In this paper, the authors investigate the design and implementation of a news-sorting algorithm at the Swedish public service radio broadcaster Sveriges Radio. Theoretically, the paper draws on valuation studies (Helgesson & Muniesa, 2013), an interdisciplinary field which approaches values as practices or performances, in order to discern how different values play a part in the construction and use of the algorithm. The study builds on empirical data collected through observations and interviews conducted at Sveriges Radio.
