Giel Beelen departs after almost twenty years at 3FM

Giel Beelen (40) resigns from radio station 3FM radio and BNN-VARA. That makes the NPO Wednesday known. The presenter was almost twenty years in broadcasting in the service. His contract is terminated.

“Giel is all those years of been invaluable for 3FM, radio and discovering new talent. He has a lot of radio inspired. We are going to miss him at 3FM”, says Jurre Bosman, director of NPO Radio in a press release.

“For the things that Giel wants to do and wants to make up for his feeling is no space on 3FM more”, let BNN-VARA know. “Giel has ten balls simultaneously in the air, but now takes a moment to look at what he wants. How, what, and where, he knows at the moment not yet. He will later further announcements about to do.”

What is the next challenge of Beelen will be, is not yet known.

Giel in the morning

Beelen took on 11 november 2016, all leave of his ochtendshow, that he was twelve years presented.

“I have this date about half a year ago just called: 11/11 I found nice sound, and it had to be more than for Serious Request,” he explained at the time. “Now it is so far. I am ready for the future. But I know that I my life’s work (…) greatly going to miss.”

The last weeks of Beelens ochtendshow were not silently pass. The presenter came negative in the news because of a racist joke, THINK about it-politica Sylvana Simons. His apologies for the joke – in which he is after a fragment with apengeluiden ‘quiet Sylvana’ said – were not in good earth.

Also here he looked honest back. “It was a kutopmerking from the hand ran,” said Beelen. On the other hand, fits this controversy in his way of radio, he finds himself. “I have twelve years have played with fire. It is logical that you also sometimes get burned.”

Haarlem

Beelen started his radio career at the local radio station Haarlem105, where he presented a children’s program. He then worked as a sound engineer at Radio 10, and Radio North sea. In 1997 he made the transition to the current NPO 3FM. His first program was overnight to hear at the AVRO.

In 2001 worked Beelen during the day as a presenter for the KRO, that year, he was also dismissed by the broadcaster after he stated that the book Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler “the most impressive book that he knew” had called.

His next radiowerk was again at night for the VARA, but also there was the dj controversial. After the attacks of september 11, 2001, he called listeners to meelbrieven to send it to the KRO. The VARA then decided to Beelen to dismiss, but in 2002, I again asked back on the radio.
