The show premiered on 21 April 1971, almost two years after the premiere of Jornal Nacional, and replaced Show da Cidade (The City Show). Initially it was only shown in the state of the Rio de Janeiro and was then presented by Léo Batista and Luiz Jatobá.

The original idea was for a women's daily magazine, with reports on art, shows and interviews. On 3 June 1974, it began to be broadcast nationally. It was divided in sections and, with the same scenery, it had hosts in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Brasilia.

The final segment brought local news from affiliated broadcasting stations, such as the TV Ribeirão (now EPTV); the local news was shown after Globo Esporte since the 1980s, with the exception in São Paulo from 1990 to 1996, when they aired São Paulo Já in the Jornal Hoje timeslot. SPTV now airs at its original timeslot at 12:00 p.m. local time since 1996.

On August 8, 2019, it was announced that Sandra Annenberg would present Globo Reporter and that Maria Júlia Coutinho would definitely take over the newscast from the end of September of the same year.[1]
