Cia Berg (born 2 December 1963), now known as Cia Soro, is a Swedish television presenter and singer. She was at one time the lead singer of the Swedish rock band Whale, whose single “Hobo Humpin’ Slobo Babe” dominated MTV on Alternative Nation when VJ Kennedy was hosting it.

During the first part of the 1980s, she presented the television programme Bagen, which showed music videos. In the 1990s, she became a presenter for Swedish music television channel ZTV.

Between 1983 and 1984, she was a member of the musical group Ubangi, together with artists such as Thomas ‘Orup’ Eriksson. The group released a number of singles, and its collected works were later released as a CD entitled Oh No, I’m Pregnant. Also in the 1980s, she recorded a duet with Alexander Bard, Johnny Johnny, as part of his Barbie project.

From 1995 to 1999, Berg was a member of Whale together with Henrik Schyffert and Gordon Cyrus, and it was with Whale that Berg gained some recognition.
