Hilversum Media Park (between 1989 and 2013, called Hilversum Noord, until 1989, called Hilversum NOS) is a railway station in the town of Hilversum, Netherlands. Opened on 25 September 1974,[citation needed] Hilversum Media Park is located on the Amsterdam–Zutphen railway - also called the Gooilijn - north of the town centre, serving Media Park, where most Dutch television and radio broadcasters are located. The station has two platforms, which are connected through a covered footbridge. Before 1989, the station was named Hilversum NOS: a reference to the public broadcaster Nederlandse Omroep Stichting (more commonly referred to as NOS).
