History

This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it. (February 2013)

In January 1992, RTL2 was created after a fusion of the stations Maxximum and Radio Métropolys, and afterwards RTL 2 was created, then named M40. The station was owned by Prisa (48.5% of the capital) and the RTL Group (with 35.75%).

In January 1995, M40 changed its name to RTL1 and later that year, after a complaint from Europe 1,[clarification needed] the station had to change its name again to finally become RTL2.
