Correio Braziliense

The Correio Braziliense newspaper was founded on April 21st in 1960, along with Brasília itself. The date coincidence fulfilled a promise made by the founder of the Diários Associados ('Associated Diaries') Group, Assis Chateaubriand, to the president of the Republic, Juscelino Kubitschek, idealizer of the construction of the new federal capital. On the same day, another vehicle by the same group was started: TV Brasília.

This newspaper aimed to be a rereading of the homonym original, created in 1808 by Hipólito José da Costa in Londres and considered the first Brazilian newspaper. The original “Correio Braziliense” was published until 1822, the year of Brazil’s independence.

During the business’ golden age, under the lead of Assis Chateaubriand, the group Diários Associados gathered 36 newspapers, 18 magazines, 36 radios e 18 television stations. The Correio Braziliense newspaper, specifically, registered a rapid growth in circulation, following the growth of Brasília’s population: from 1,5 thousand copies in 1963, it reached 24,5 thousand, in 1969, and 53 thousand copies, in 2008. Within this period, more precisely in 2000, they launched the news portal CorreioWeb.

The inaugural issue of the modern Correio Braziliense consisted of 108 pages - a small demonstration of the economic power held by the Diários Associados Group at the time - most of them inserted in the section celebrating the inauguration of Brasília.

In 2016, the newspaper kept the average of 50 thousand copies, remaining among the 20 newspapers of largest circulation in Brazil in recent years.
