(Vandaag precies 93 jaar geleden op 15 november 1924 wordt de NCRV opgericht door enkele dominees die geïnspireerd zijn door de radio-uitzendingen van Johannes de Heer. Die heeft begin 1924 een avond zendtijd op de Hilversumse NSF gehuurd. De NSF zendt in die tijd de programma’s van de HDO uit. Ook verhuurt de NSF zendtijd. Op Kerstavond 1924 is de eerste NCRV-uitzending via de NSF.)
