O Heraldo is a daily newspaper in the Indian state of Goa.[1]

History[edit]

O Heraldo was established as the first daily Portuguese newspaper on 22 January 1900 by Prof. António Messias Gomes and Luís de Menezes Bragança in Goa.[2] After a ten-year spell in Lisbon, Messias Gomes undertook major expansions and modernisation's of the paper's operations in 1919.[3] It was later transformed into an English daily in 1983,[4] by which time it was 'the longest-running Portuguese-language newspaper outside of Portugal and Brazil'.[5]

The newspaper presently has 2 supplements - its daily four-pager Herald Café that is out on all days of the week except Monday and its weekly four-pager Herald Review, that accompanies the paper on Sunday.
