Yle Radio Suomi was established in June 1990 – as part of Yle's restructuring of its radio channels – to be a national network bringing together the country's 20 regional stations. In 2003 the channel's music policy was shifted with the aim of attracting a younger audience.[1] Yle Radio Suomi has consistently been Finland's most listened-to radio station, with a 44% overall audience share in 1999[2] and a 33% overall share (higher among older listeners) in 2013–2014.[3]
