Studio Brussel

Studio Brussel (StuBru) is a radio station in Belgium, owned by the VRT. The music played is considered more alternative than the other big radio stations, and is aimed mainly at a youth audience. It started on 1 April 1983 as a regional Brussels radio station of the then-BRT. Some programs are broadcast during the rush hour. The channel is an initiative of the Flemish government and is financed principally by taxes.

Studio Brussels started on 1 April 1983 as a regional Brussels radiostation of the then BRT. There were some emissions during the rush hour. The first two presenters were Paul De Wyngaert and Jan Hautekiet. Gradually the hours in which Studio Brussels broadcast were extended and the radio station could be listened to throughout Flanders. The radio station plays mostly alternative and more heavy music which is not or hardly played on commercial radio stations, mostly rock, but also metal, hiphop, house and techno. It gives the opportunity to alternative music to be broadcast and is not into populism.

At the end of 2002 Studio Brussels got a new look. The logo with the "wild" characters was replaced by a red ellipse with the name Studio Brussel in it.

On 24 April 2006 Wim Oosterlinck left Studio Brussels. This caused some changes: firstly Roos Van acker returned shortly, but finally Tomas De Soete did the emissions at evening. The morning programs were presented by Peter Van de Veire.

From September 2008 on Tomas De Soete presented the morning programs, because Peter Van de Veire left Studio Brussels for the new radio station MNM. The programs in the afternoon are presented by Siska Schoeters.

According to Wave 19 of CIM Studio Brussel has a marketshare of 10.44% and an average reach of 10.09%. Stubru is the most popular foreign radio station in the Netherlands.

In July 2010 the 20th Wave of the CIM was introduced. The Marketshare of StuBru (9.8%) stayed the same since the last Wave.

Studio Brussel started on 1 April 1983. It began as a regional radio station broadcasting only during rush hour. Gradually, broadcasting times were expanded and Studio Brussel could be heard throughout all of Flanders. The station played more alternative music and more heavy music (i.e. rock, hiphop, house and techno), which was not broadcast by commercial radio stations. Every year, there is a chart called the Tijdloze 100 (timeless 100), with 100 timeless tracks. It consists of 100 'timeless tracks'. In 2003, 2004 and 2005 the Belgian band Gorki was at the first place with Mia. In 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, Nirvana was at number 1 with "Smells Like Teen Spirit".

Famous quotes containing the word studio:

    The studio has become the crucible where human genius at the apogee of its development brings back to question not only that which is, but creates anew a fantastic and conventional nature which our weak minds, impotent to harmonize it with existing things, adopt by preference, because the miserable work is our own.
    Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863)
