RTV80 All by the Coast

From Radio Noordzee via Radio & TV 80 to RTV80

On January 5, 1980, Adje Patatje and Peter van Holland, residents of Egmond, started the illegal radio station Radio Noordzee. After 14 years, they decided to quit and work toward legal status.

Therefore, on April 8, 1993, the Radio Egmond Foundation was established, with the goal of continuing to provide the people of Egmond with local news and programs in the future. On December 8, 1993, the foundation launched its first legal broadcasts under the name “Radio North Sea 80,” later changed to “Radio 80. In July 1998, the broadcaster also began providing Text TV.

Finally, anticipating the merger of the municipalities of Bergen, Egmond and Schoorl in 2001, RTV80 started in 1999 as a local broadcaster for the 3 municipalities.
