Christer Björkman returns as contest producer in Eurovision 2019

Returning to the core team

Christer Björkman will return as the contest producer in Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv. This was confirmed in an interview with Sveriges Radio.

Christer Björkman started as a show producer in 2013, when contest was held in Malmö. He returned to the core team in 2016, when the contest was in Stockholm. Then he was the producer of the contest.

He returned as the show producer in 2017, after the executive producers and the other members of the core organisation team resigned. Last year in Lisbon, he was again the contest producer.

Christer has been the producer of Sweden’s Melodifestivalen since 2002. He has said he will step down from the role in 2021.

Long before he started as the producer of Melodifestivalen, he took part in Eurovision himself. In 1992, he competed with “I morgon är en annan dag” but finished second-to-last with 9 points.

I started watching Eurovision back in 2006, when I was only 10 and couldn't stay up to see Lordi winning. I attended my first contest in 2013 in Malmö. I'm studying journalism and I love music — you will probably never see me without my headphones on.
