Videolina is a regional television broadcaster in Sardinia that broadcasts from the city of Cagliari .

Videolina was founded by Nicola Grauso and Michele Rossetti on 4 September 1975 in a small apartment in vico Duomo in Cagliari , where on 16 June of the same year they had already given life to the first free radio in Sardinia , Radiolina , despite the intimations from the Escopost , the radioelectric emission control department that depended on the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications. The names "Radiolina" and "Videolina" indicated the small size of the two stations, given the scarcity of the means at their disposal. The broadcaster initially broadcast in black and white, switching to the PAL color system a few months later. The first programs aired were films made by Paolo Romani's Tv Libera Livorno. The official inauguration took place on September 6 with a series of western- inspired cartoons drawn by Bruno Bozzetto . On 3 July 1976, the news program, TGS - Sardinian Telegiornale , was launched , directed by Patrizio Mulas, whose editions at that time, not yet having the possibility of broadcasting live, were always pre-recorded. The schedule consisted mainly of films, cartoons, information, sports and local folklore. The first conductors were Michele Rossetti, Francesco Atzeni, Giancarlo Testa and Giampaolo Loddo. The flagship program was Super Arsenic. To take care of the sport were Franco Congiu, Sandro Angioni and Cesare Corda.

After a first move to via Martini, in 1979 the broadcaster moved to the new and larger headquarters in viale Marconi, also in Cagliari. Here there were many self-produced programs, first of all Sardegna Canta , which during the winter period offered live performances by various folk groups, singers, poets and characters from Sardinia. From 1983 3 editions of the TGS were proposed .

The two radio and TV stations gave the entrepreneurs a substantial economic return deriving from advertising sales, which at the beginning was carried out in a rudimentary way. This allowed them to strengthen their position in Sardinian publishing, by purchasing L'Unione Sarda in 1985 , the best-selling newspaper in Sardinia. The publishers refused from the beginning as well as later to join the nascent national circuits, preferring a regional type programming.

In the early nineties the Cagliari football team returned to Serie A and, consequently, the channel dedicated various programs to it, which had a notable response from the public.
Around 1998, the broadcaster became part of the Team Tv circuit, the first Italian all news TV broadcaster, part of the Stream TV satellite platform , of which it transmitted the Stream News interconnection at 14:55 (the collaboration will end in 2003 , when Stream TV merged into Sky Italia ).

On 1 January 2000 the TGS , after 24 years, became TG Videolina and increased the editions of the newspaper with the addition of the night edition and flash editions, even if the latter were canceled after a short time.
