Economy and business: Stjärne will take up the position on 1 January next year, writes SVT in a press release on Wednesday.

– I am grateful to have been able to lead SVT in these special years. It has been challenging, fantastic and I have enjoyed every single working day, says Stjärne in the press release.

Stjärne has been SVT’s chief executive since 2015. Before this, she was head of Sweden’s Radio P1 and editor-in-chief of Upsala Nya Tidning.
