Palavras-chave:Brazilian public radio, public servisse, broadcasting, convergence
Clarify the concept of public radio and certain aspects that relate to the original conditions of such stations in Brazil is the main objective of this work. Therefore, structured in four sessions that dialogue and intertwine: the broadcasting and its mission in the public communication; What is a public radio?; Reflections on the genesis of Brazilian public radio; and considerations on the setting and contemporary challenges of public radio. Methodologically, is based on the structural-historical dialectic approach. In theory, is based on the legal provisions of the Brazilian Constitution, guiding documents of Unesco, studies of Brazilian and European researchers on the subject, as well as the notion of European public broadcasting service. In summary, this paper points out that the understanding of the genesis of public radio in the country valuably contributes to the understanding of the challenges that present themselves to such stations; and the contemporary technological scenario appears to be conducive to the reconfiguration of this service in the convergence environment.
