Organizações Globo (English: Globo Organization) is the largest mass media group of Latin America, founded in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1925 by Irineu Marinho. It also owns companies on the food industry and the real estate and financial markets.
The first enterprise of the company was the newspaper A Noite, founded by Irineu Marinho. With the success of the newspaper, published on the late afternoon, he decided to launch the morning daily O Globo in 1925. After the sudden death of his father, just weeks after the launch of O Globo, Roberto Marinho became the director of the company. Working actively on the media business, Roberto decided to invest in other areas and launched Radio Globo on 1944. However, the company only became recognizable nationwide after the launching of Rede Globo, the second-largest commercial TV network in the world, in 1965.
Today the company is run by Roberto Irineu Marinho, João Roberto Marinho, and José Roberto Marinho. In May 2013, a study released by media agency ZenithOptimedia showed Globo occupied the 17th place in a list with the top global media owners. It was the first time the company appeared on this ranking.
