Sports broadcasts on Portuguese radio  Commentaries, interviews and reporting were the genres used in the press and the radio for a long time. Live sports transmission was a special genre much favoured by radio, with commentaries by announcers and specialists.  In Portugal, the main sports events were soccer (football), cycling, and roller hockey, the first two in terms of national competition and the last in international competitions. Rogério Santos (Catholic University of Portugal) 1

Sports broadcasts on Portuguese radio  It would be after the launching of Emissora Nacional [the public broadcasting service] in 1935 and the 1938/1939 national soccer championship that the radio became more enthusiastic about sports. Rogério Santos (Catholic University of Portugal) 2

Sports broadcasts on Portuguese radio  At that time, it was usual to give a summary of the first part and a full commentary of the second part of the game.  Clubs were afraid that commentaries from stadium would mean losing fans due to those commentaries.  The first official match totally transmitted took place on January 1938. Rogério Santos (Catholic University of Portugal) 3

Sports broadcasts on Portuguese radio  It was a time when announcers and technicians commentated close to the sideline and exposed to the wind and the cold or hot weather.  In the photograph above, we can see Alfredo Quádrio Raposo, at the beginning of 1943. He was sitting on an uncomfortable chair commentating a soccer match, with a ribbon microphone, allowing him his hands free, with no headphones, reading from a notebook. At his side, the sound operator, with headphones, controlled a portable technical suitcase. Rogério Santos (Catholic University of Portugal) 4

Sports broadcasts on Portuguese radio  Sports made the radio very valuable as a medium of proximity. Sports and radio produced popular heroes who became national symbols, based on a mixture of narratives of pedagogy and expansion of sucess.  In Portugal, roller hockey, cycling, and soccer increased the number of supporters thanks to the radio. However, boxing, bullfighting and motor racing transmissions had a shorter radio life and handball, basketball or tennis were never successful through radio. Rogério Santos (Catholic University of Portugal) 5
