Why are you broadcasting from Södra Ryd?
New technology is making it possible for us to broadcast from other places outside of the studio. That’s something we would like to take advantage of and that is the reason we are starting a news room in Södra Ryd.
The Swedish public radio has a duty to represent all of society, with a focus on equality and diversity. We want to find the stories and meet the people who traditionally have not been represented in the media. We think we will meet our goals best by being present in, for example, Södra Ryd to enable a new audience to get to know us – and we them.
Södra Ryd is an area in Skövde, inhabited by approximately 6 000 inhabitants, with almost all government agencies represented – e.g schools and a health center. We believe that our presence will enable us to get a better understanding of what is important to the people who live in Södra Ryd and better tell those stories.
This is a way for us to meet people who normally have no contact with the Swedish public radio and make them aware of us and to reach a new audience.
Why did you not choose another city/area in Skaraborg?
Each day we go to different parts of Skaraborg to interview and meet people for our news stories. We also broadcast frequently from other places other than Skövde. For this initiative we chose Södra Ryd but the next time we might do a similar initiative somewhere else in Skaraborg.

We will be at different locations each time so if you see us you can just contact us directly. Occationately we will be based in at the library in Södra Ryd.
