Wilbert Mutsaers became 3FM’s station manager in 2009. Before his job at 3FM, he was working for Universal Music for eight years. Wilbert is a true music freak.

3FM Serious Request is a cooperation between 3FM and th Red Cross to raise money and awareness for a silent emergency. In the week before Christmas three 3FM DJs join for six days in a glass studio somewhere on a square in a Dutch city. They don’t eat and make 24-hour live radio and television and can be followed online. The public may request songs for a fee and can raise money for the silent emergency by implementing their own campaigns. In 2013, 3FM’s Serious Request has raised €12.302.747 for the combat against diarrhea.
