GrootNieuwsRadio stops its programmes for financial reasons

GrootNieuwsRadio, the Dutch Christian station broadcasting on 1008 kHz, stopped its regular programmes at 1100 UTC today due to financial problems. A press release on the station’s website says that non-stop music will be broadcast for the next few days, and it will then go silent unless new financial support is found.
Director Evert ten Ham describes the decision as a very painful one, as the number of donors and the amount of advertising income are actually on the increase. But the station is still in serious financial difficulties. Its operating costs are around one million euro a year. One of the major donors, a printing company, says that it can no longer afford to subsidise the station as it needs to protect its own business.
GrootNieuwsRadio began broadcasting a year ago, and claims a weekly audience reach of 100,000.
