History of Radio in Brazil

Brazil's radio history records start in April 1923. This year marks 100 years of radio in Brazil, and a century of history is bound to be quite fruitful. 

Exactly a hundred years ago, Brazil witnessed its first radio broadcast of the Radio Sociedade do Rio de Janeiro station. The station still broadcasts to this day, only now it goes by the name of Radio MEC. 

Within the same year, another radio station began its broadcast – this time, it was Radio Clube de Pernambuco. These two were the catalyst for a quick expansion of the Brazilian radio station landscape. For the next twenty years, the market grew to include thousands of stations dispersed across the country.

The first-ever national radio program in Brazil was called A Voz do Brazil (The Voice of Brazil) produced by Empresa Brasil de Comunicação. Empresa is the country’s public broadcaster. The first air was in July of 1935, and it still airs to this day – it is the oldest radio program in the country! With a runtime of 60 minutes, A Voz do Brazil is an informative program with a series of famous presenters.

Radio + TV Brazil

The 1950s were definitely the most important decade for Brazilian radios. It is then that so many new radio station transmissions began, alongside TV transmissions from São Paolo and Rio de Janeiro. The first one was Radio Tupi in 1948, which was quickly followed by TV Tupi in São Paolo two years later. In fact, the TV Tupi Channel 3 was the first TV broadcast in Brazil ever, and Latin America in general. TV Tupi started broadcasts in Rio the year after that, with TV Paulista and TV Record joining with their own transmissions in São Paolo in the next few years.

Satellite broadcast began in 1965, which was followed by the broadcast of TV Globo in Rio de Janeiro. However, digital transmissions, the ones we are using still to this day, began in 2007.

Over the years, the interest, participation, and tastes in Brazilian radio stations have grossly changed. However, one thing always remained true – Brazilians love variety. That is why online radio stations in Brazil offer one of the biggest selections of radio stations that encompass a wide array of music genres and radio formats.
