In just a few days, the Nordljud News team will meet for a long weekend in 🇸🇪 Gothenburg!

Are you in Gothenburg from the 11-13 November and would like to join us? Make sure you scroll all the way down and fill in the form!

It has been over three years now since the first joint board meeting between Studentradion i Sverige and Studentradioen i Norge. This was the start of what then became Nordljud, The Nordic Studentradio network.

The News Team is the baby within the bigger project, as it´s only a few months old.

We first started developing the news concept a year ago, when we met in 🇳🇴 Bergen. This was also the first time we got to see many of our stations’ representatives in real life.

Broadcasting from Studentradioen i Bergen

In Bergen we brainstormed on how the Nordic Studentradio News concept should take shape.

At the beginning of 2023 we kicked off the work with a fantastic course by Sveriges Radio P3 and NRK P3 during which we got to learn from the pros how radio news is made in an engaging way.

Shortly after we started producing our own news, in our first episode one of our reporters interviewiewd the Prime Minsiter of Norway!

Since then we worked on improving the format, both when it comes to sound but also in regards to our website and social media.

In just a few days, from the 11th to the 13th of November 2023, the Nordljud News Team will gather in Gothenburg for a long weekend of activities including team-building, talking about improvements and producing radio together.

It’s especially a time for us to return to the drawing board. What works well? What can be improved? How can we make our Nordic Studentradio News more interesting and relevant for our audience? Thanks to these questions we aim to continue developing Nordljud News, that to date is one of the few (or possibly the only) newsrooms that produces a Nordic-level news broadcast.

We would not have got this far if it wasn’t for all the studentradio members from the different stations who worked hard in building the project from scratch and dedicating time and passion into developing the collaboration.

Particular thanks to Nordic Culture Point for supporting us from the very start and providing the financial means for running the project and covering the costs of when we meet in person.

Nordljud is on a mission to find out what life is like for internationals who choose to study in Scandinavia, in particular in Copenhagen, Gothenburg and Oslo.

We will be publishing the results on Nordljud News and making a longer podcast reportage and share our findings, later this year.

This is a collaborative project together with Spionen, Gothenburg’s Student newspaper, Radio Nova – Oslo’s Studentradio and Globalnyt, an online magazine in Denmark.

Are you an international student in one of these three cities or do you know anyone that is? Then please help us by sharing the link to this post – it would help us a lot!

Thank you very much

Nordljud Talk is back, with Hilde Sandvik

Scandinavian journalist Hilde Sandvik will be our guest speaker at the upcoming Nordljud Talk!

>>> Zoom link: https://gu-se.zoom.us/j/61007539824 <<<

Yes, it’s been a while since our last Nordljud Talk so it’s about time to open the doors of our digital meeting room to start talking again about Nordics and the media. And what better way to start off the new year than with an experienced journalist that works in Scandinavian?

Hilde Sandvik, is a Norwegian journalist based in Bergen, with many years of experience and a strong passion for the Nordic project. For over two years she has been running a collaborative show on Scandinavian public service radios.

Speaking a common ‘Scandinavian language’, a mixture of Norwegian, Swedish and Danish, is something Hilde believes in a lot and does both professionally and privately.

In October, during the Nordljud Weekend in Bergen, part of the team caught up with Hilde and spoke about Scandinavian identity, how to surpass the difficulties in understanding each other and the way many Scandinavians tend to switch into English, for simplicity.

Eva, Alex and Eden from the Nordljud team met Hilde Sandvik in Bergen (2022).

The Nordljud Talk will take place digitally on the 6th of February 2023 and is open to all Student Radio members in the Nordic countries plus staff students & alumni of JMG, Gothenburg university.

>>> Zoom link: https://gu-se.zoom.us/j/61007539824 <<<

Hilde Sandvik, is the mastermind and Norwegian radio host of the only radio show in ‘Scandinavian language’, broadcast on Norwegian, Swedish and Danish public service radios. Have a listen to Norsken, svenken og dansken here.
