B5 aktuell launched on May 6, 1991 at 6:00am and took over the additional frequency of BR4, over which until then the evening ARD-Gastarbeitersendungen broadcasts, as well as some special parliamentary debates or other events were adopted. Model was the French news channel France Info of Radio France. Later, other stations in Germany took over the concept of B5 aktuell, such as MDR Info (1992), Inforadio from RBB (1995), NDR Info (1998), hr-info (2004), SWRinfo (2012) and DRS 4 News in Switzerland (2007). As one of the first ARD radio stations on the Internet B5 has been online since November 1995. On September 8, 2011 B5 was recently awarded the German Radio Prize in the 'Best News Format' category.

The current RDS PTY code for B5 is 02 ('Current Affairs') because the vast majority of the broadcasting time are backgrounds, debates, analyzes, and the like.
