About Roberto Marinho
Roberto Pisani Marinho (December 3, 1904 – August 6, 2003). Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Marinho was the president and founder* of the biggest Brazilian TV channel, Globo. He came under criticism in the documentary Beyond Citizen Kane for his role at Globo. * Roberto’s father, Irineu Marinho, was the actual founder, however he died one month after starting the newspaper. At a young age, Roberto inherited O Globo (then just a newspaper), founded by his father on July 29th, 1925. Soon, Roberto branched out into a chain of radio stations such as Rádio Globo and Rádio CBN which consisted of news broadcasts only. On April 26th, 1965, thanks to the Military Regime, he founded Rede Globo TV, which became the principal TV station in Brazil and the third largest in the world. Rede Globo has had large developments during and directly after the Military Dictatorship. With the production of novelas (soap-operas), TV Globo found a way to flex its true power and has since exported many to various countries. These days, Globo’s reach is incalculable and has immense social and political influence (on par with Italy’s Fininvest, now Mediaset, run by Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi).
