Hans Hogendoorn

Since the very first broadcast, on January 5, 1976, Hans Hogendoorn has been the voice of the tune of NOS With an Eye on Tomorrow. After almost 17,000 broadcasts, NOS decided to look for a new voice with an audience competition. “It is better to look for a successor now and not wait until the moment when I can no longer do this.”

Since the competition began, an overwhelming 7,183 people have recorded their voices in the dedicated online recording studio. In order to be able to listen to and properly assess all entries, the promotion was shortened early.
