The Länstidningen Södertälje newspaper premiered its new web cast last night. The show will be published on the site every Thursday at 6 p.m. local time.

‘‘There’s such a big part of the population that hasn’t yet learned Swedish but have the right to access stories about local news. This is in line with our democratic mission; to reach as many people as possible in our distributing area,’’ says LT’s editor-in-chief Anna Liljehag to her own newspaper.

Around 49 per cent of the inhabitants in the municipality of Södertälje is born outside of Sweden, according to Södertälje Kommun’s web site.
