Meet the speaker – Merja Ylä-Anttila
The next EuroDIG 2023 confirmed keynote speaker we want to introduce to you is Merja Ylä-Anttila. She will hold her keynote on June 21.
Merja Ylä-Anttila is the CEO of the Finnish Broadcasting Company (YLE) since 1 September 2018. She has worked in the media sector for 30 years. Since 2001 she had worked for Finland’s largest commercial broadcaster MTV, part of Bonnier Broadcasting, currently owned by Telia.
“Yleisradio is a prime media outlet if you want to work for the good of Finnish society. I am happy, excited and very motivated to take on this task,” Ylä-Anttila said when she took the job at YLE, “I have a lot of experience in journalism, but also in media business management during times of transformation and transition.”
Ylä-Anttila advocates increased cooperation between the public broadcaster and its private counterparts. “Now that the media in Finland is in the midst of fierce international competition, cooperation between public broadcasting services and the commercial media is more important than ever. We need a highly functional domestic media that is equipped to provide Finnish residents with the best possible content,” she says.
