All VRT Radio Stations Go Digital
The Belgian public broadcaster has begun simulcasting its complete line up on DAB+
On Oct. 17 at 2 p.m. CET all of the Belgian public
Dutch-language broadcaster VRT’s radio channels began broadcasting via DAB+.
VRT is now simulcasting its stations Radio 1, Radio 2,
Klara, Studio Brussel and MNM on FM and DAB+, while it is also making available
its online radio selections, which include MNM Hits, Klara Continuo and VRT
NWS, on DAB+.
Radio 2 sees the digital move as bringing an added
advantage — it means all its regional
content is now available to the entire area of Flanders. Previously, via the
FM-only broadcasts, each of the station’s five regional broadcasts (Antwerp,
Limburg, East Flanders, West Flanders and Flemish Brabant) aired dedicated regional
information and news only on their respective FM frequencies.
VRT has confirmed its commitment to FM broadcasts
pending a general digital switchover, as specified in the agreement concluded
between the broadcaster and the Flemish Government.
