The Bulletin: Brussels' radio in English, 24 hours a day
Welcome to The Bulletin's 24/7 pop-up online radio station for Belgium's international community.
The Bulletin Radio is part of our ongoing mission to inform, engage and be closer to our audience. With many social and leisure activities cancelled and remote working still the norm, it’s never been more important to feel like part of a community.
