GroupAccount image

Radio Netherlands Worldwide, the Dutch International Service, is one of the world’s leading public service broadcasters with a long history of providing listeners with high quality news and in-depth cultural programming. The first transmissions were in 1947 and today Radio Netherlands' team of more than 300 producers, editors, and reporters offer content in ten languages -- Dutch, English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Indonesian, Arabic, Chinese, Papiamento (Dutch Antilles) and Sarnami (Surinam) -- which are distributed on shortwave, the Internet and via a network of 6000 partner stations and organizations around the globe. Radio Netherlands reaches some 50 million listeners a week. A growing number of public radio stations in the United States turn to Radio Netherlands for global perspectives and music programming: "The State We're In"; "Earth Beat"; "Live! at the Concertgebouw"; "European Jazz Stage"; and more. Unfortunately budget cuts in 2012 will result in the discontinuation of all Music Productions.
