RTV Westerwolde is the local broadcaster for the municipalities of Westerwolde (formerly Vlagtwedde and Bellingwedde ) and Pekela . On March 27, 1993, Radio Westerwolde became the local broadcaster for the municipality of Vlagtwedde. A few years later, the transmission and service area would be expanded with the municipalities of Bellingwedde and Pekela. Nowadays Radio Westerwolde serves as a regional broadcaster an area with approximately 40,000 inhabitants.

In 1988 a start was made with the foundation of the later broadcaster Radio Westerwolde. A board was formed, consultations were held with the municipality of Vlagtwedde, a start-up subsidy was requested from the same municipality, a foundation was set up and suitable accommodation was sought. Five years later, a room in the De Bolderbörg nursing home in Vlagtwedde was converted into a studio. The first official broadcast of Radio Westerwolde could be heard from there on Saturday 27 March 1993.

After Radio Westerwolde had sufficiently established itself in the region, the neighboring municipality of Bellingwedde was contacted in 1996. That municipality was not yet equipped with a local broadcaster. The media commissariat did not object to the expansion of the area. In the same period Omroep Pekela stopped and together with B&W of the municipality of Pekela, the permit for the municipality of Pekela was acquired. The number of volunteers increased over the years from 30 to 100. Necessary to be able to serve the relatively large area. Additional channels were installed in Oude Pekela and Bellingwolde. In 1999 the broadcaster moved to a new location in the middle of Vlagtwedde.
