Radio Noord-Holland began broadcasting on January 1, 1989. At first three hours a day, but eventually became 24 hours a day.

Canal), with the exception of Zaanstreek/Purmerend).
Since January 3, 2000, the station also carries out television broadcasts. Two editions were also worked on there for some time: one for the Greater Amsterdam region, Zaanstad and Purmerend, and one for the rest of the province. However, due to the high degree of fragmentation in the operation of the cable network and the advent of digital television, it proved difficult to ensure that the broadcasts of the edition ended up in the correct place, so this edition has been discontinued.
Until August 2014, the broadcaster also provided teletext pages in addition to radio and television broadcasts. In addition to the latest news, the website also contains program information. Radio and television can also be heard and watched over the Internet.
Since February 2011, news and shows can also be viewed via a free downloadable app.
