Vlaams-Brusselse Media, branded as BRUZZ is a media company which serves the Flemish Community in Brussels. Its counterpart to the French-speaking Community in Brussels is BX1. It is headquartered at Radio House in Ixelles.


1970–2014: Pre-merger era

BRUZZ's origins can be traced to the monthly local newspaper Deze Maand in Brussel, which was founded in the 1970s by the Nederlandse Commissie voor de Cultuur van de Brusselse Agglomeratieraad with the aim of creating a Dutch-language newspaper for the residents of the Brussels Agglomeration. In 1985 it was renamed Deze Week in Brussel.

On September 15, 1993, the television channel TV Brussel was launched from the Royal Flemish Theatre.

Deze Week in Brussel was renamed again in 1998 to Brussel Deze Week with Dirk Volckaerts as editor-in-chief.

In 2002 a trilingual cultural supplement was added to Brussel Deze Week: first Agenda and later Agenda Magazine.

In 2000, FM BSSL was launched as a student radio affiliated with the RITCS. On December 19, 2003, the station was licensed for 9 years. In May 2004 it changed its name to FM Brussel.

In 2004, Brussel Deze Week went online with the news site, which also included pieces of TV Brussel and FM Brussels. In 2008 Anne Brumagne became editor in chief and the newspaper was renamed BDW.[1]

2014–present: Post-merger era

On March 10, 2014, the organizations behind, TV Brussel, FM Brussel, Agenda and BDW merged to form Vlaams-Brusselse Media based in the historic Radio House in Ixelles, producing web, radio and television content.[2][3] On October 13, 2015, the Board of Directors of Vlaams-Brusselse Media announced a reorganization following a turbulent period after the previous CEO announced a round of resignations and the closure of FM Brussels.[4]

On 20 April 2016, TV Brussel, FM Brussel, Agenda and BDW ceased to exist to form the cross-media brand BRUZZ with one single editorial staff.[5][6][7]

In 2018 Vlaams-Brusselse Media launced BRUZZ Ket in collaboration with Onderwijscentrum Brussel (OCB). The digital children's and youth platform aims at Dutch-speaking and multilingual Brussels young people aged 9 to 13.

On April 19, 2022, Vlaams-Brusselse Media launched BRUZZ ICE a digital radio station[8]
