RNW to broadcast Dutch radio fundraiser for Haiti - 21-January-2010, 06:16

Thursday 21 January, a number of Dutch radio and TV stations will join together for a day of fundraising for the victims of the Haiti earthquake. The radio stations, including a number of the most popular commercial stations as well as public networks 3FM and Radio 2, will broadcast a joint programme between 0500 and 2000 UTC identifying as Radio 555. The giro number 555 is used in the Netherlands for donations to charities belonging to the coordinating organisation SHO.
The action is a repeat of one held in January 2005 following the tsunami in Asia. Six national Dutch radio stations - 3FM, Radio 2, Radio 538, Radio Veronica, Q-music and Slam!FM - will be carrying Radio 555.
RNW will also carry portions of the programme to Dutch expats on all the regularly scheduled frequencies beamed to Europe, and the programme in its entirety will be carried via the RNW1 Satellite/Internet streams. In addition, some frequencies will be on the air for extended hours:
5955 kHz at 0600-1800 UTC
9895 kHz at 0600-1700 UTC
1296 kHz mediumwave (via Orfordness, UK) at 0900-1700 UTC
The special website is now live. The playlist will reflect the music played on all the participating stations. News will be supplied by NOS, and read by newsreaders from the different stations. Reporters will be out and about giving live updates from different parts of the country. Stations not carrying the special programming will be supporting the fundraiser with specially recorded spots.
The line-up of presenters/reporters will be as follows:
0500-0700 UTC: Sander de Heer (Radio 2) and Menno de Boer (Slam!FM). Reporter: Gijs Staverman (Q-music)
0700-0900 UTC: Giel Beelen (3FM) and Edwin Evers (Radio 538). Reporter: Bert Kranenbarg (Radio 2)
0900-1100 UTC: Tim Klijn (Radio 538) and Jurjen Gofers (Slam!FM). Reporter: Jeroen Kijk in de Vegte (Q-music)
1100-1300 UTC: Erik de Zwart (Radio Veronica) and Ruud de Wild (Q-music). Reporter: Lex Gaarthuis (Slam!FM)
1300-1500 UTC: Coen Swijnenberg (3FM) and Frits Spits (Radio 2). Reporter: Marlous Loffelman (Veronica)
1500-1700 UTC: Rob van Someren (Radio Veronica) and Dennis Ruyer (Radio 538). Reporter: Michiel Veenstra (3FM)
1700-2000 UTC: Rob Stenders (3FM/Radio 2) and Jeroen van Inkel (Q-music). Reporter: Niek van der Bruggen (Radio 538)
Radio 555, which will be based in Studio 24 a short distance from the RNW building, will also be broadcast on the Nederland 1 TV channel from 0900-1400 UTC. In the evening, Nederland 1 and commercial channels RTL4, SBS6 and TMF will present a joint TV programme at 1930-2100 UTC. This will also be carried live around the world by the international Dutch channel BVN. At 2230 UTC there will be a wrap-up programme which will report how much has been raised from the day’s special events.
