The Radio Netherlands Worldwide (RNW) will end its Indonesian and English broadcast services on June 29 with a-three-hour live broadcast from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The RNW official website announced on Thursday that the measures were a result of steep budget cuts imposed by the Dutch government and a concomitant change in focus

Once RNW’s English web stream ends on June 29 there will be no more daily reviews of the Dutch papers, coverage of Dutch news stories and listening guides, the website announced.

On 29 June RNW will broadcast a radio show looking back at the past decades of the station. Have you got a memory to share? Please let them know, at letters@rnw.nl. They would love to hear from you, according to the announcement at the website.
