Back in 2004 it was the content of Radio Bulgaria programs that provided the basis of the very first website of the Bulgarian National Radio. The website was highly appreciated by juries including foreign experts and won a few professional prizes. Upon the 2012 termination of shortwave transmissions in English, German, Russian, French, Spanish, Serbian, Greek, Albanian, Turkish and Bulgarian the audio content of Radio Bulgaria continued its dissemination exclusively on the internet (with the exception of Turkish broadcasts that were preserved for the Turkish minority in this country only). Since then and to the present day, this media outlet has been managed incompetently and short-sightedly and instead of developing its impressive potential, several directors have worked to close it down. Furthermore, in a complete oversight given the importance of keeping an open communication with the communities in the Middle East, and despite the protests of journalists, the Arabic section was finally shut down in 2016. From 1 June 2017 based on a proposal of the Director General Alexander Velev and the respective resolution of the BNR Managing Board the online audio content of the multilingual outlet was terminated. With this Radio Bulgaria has ceased to be a radio and thus risks losing not only its audience but its profile as well.
