She’s the new EIC of The Local Sweden
Emma Löfgren has been appointed new editor-in-chief of the Swedish edition of The Local, the news site covering Swedish news in English.
‘‘In Emma we’ve got a person who understands what the world wants to read about Sweden while she at the same time has the ability to navigate Swedish society,’’ James Savage, co-founder and Managing Editor of The Local, says in a press release.
Löfgren has been working as acting editor-in-chief since February 2015. She’s the first Swedish native to be appointed to the position.
Before joining the site, she worked at newspapers in Scotland for three years.
The appointment comes shortly after Maddy Savage decided to leave the news site to start her freelance career.
Savage was a guest in Smashdig’s Podcast where she talked about her decision to become a freelancer, why she moved to Sweden and how she’ll bring the BBC voice to the Swedish people.
