Owned by Talpa Holding, Sky Radio is a Dutch commercial radio station playing non-stop Adult Contemporary-pop music. As it is programmed according to the AC format, the station focuses on men and women between 25 and 54 years of age. It is not only DJ-free but the music is only interrupted to broadcast news, weather, advertisements and traffic reports. On September 30, 1988, Sky Radio launched in the Netherlands and it was founded by Veronica DJ's Lex Harding and Ton Lathouwers. As that time, commercial radio broadcasting in the Netherlands was not permitted; the station was available only via cable. Sky Radio and Radio 538 fell to the wayside, and initially, Sky Radio failed to be awarded a license when in 1994 the terrestrial frequencies were divided again and awarded to commercial radio stations. They were both assigned a frequency after both stations had protested against this. Since 2012, Philip Alberdingk Thijm has been CEO of Sky Radio Group and the program director of Sky Radio is Uunco Cerfontaine who previously was the program director of Radio 538. Apart from these, the voice-overs of the station belong to Kas van Iersel and Marlayne Sahupala. Although Sky Radio had its own news service from 1992 until early 2013, it disappeared due to budget cuts.
