Introduction to Swedish News Media

Sweden is the country that is most popular for the Scandinavian media. The regional media is dominated by Bonnier and the Modern Times Group (MTG). Television media is the most common medium for the dissemination of news in Sweden, followed by radio and online media.

The Swedish government owns and operates the Public Sveriges Television’s (SVT), which has a privately owned competitor in TV4. Many of the households in Sweden have television sets with multiple news channels.

The Public Sveriges also operates a radio channel for the national as well as regional coverage of news. The privately owned radio channels only focus on the national coverage.

Print Media

The newspapers and magazines owners get subsidies from the government irrespective of the political stance of the publication. No newspaper has reported to have any formal relation with a political party in the history of the national media.

The Swedish newspapers are often termed as independently liberal or conservative by the locals and media experts worldwide.

Media Freedom

Talking about the freedom of the press in Sweden, the 2019 survey of the Reporters Without Borders put the country on the third position of the World Press Freedom Index. While Norway led the chart, Finland had secured the second position. Therefore, Sweden is one of the most secured countries for practicing journalists and media professionals.

Online Media

According to the Internet World Stats, as much as 9.7 million of the Sweden’s population had access to the internet by June 2019. It is almost 97 percent of the total population of the country.

Conclusion

Sweden is one of the few countries in the world that provide complete security and comfort to the journalists and media professionals. The online media is witnessing the best of the development at the moment with the country’s leading broadcaster Sverigesradio offering a huge selection of news in English language using its website.

Government Subsidiary

Bonnier Tidskrifter AB enjoys the government subsidiary more than any other publication operating in the country. Some of the country’s most popular magazines like Amelia, Teknikens Värld, Allt om Mat and Veckans Affärer are owned by the Bonnier Tidskrifter AB group.

Allers förlag is the other leading publisher of Sweden as it owns Egmont, which publishes content in Danish, and French language publication Hachette Filipacchi Médias.

Readership

The readership in Sweden is so much so that the membership magazines such as Vår bostad recorded readership of over 300 000. PRO-pensionären, Kommunalarbetaren, Siftidningen and Dagens Arbete are among the other Swedish magazines that enjoy such a high readership.

Controversy

Even though the Swedish media is far away from the political inclinations, crime reporting in the nation has not been up to the mark in the recent past. In 2019, the mainstream media of Sweden was accused of not covering the Bombings in Sweden.

While the propelling industry knows no bounds, we at MediaBuzz are working hard to provide encyclopedic coverage of all the news sources. We are a team of professional writers with a knack for the trends in the world of journalism.
