You may have noticed already: after the introduction of the Dutchnews.nl headlines we have also introduced the Radio 4 Brainport weather report for the Eindhoven region. It is compiled every hour just before the top of the hour and broadcast just after the news, so you get a fresh weather outlook which is as up-to-date as it can get, just like our traffic reports. At the moment it is mainly reporting rain, but hopefully you’ll notice very soon it also includes e.g. warnings if the sun is too bright to stay in it unprotected. ?
This is one of the new ideas we had to enhance the programming, and we have a few more coming… but if you feel you know how we could improve our service further, please email us with your idea; email@example.com.
Eindhoven, 2019-12-03 – Today Dutchnews.nl and Radio 4 Brainport expanded their cooperation with the introduction of hourly headline news bulletins, which can be heard at about 30 minutes past the hour.
