Who is Jan Hautekiet?
Jan spent 40 years working for our public broadcaster. After learning the ropes of the radio trade at BRT 1, he helped to found Studio Brussel in 1983, where he became network manager in 1998. Four years later, he moved to Radio 1 in the same capacity, until he became strategic advisor for the broadcaster in 2007.
He presented a daily debate programme called Hautekiet from 2012 to 2018.
Jan regularly manages debates and moderates events in the cultural, social and scientific sectors. He also writes about communication, such as his Heerlijk Helder (delightfully clear) in 2015, which he wrote together with Ann De Craemer.
Jan Hautekiet is a pianist and keyboard player, and feels at home on the stage. He devises formats and also dares to improvise.
