History

Studio Brussel started on 1 April 1983 as a regional Brussels radio station of the then-BRT. 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 first two presenters were Paul De Wyngaert and Jan Hautekiet. The radio station plays mostly alternative and more heavy music, mostly rock, but also metal, hiphop, house and techno.

At the end of 2002, Studio Brussel 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 Brussel for Qmusic. Peter Van de Veire left Studio Brussel for the new radio station MNM in 2008.

Since 2007, Jan Van Biesen is the net manager of Studio Brussel. He was preceded by Isabelle Baele (2005–2007), Mark Coenen (2002–2005), Jan Hautekiet (1998–2002) and Jan Schoukens (1983–1998).

Studio Brussel has a market share of 9.8% in Flanders. It is also the most popular foreign radio station in the Netherlands.

On the 4th February 2019, Studio Brussel introduced a new logo for the first time since 2002. It was designed by Base Design[1] and the new "digital-first" inspired logo uses a custom font as well as an unlimited range of colours.

Timeless 100

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 until 2012, Nirvana was at number 1 with "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Thereafter, Led Zeppelin (Stairway to heaven), and Pearl Jam (Black) took the top-position.
