After the summer, Radio 538 will change the morning program again. The current presenters, Wietze de Jager and Klaas van der Eerden, stop their morning show on the commercial radio station after 1.5 years.

According to De Jager, it is too difficult to combine work with his family life. That is why he makes way for Tim Klijn, who will replace him at 538 after the summer. De Jager has two sons and a daughter; he recently announced on the radio station that he and his girlfriend are expecting a fourth child.


De Jager and Van der Eerden started their morning program on 538 in 2022. But more than a year after the start, De Jager says that he cannot spend enough time with his family as a result. “Making a daily program in the early morning and everything that comes with it requires 24/7 attention. Continuously finding the right balance with family life is something I have shared with the listeners more often.”

In the end, the channel and the two DJs decided to stop the morning program earlier than planned. After the summer, Tim Klijn, Rick Romijn, Niels van Baarlen and newsreader Florentien van der Meulen will succeed the duo on Radio 538. They can now all be heard on Radio Veronica in the morning, but previously worked for 538.

Wietze de Jager and Klaas van der Eerden will also continue to be heard on Radio 538, but at a different time. The channel is still thinking about which place they will take in the programming.
