Niilo Tarvajärvi (1914-2002) was a Finnish radio and TV reporter. Aamukahvi (”Morning Coffee”), a popular programme broadcasted every Sunday morning, always ended with Tarvajärvi’s words "up and out for a jog". Tarvajärvi was the first to suggest the commercial utilization of Korvatunturi as the land of Santa Claus.
