‘‘I’m really happy and humbled. It’s going to be so much fun bringing back the world to the P3 listeners,’’ Koukkari Mbenga says in a statement provided to Smashdig. ‘‘Hopefully I can contribute to making the world a little bit smaller and more comprehensible at the same time.’’

Koukkari Mbenga has worked at P3 Nyheter since 2013 when she started as an intern. She has experience from producing shows about international events and as a news host.

The youth correspondent is tasked with producing interesting and engaging journalism of complex issues.

Koukkari Mbenga will assume her new role in February of next year.

‘‘Palmira also has an ability to pick up topics that falls in between the news feeds,’’ Sîlan Diljen, head of P3 Stockholm, says in the statement.
