TV Gazeta was founded in 1970 in São Paulo. It is part of Cásper Líbero Foundation. It was one of first Brazilian TV stations to broadcast in color in 1970, together with Rede Record, Rede Bandeirantes, Rede Globo, Rede Tupi and TV Cultura. In 1993 it merged with CNT (Central Nacional de Televisão, National Central Television), and its São Paulo local station became known CNT/Gazeta. In 2000 the partnership ended, and TV Gazeta turned into Rede Gazeta (Portuguese for Gazeta Network).
