Public broadcaster cancels weekly summary Nuntii Latini as original presenters retire
Finlands public broadcaster Yle has ended its weekly Latin language news bulletin, after three decades on the air, the broadcaster announced.
Since its debut in 1989, Nuntii Latini has offered a five-minute summary of the weeks national and foreign news in the classical language.
In later years the show was also made available online, garnering it around 40,000 listeners around the world, including some from the Vatican.
The last bulletin was broadcast on June 14, and detailed the agreement between the US and Mexico on immigration, talks between the presidents of China and Russia and the end of the Latin programme, which post ferias aestivas non continuabuntur (will not resume after the summer holiday).
