Antena 3 is one of the three national radio channels produced by the Portuguese public broadcasting entity Rádio e Televisão de Portugal, the others being Antena 1 and Antena 2.

The channel specializes in contemporary and alternative music, featuring live concerts, news and chart countdown programmes.


Inaugurated on 26 April 1994, Antena 3 is distinguished by its promotion of new Portuguese music. The station has discovered and promoted some of the most important contemporary Portuguese bands. Its slogan is A Primeira Vez é Sempre na 3 (First time every time on 3).

Over the years, Antena 3 has been controlled by Jorge Alexandre Lopes, Luís Montez, José Mariño, and (currently) Rui Pêgo.
