The accent system of the Croatian language is one of the most problematic language norms and has been the subject of debate for quite some time. This is the precise issue resulting in an unclear vision of the prosody of the Croatian standard language, which complicates finding out the correct responses to the issues of accent. In addition to national television stations, local stations also serve as an example of proper pronunciation for their viewers, who look to them for exemplary speakers. In this paper, improper stress positions were sought using the auditory analysis of the announcements and features of news programs of three national (HTV, RTL, Nova TV) and three local television stations (Varaždinska televizija, Vinkovačka televizija, Mreža TV Split), and the corpus totaled 72 minutes. National television stations averaged 0.58 errors per minute, and local stations averaged 1.72 errors per minute. Štokavian speakers on local television stations averaged 1.2 errors, and non-Štokavian speakers averaged 3.5 errors per minute. In terms of national television stations, fewer errors per minute (0.46) were found in stations working together with phoneticians, compared to stations lacking in the above department (0.83). This paper provides a brief overview of how accent is taught in primary and secondary schools and universities. Instructions are provided for lessons with accompanying exercises involving lecturers and students. Three methods have been explored on how to properly teach journalists to recognize and reproduce the correct accent in the text given.
