Radio Veronica is a Dutch commercial radio station of a joint venture between Talpa Holding (77.15 %) and Telegraaf Media Groep (22.85%). The station runs mainly music from the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s.

Radio Veronica in its present form was created on August 31, 2003 by a merger of the cable station Radio Veronica of the Vereniging Veronica and the golden oldie station Radio 103 of Sky Radio Ltd. In return, received the Vereniging Veronica 3.5% of the shares of the Sky Radio Ltd. in hands. In 2006, this interest was expanded to 10%, after the Telegraaf Media Groep NV and ING acquired the Sky Radio Group and those in Sienna Holding BV - operating under the name Sky Radio Group accommodated. In 2007, the Telegraaf Media Groep NV acquired 85% (now 22.85%) of the company owned and thus control over the company.


Uunco Cerfontaine was since 2003 the program director of the station. Early 2013 was Niels Hoogland appointed as program director. On November 4, 2013 the station was a new course. This meant the dismissal of Erwin Peters, Bart van Leeuwen, Luc van Rooij and Dennis Hoebee. The change did not achieve a higher market share. Between January 2013 and October 2014, the market share decreased by 2%. Also Rob van Someren was replaced in autumn 2014 by Jeroen van Inkel. Niels Hoogland was replaced on November 1, 2014 by Erik de Zwart.

Erik de Zwart presented on February 2, 2015 a new programming. In this new course old items, such as "De Stemband", "De plaat en zijn verhaal" and Veronica FM program "Rinkeldekinkel" returned. The design of the station appears again in the eighties, but adapted to the present time. Further De Zwart took the DJs Bart Van Leeuwen and Dennis Hoebee back.
