Likewise, it seeks to highlight values, cultural roots and richness of the Colombian pacific through chronicles, interviews and coverage programs. It also manages news segments and children programs.

In 1992, the Telepacífico signal ceases to be exclusive for Cali (Valle del Cauca’s capital) and it expands to the northern municipalities of Valle, Popayán (Cauca’s capital) and other surrounding municipalities.
Finally in 1999, the expansion of the signal is attained, covering 99% of Valle del Cauca territory, 80% of Cauca and Nariño departments territory, and 70% of Chocó territory.
