The NPO Radio 1 program announced the shortlist in Friday evening’s broadcast. There are a total of eleven names on the list.

The NOS program is looking for a new voice for the introductory text of the program because voice-over Hans Hogendoorn is quitting after almost half a century. More than 7,000 people had registered to succeed him.

The winner will be announced on February 10 in a special broadcast from Amsterdam. The jury consists of presenter from With an eye to tomorrow and the NOS News Rob Trip, News & Copresenter Fleur Wallenburg, DJ and voice actor Fernando Halman and deputy editor-in-chief of NOS News Bart Leferink.

Trip said in the broadcast of ‘Het Oog’ on Friday that the jury had difficulty arriving at the eleven names. Partly because initially not all jury members were on the same page. ‘We definitely did not have the same lists, but we did have some overlaps. And after deliberation, this list of eleven ultimately emerged,” said jury chairman Trip.

The full shortlist of the contenders (in alphabetical order): Joshua Albano (actor), Jacqueline Blom (actress), Esther Floor (singer), Hanneke de Jonge (journalist and voice-over), Helga Kok (educational coach and voice-over) , Thekla Reuten (actress), Gijs Scholten van Aschat (actor), Annet van Wiechen (archaeologist and publicist), Joost van Wijk (voice-over), Gerja Wolf (presenter, singer and voice-over), Eva Zwaving (singer and voiceover).

All candidates on the list have registered voluntarily, none of the participants have been asked to participate, NOS said. All entries were listened to anonymously by the jury.
