Resumo

Exposure to radon gas is the first cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, and Galicia is the most affected region in Spain. The main objective of this research is to know the relevance of radon gas in the news agenda of the digital media outlets in Galicia, analyzing its evolution in recent decades and the characteristics of the news coverage. Also to identify the most relevant actors in the news, observing the role of public administrations and political actors in the communication of the radon risk. A content analysis of the news about radon (n=271) published in the digital editions of La Voz de Galicia, Galicia Confidencial, La Región and Faro de Vigo was carried out. The results reveal an increasing coverage of radon during the period analyzed (2002-2022). The news items address measurements and risks of gas exposure in homes and workplaces, health research and regulatory initiatives. Local government and public administrations share prominence as actors together with research institutions, with no clear dominance of the first on the public agenda on radon.
