History[edit] Radio Bremen

Germany
by the Allied powers. Although located in an enclave entirely surrounded by the British Zone of occupation, the city of Bremen
Bremen
belonged, together with Bremerhaven, to the American Zone, and radio broadcasting was therefore overseen by the American command. In 1949 Radio Bremen
Bremen
was chartered to be the public-law broadcaster serving the city-state Free Hanseatic City of Bremen
Bremen
and became a founding member of ARD in 1950. Organization and finances[edit] Chairmen of Radio Bremen[edit]
