As the television broadcast makes the change from a five- to a seven-day per week format, the five-minute news in English shifted from the previous 11:05 am time slot to a new afternoon broadcast time of 3:05 pm.

The online Yle news service will continue publishing up-to-date domestic news on the yle.fi/news pages.

In addition, Yle News will continue to broadcast daily English-language updates on the FM airwaves on Yle Mondo and Yle Radio 1.

All TV and radio broadcasts can also be accessed from Yle’s online service, Areena.

Erkki Liikanen, Bank of Finland governor and member of the governing council of the European Central Bank since 2004, attempted to calm the waters on Tuesday, saying the ECB has all the necessary tools to address the situation should Sunday’s vote produce a negative result.
