, leading Showbizz, Culture, and TV Guide at “Blic”. He later managed politics, foreign news, and was Blic Sunday’s editor-in-chief. From 2016-2022, he helmed “Blic”, Serbia’s top newspaper. In 2022, Predrag became managing director of Ringier Sport Media Serbia and editor-in-chief of Sportal.rs, quickly leading it to market leadership in Serbia.

Mitrut Docan is appointed as the new deputy editor-in-chief with immediate effect. He has been working as an online editor since joining the company in 2008. Over the years, his agile approach to traffic development and social media engagement has helped to consolidate and continuously grow GSP.ro’s digital presence. In his new role as Deputy Editor-in-Chief, Mitrut will use his extensive experience to improve editorial operations and drive the integration of innovative content strategies across GSP.ro’s sports platforms, in line with Ringier Sports Media Group’s playbook.

New video strategy at GSP.ro

At the same time, GSP.ro’s video production department will play a great role in the further development of the brand. Under the leadership of Sebastian Culea, GSP.ro will drive the video productions and the exploration of new formats that resonate with the sports-loving audience. Sebastian has been with the company for the last 12 years in various roles – he has evolved from a reporter to a producer and video editor.

The new cooperation with SNTV, the sports video service of The Associated Press (AP), signed in November, allows GSP.ro to further expand its offering with in-depth highlights from a variety of competitions, including the German Bundesliga, the English FA Cup, the Portuguese League, the AFC Champions League and many more. GSP.ro users will have the privilege of watching highlights of the most important European basketball games from the EuroLeague, as well as the latest sports videos from the NBA and NCAA championships. There will also be news content from sports events around the world. 

Predrag Mihailovic: “Mitrut and Sebastian will play an important role in the newly established editorial leadership team of GSP.ro. Both are key people for the further development of the GSP.ro sports media brand as the number one platform for quality sports content and digital innovation in Romania. Congratulations to Mitrut and Sebastian on this well-deserved promotion.”
