Owner VRT

Radio 2 is a Belgian radio channel operated by the Flemish public broadcaster Vlaamse Radio- en Televisieomroep (VRT).

In contrast to the more formal VRT Radio 1, Radio 2 features a more populist schedule aimed at a general family audience and is currently one of the most popular radio stations in Flanders.

Regional opt-outs

Radio 2 has five regional opt-out stations in the provinces of Antwerp, Flemish Brabant, East Flanders, West Flanders, and Limburg. Each of these stations produces seven regional news bulletins per day and dedicated programmes for its own province at breakfast time (Ochtendpost Mon–Fri), midday (Middagpost Mon–Fri) and drivetime (Avondpost Mon–Sat).
