Organizações Globo (English: Globo Organization) is the largest media conglomerate of Latin America[1], founded in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 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. With the success of the newspaper, published on the late afternoon, he decided to launch the morning daily O Globo on 1925. After the sudden death of Irineu just weeks after the launch of O Globo, his son Roberto Marinho became the director of the company. Working actively on the media business, Roberto decided to invest in other areas and launched Rádio Globo on 1944. However, the company only became recognizable nationwide after the launching of Rede Globo, the world's fourth largest TV network, on 1965. Today the company is run by Roberto Irineu Marinho, João Roberto Marinho, and José Roberto Marinho, the three sons of Roberto.
