Rádio Comercial is a commercial radio station in Portugal aimed at young people and adults. It has a broad format including contemporary, pop and rock music. It is among the most listened to radio stations in the country.

History[edit]

Rádio Comercial was born on March 12, 1979, as a subsidiary of Rádiodifusão Portuguesa. The name was chosen because it was the only RDP station to allow adverts at the time. However, the station can trace its roots to Rádio Clube Português (RCP), a very important and influential station founded in 1930. RCP existed until 1975, when it was nationalized as part of the Carnation revolution. Then, the channel was swallowed into RDP, and was later privatized in 1993 to the Correio da Manhã newspaper, and later sold to Media Capital and PRISA. From that time, Comercial became a rock station (Rádio Rock), until the 2000s.
