Every day, the 35 media brands together reach more than eight in ten Flemish people.
More than 1,800 people work in the newly integrated media company. The main locations are Vilvoorde (TV & radio), Kobbegem (publishing), Hasselt (telecom) and Lokeren (EPC printing works). There are also small sites in Melle and Zonhoven for the online services.
