Õhtuleht (Evening Paper) is the second largest daily newspaper in Estonia. It is a tabloid newspaper. The newspaper is published in Tallinn in the Estonian language.[1]

History and profile[edit]

Õhtuleht was established in 1944.[2] On 3 July 2000 two rival tabloid papers in Estonia, Õhtuleht and Sõnumileht (The Messenger), merged, becoming SL Õhtuleht.[3] Since 6 October 2008 the name was shortened back to Õhtuleht.[2]

The paper has a liberal-conservative political stance.[2] It is owned by Eesti Meedia which also owns Postimees and which in turn is owned by Schibsted,[4] a Norwegian media group, and by Ekspress Grupp.

Õhtuleht is available online at Ohtuleht.ee. Initially, at first the online version was just a copy of the paper, but now is turning into an online news stream and an entertainment centre with approx. 150,000 users.
