Señal Radio Colombia is a Colombian state-owned radio network, formerly known as Radiodifusora Nacional de Colombia and Radio Nacional de Colombia. It is part of Señal Colombia Sistema de Medios Públicos.

The Radiodifusora Nacional de Colombia started broadcasts 1 February 1940,[1] three years after HJN, the first state-owned radio station in the country, folded.

Between 1954 and 1963, the Radiodifusora Nacional was in charge of Televisora Nacional, the then only television channel in Colombia.

As of 2014, the network broadcasts news information from state and institutional agencies, in addition to a Colombian cultural sphere called "Colombiología". Its slogan is "Colombiología al aire" ("Colombiology on air").

Operating on both the AM and FM bands, it covers the 32 departmental capitals, including Bogota and some medium-sized municipalities.
