Eesti Päevaleht

The newspaper arose in 1995 from a merger between the newspapers Hommikuleht, Päevaleht (formerly Noorte Hääl) and Rahva Hääl. The newspaper Eesti Sõnumid also joined the merger in the same year. The economic crisis and the structural crisis affecting the print media has led to a considerable drop in readers since 2008, but the paper continues to be Estonia's third most popular daily.
