Telejornal is a news program aired each day at 20:00 on the Portuguese public television channel RTP1, the flagship channel of Rádio e Televisão de Portugal (RTP). The first show aired in 1959 and has kept its name since. The title translates as tele-journal. The term 'Telejornal' in Portugal has become synonymous with television news. The show is one of the most viewed in the country and the oldest long-running of Portuguese television.

Telejornal also simulcasts on other RTP channels such as RTP Internacional, RTP África, RTP Açores, RTP Madeira and RTP Play.

On 2 March 2009, RTP launched the video-on-demand service "O Meu Telejornal" through its website. Now, viewers can make their own newscast along with the news reports they want to see in the website anytime.

On 14 January 2012, RTP decided to reduce the runtime of Telejornal to 45 minutes, in order to have a similar runtime and format of its European counterparts.

On 31 August 2014, Telejornal broadcast without permission almost 3 minutes of the Lisbon derby match whose rights were owned by Benfica TV.[1][2]
