According to audience ratings, Educadora reaches an audience of nearly 65,000 people every day. The station's programming is a mix of news, talk shows, sports and musical programs. The station employs 50 professionals who work part or full time.

The new studios were built when the previous facilities became too unreliable and out of date. There are three studios in the facility: the control room, the talk studio and the newsroom.
