History

In 2001, Joe's predecessor 4fm was launched. Together with Q-music, it was the first commercial radio station to be licensed as a national broadcaster in the Flemish Community. The station was purchased by Talpa Media in 2005. In May 2007, 4fm was taken over by DPG Media - then known as the Vlaamse Media Maatschappij. In 2008, 4fm started broadcasting a news-focused breakfast show named 4fm actueel that was simulcast on KANAALTWEE, owned by former Joe owner, Medialaan.[1] It was axed a few months later.

On 19 February 2009, the hosts of 4fm announced that the station would relaunch as Joe FM on 1 April 2009. The station's format largely stayed the same. On Saturdays and Sundays, a show called Joekes broadcast excerpts of standup sets and comedy skits. In August 2012, Joe FM changed its slogan to Your Greatest Hits and implemented several new programmes.
