On April 11, 1969 the then Manila Archbishop Rufino Cardinal Santos, D.D., with the presence of Antonio Cardinal Samore, inaugurated the studios of Radio Veritas located in Fairview, Quezon City.
In 1986, it was through Radio Veritas where Manila Archbishop Jaime Cardinal Sin made the call to the people to converge in EDSA to prevent the bloodshed, and ushered in the four-day bloodless revolution known as EDSA 1 People Power Revolution.

That same year, Radio Veritas received the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Journalism, Literature, and Creative Communication Arts. The Ramon Magsaysay Award Board of Trustees recognized Radio Veritas’ crucial role in using the truth to depose an oppressive and corrupt regime and restore the Filipino faith in the electoral process.

In 1991, Radio Veritas846 aired independently from Radio Veritas Asia. It was transformed into a commercial station and changed its call sign to DZNN. It was in 1997 that it went back to its previous call sign DZRV. It was also during this period that the station transferred its studio to several locations until it was able to settle to its present studio in West Avenue corner EDSA in Quezon City.

Currently, Radio Veritas 846 is going beyond radio through its website, and its social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) Veritasph. It is also to extending its reach to television through its partnership with TV Maria.

Meanwhile, Radio Veritas Asia digitalized its production facilities paving the way to shift some of the languages, where it is politically stable, to their language areas. Furthermore, this development ushered the possibility for most programs to be produced in the native areas and sent to RVA studios through Internet.
