Infodrom is the only informative show for young people in our country. With news adapted to children, young viewers are up to date every week with events at home and around the world, meet an interesting peer or finally clarify a complex concept. The show is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, and we present its hosts, Klara Evo Kukovičič, Katja Špoljar and Maks Dakskobler, in a little more detail.
How did you get to Infodrom? Have you watched or known her before?
KLARA EVA: I came to the show completely unplanned: one day the editor Tina Antončič called me and asked if I would like to participate in the creation of Infodrom – because I knew the show before and because I like new challenges, I was immediately excited about by invitation.
KATJA: I met the infodrome through a friend who did a journalism internship here. Four years have passed since then. I think I also applied later if they would ever look for new employees, and over time the editor really contacted me. At that time, I exchanged my student job in marketing for a job on television, where I worked as a journalist for the first year.
MAX: I didn’t know the show before; probably, but I almost certainly saw it someday. I was invited to audition, eager for experience, I gladly responded.

Have you ever had any experience in front of the camera or performing?
KLARA EVA: Yes, I met performing in front of the camera in primary school, as teachers Garsia Kosinac and Katja Volčanjk started a great project, in which I appeared in a feature-length documentary about the hometown of Krško, which was a great success. , so a year later we made another film about dental prevention. In high school, my love for acting, film and theater, only intensified – Žiga Divjak, who was the director of our theater group at the time, and Rok Ilovar, who invited me to make short feature films several times, were also responsible for this. . When I look back today, I see that actually performing in one way or another has accompanied me since the beginning of my educational path. Although in recent years I have been much more involved in running events and performing live. That’s also why it’s great for me to be part of the Infodrom team, because that’s how I maintain and improve my performance in front of the camera.
KATJA: I had no experience before that, and with what we learned in college, we stood in front of the camera, for example. Otherwise, I didn’t like performing; I could say that I was quite shy in this area. In the first year, I tried my hand as the head of the Spletke section, which helped me a lot after I became the leader.
MAKS: Before that, I was gaining experience both in front of the camera and on stage, both as an amateur and as part of my studies. Earlier, in high school, however, I also became acquainted with networking and event management.
Why are reports for children important?
KLARA EVA: It seems to me that there is not enough awareness in schools about what is happening at home and around the world, there is not enough talk about current and sensitive topics, and they are exposed to various information online, including incorrect and unverified information. That is why it is important and right that there are shows like Infodrom, in which we talk about important topics for children and in which we try to make children happy to explore and strive for their general visibility.
KATJA: Because young people are our future and it is right to involve them and acquaint them with things that are important to them as well. That they have a voice in the world and feel heard from an early age.
MAKS: Just as it is important for each of us to understand the time in which he lives, to be in contact with it, to build our views and opinions while observing it – so it is with our youngest. It is therefore important that we present to them the widest possible world within the framework of their understanding.

What do you need to pay special attention to as hosts of an information show for children?
KLARA EVA: I would say that on word choice and accuracy. With my facial expressions and storytelling, I try to give the impression that I am their older sister, who sometimes explains the complicated world to them.
KATJA: I would say that we don’t feel tense, but that when watching the show they have the feeling that we are their friends or cool older siblings who help them understand or present something in an interesting, “cool” way.
MAX: I don’t think there are any special pitfalls. I would just like to emphasize honesty in their work or leadership – children feel it incredibly well!
What did you all learn from the show?
KLARA EVA: Among other things, I learned how important it is to be in front of the camera what you are. However, I am still learning how to combine creativity and precision in writing forecasts – a big thank you goes to journalists and editors who always have time for constructive criticism. I am happy to be able to learn from them.
KATJA: The show gave me, first and foremost, the confidence that it is no longer a problem for me to perform both in front of the camera and in front of people, which comes in very handy in other areas. However, RTV Slovenia provided me with numerous trainings, from speaking exercises to how to relax before the performance.
MAKS: The show first of all allowed me an insight into the technical and executive part of the shows, getting to know the work of the teams, the effort invested in the shows, I got to know the wheels, without which there would be no shows on our screens. Now I appreciate and respect this work much more.
What else do you do when you’re not in front of the cameras?
KLARA EVA: When I’m not in front of the cameras, I’m on stage and connecting events and happenings. During the weekends, I like to jump in the hills, climb and discover the world or Slovenia. Sometimes I wish the day had even more hours to be able to devote to all the hobbies.
KATJA: I do a lot of marketing, social networking and video production. Lately, I’ve also been doing a bit more sports, which I’ve been pretty much neglecting so far.
MAX: I spend most of my time at the academy. As much as possible, I relax in nature, I love sports, I love the mountains, and of course I sometimes relax with a good series or movie.
Your greatest pleasure (which of course is not related to the show).
KLARA EVA: The greatest pleasure is when you go to bed in the evening and know that you have made the most of the day – whether you spent it with friends, at work or in nature.
KATJA: Travel, sailing, photography, animals.
MAX: The greatest pleasure? Huh, I don’t know, probably any project, either in the theater or in front of the camera, where a really creative environment is created, where the process is open and playful. Of course, I also enjoy traveling and discovering something new!
