Krång Anna Carolina Norén (born 29 January 1965) is a Swedish radio presenter for Sveriges Radio and television presenter.[1] She has been the host of the music chart show Svensktoppen since 2007 and also commentates on Sveriges Radio's broadcasts of Melodifestivalen and the annual Eurovision Song Contest.[2] She took the first steps to a radio career when she participated as an interviewer at the legendary Radio SBC in the Stockholm community radio in 1980-82. She also made some appearances at Stockholm University's student radio station, which eventually led her to being employed by Radio Stockholm through Sveriges Radio between 1989 and 1997.[3]

In 1998, she moved to P4 Riks in an attempt to make the radio channel more youth-oriented. She presented, among other, the entertainment show Curry-Curry which was broadcast on Friday nights.[4][5]

Since 1999, Norén has been Sveriges Radio's commentator and host for Melodifestivalen and the Eurovision Song Contests broadcasts.[6] 2004 through 2006, Norén hosted the nostalgia program 64-93 at Sveriges Radio P4. She has also done portrait shows with guests such as Erland Josephson, Lena Nyman and Jan Guillou.[7] In 2006 she was also host and producer for the series Let the Music Play, that played mostly disco and soul songs.[8]

In August 2007, she succeeded Annika Jankell as took the host of Svensktoppen from Annika Jankell.[9] On 2 November 2014 Norén revealed that she had been the driving force to change the rules for the songs appearing on Svensktoppen, namely having the voting public deciding via a vote if a song should be able to stay on the chart longer than a year.[10]

Norén currently hosts Knattetimmen on Sveriges Radio P4.[11] In 1992, she hosted the first season of the series Här är ditt kylskåp ("Here is your refrigerator"), which was broadcast on SVT.[12]

Norén lives in Herräng outside of Norrtälje.[13]
