Radio2 Benebene is now called VRT Radio Bene

VRT Radio bene

Since 2 July, VRT's digital theme channel Radio2 Benebene has a new name: VRT Radio Bene. The channel is thus completely dissociated from Radio2, as VRT had already done previously with Studio Brussel and De Tijdloze.

The channel's recipe remains the same. Under the motto 'De tijd van je leven' (The time of your life), VRT Radio Bene plays classics and lends the stage to the best local artists. For those familiar with the Dutch radio landscape: NPO Radio 5 style, with a hint of NPO SterrenNL.

VRT Radio Bene was launched in 2020 as a spin-off of the evening programme on Radio2. At first only on the web, then from October 2021 also on DAB+. Gradually, programmes with presenters have been introduced and the channel has become an alternative for those who have outgrown the rejuvenated Radio2 programme. The relaunch is now set to make it a station in its own right, alongside the likes of Joe Gold and Nostalgie+. The team of familiar presenters (including Cathérine Vandoorne, Peter Verhulst, Luc Appermont and Guy De Pré) has been beefed up with singers Barbara Dex and Belle Perez, and will be joined this summer by Kim Debrie, Benjamien Schollaert and Anja Daems.
