Karpolla on asiaa was a popular Finnish television show with a journalistic touch. It was hosted by reporter Hannu Karpo and produced by his Pallosalama OY production company. The show ran from 1981 to 2007 on MTV3. The show also featured occasional appearances by Karpo's son, Sampo. The show's essential idea was that Karpo would report on the various things he saw wrong about Finnish society and have "the people's story heard" by reporting how certain people in Finnish society were suffering from public oversight and abuse, and were unable to do anything to resolve their predicament. Karpo would famously and openly award his interviewees with piece of smoked reindeer or an encased 100 mk bill for speaking out. A popular contest on the show was the recurring "Santa Claus of the Year"-contest during which a famous Finnish person posing as Santa Claus was interviewed by either Karpo or a small child, dropping hints as to the Santa's true identity with the Santa revealing his identity soon before or after Christmas Eve. The contest was not held in 2004 due to the show being on hiatus and instead a different contest was held in November.
