The network broadcast mainly independently-made music covering many genres, mostly rock, electronica, and metal, with some hip hop and reggae. It also promotes and broadcasts many Colombian artists.

In 2005, Bogotá's 99.1 FM would become Radiónica, during that year's Rock al Parque festival in Bogotá. It was known as Señal Radiónica between 2013 and 2015.

Radiónica added its first station outside Bogotá in 2006, with HJXP 99.5 MHz in San Andrés Islas. Later it would expand to Cartagena, Cali and Medellín (2007), and other cities in 2009.

FrequenciesEdit

Radiónica is also available as an audio virtual subchannel on areas with digital terrestrial television coverage at virtual channel 16.4.
