Joining us in the Radio Sweden studio this Friday is editor-in-chief of the newspaper 8 Sidor, Malin Crona. She has worked in the Swedish media for fifteen years, and took on the job as head of the paper last year. Somewhat in the media shadow, 8 sidor, or eight pages in English, provides news and information in easy-to-read Swedish, free from all the jargon you often find in the rest of the media.
Currently the paper survives on official funding and subscriptions, but this funding has recently been up for debate. A recent government-sponsored study says the paper and its organisation should be part of a state agency. Hear Malin Crona discuss this and what makes 8 Sidor unique and important.
