Introducing... The Bulletin radio. Your new English-speaking service, 24 hours a day

00:11 01/11/2020
Looking for radio in English in Belgium? The Bulletin is here for you

The Bulletin is delighted to announce the launch of a pop-up online radio station for Belgium's international community.

Alongside our new digital magazine and our move to central Brussels, 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. Many of us are facing an unprecedented winter, unable to travel or visit friends and family during the holiday season. 

We've been broadcasting in English on Bruzz every Sunday since 2016. Now we feel it's time to provide a 24-hour service, at least until Belgium's coronavirus measures are eased in the spring.

As well as the latest news and practical information from The Bulletin editorial team, you'll hear in-depth reports and interviews, and information about clubs, associations and charitable initiatives that can provide support and assistance. Scroll down to see the full programme schedule.

This is a work-in-progress and we'd love your feedback. Send us a message any time. If you are involved with a community initiative that we should be mentioning, please get in touch.
