Otto Lennart Hyland (24 September 1919 – 15 March 1993), was a Swedish TV-show host and journalist and one of the most popular and renowned TV personalities in the history of Swedish television. His biggest success as an entertainer was unquestionably the show Hylands hörna ("Hyland's corner"), that aired from 1962 on Sveriges Television.

Initially, it was a radio show at Sveriges Radio, but due to its success and popularity, the production was moved to Sveriges Television in 1962 where it aired until 1983. During its 21-year run, it became a veritable institution of Swedish popular entertainment.[1]
