Radio CBN consists of 4 stations (in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasília and Belo Horizonte) owned by the network and 24 affiliates in 15 states of Brasil, with focus on journalism (“all new" model). It was the first radio station with this model in the country.
CBN also has a portal linked to globo.com and some columnists’ blogs. It has around 100 commentators, addressing the following editorials: Behavior and Society; Culture; Economy; Education; Sports; Gastronomy and Leisure; Enviroment and Sustainability; Coorporate World; Politics; Health, Well-being and Science; Technology; Urbanism and Cities. Most of them are present in other outlets by the group, such as GloboNews and Rede Globo.
Its target audience are people from upper classes, and the regular program reflects that. The content of CBN gives a broad space to themes related to finances and company management and privileges the view of business people and investors in themes connected to economy and politics.
CBN Network has content partnerships with BBC Brasil, Radio France (RFI Português) and Rádio ONU (UN Radio).
