radio museum

Empresa Brasil de Comunicação ( EBC ) will also be present at the event. In a special space that simulates an old radio studio, the Museu da Rádio Nacional - which can usually be seen in the company's corridors - invites visitors to discover an analog radio frequency wave station.

The stage for several innovations from the last century, such as soap operas and newsletters, the museum brings equipment and information from a time when television and the internet were not even considered, and the only means of communication - radio - instigated the listeners' imagination.

In contrast to the historical pieces, the EBC features a modern broadcast studio similar to the one used in the daily newsletter A Voz do Brasil , where visitors can watch explanations from technicians and operators on the entire process of putting up the oldest newsletter of Latin America on the air daily.

EBC President Glen Valente stated that the company's participation in the National Science and Technology Week "is very important to show factual journalism, with coverage and live broadcasts. "In addition, we will take a little of the history of communication public with pieces from our collection," he added.
