Cofina concentrates the editorial direction of Correio da Manhã/CMTV and Sábado in the hands of Carlos Rodrigues – Meios & Publicidade

Five months after extinguishing the editorial general management created in 2017, following the departure of Octávio Ribeiro from the group, Cofina is back with a similar structure, although now focused on just three brands: Correio da Manhã, CMTV and Sábado. Carlos Rodrigues, who took over the editorial direction of the generalist daily and the group’s information channel last June, becomes editorial director-general from next Monday, November 15th, also accumulating responsibilities for the newsmagazine Saturday . The new structure, the group clarifies in a statement, will be in charge of “the coordination and management of all the editorial activity of the three brands”.

“The creation of this editorial directorate is the result of the continuous and high demand that the group has placed in matters related to research processes”, justifies Cofina, also explaining that “the way in which this rigorous and independent model of scrutinizing society It emphasizes, more and more, the DNA of the brands Correio da Manhã, CMTV and Sábado, it is a strong stimulus for us to continue building models that guarantee the solidity of processes, uniformity in approaches and integrated forms of sharing”.

The previous editorial directorate headed by Octávio Ribeiro, it should be remembered, concentrated editorial responsibilities on all Cofina titles. Unlike the structure now presented, which is restricted to three brands, the former directorate-general also covered titles such as Jornal de Negócios, Record, Máxima and Flash. This department, which also had Armando Esteves Pereira and Alfredo Leite as assistants, would eventually be extinguished last June with the departure of the founder of CMTV, a decision justified by Cofina with the intention of “streamlining its organizational structure”.

“Given the context that the media are going through, Cofina will have editorial managers for brands, television and Correio da Manhã on the one hand, and the other titles on the other. In the company’s view, this reorganization optimizes its television segment, having added the main title of the group, and on the other hand reinforces the identity of the other media segments, without, however, failing to obtain group synergies”, the group then maintained. in a statement.
