According to the newspaper, Brüggenwirth disagrees about the policy to be pursued with owner John de Mol of Talpa. The results of the radio group are under pressure for some time. Fourteen jobs will be canceled due to the shrinking advertising market. Florent Luyckx (director of content) and Jan-Willem Borsboom (director of digital) are also leaving.

Last week it was announced that Smit would leave Microsoft as the Consumer Market Director. Smit has no radio background. For Microsoft she worked for Starcom MediaVest Group.
