Founded in 2004 by Monsignor Lelio José Mendes Ferreira, who died in June 2011, The Way Radio Fm Community radio stations are among the oldest in Brazil.
The first studio was in the tower of St. Francis Church, Santa Libânia in the neighborhood where he was pastor Monsignor Lelio. After much struggle and with the support of the community, the tireless Monsignor Lelio built a headquarters for the radio, on a plot of his own parish, in front of the San Francisco Church.
With the growth of the station in 2011 The Way Fm Radio once again changed his address and went to the center of Bragança Paulista. The new building, with two floors, has seven rooms plus a modern multimedia studio, reference among community radio stations in Brazil.
The inauguration of the new building was on October 21, 2011 and was attended by several dignitaries, including the then mayor of Bragança, John Alfonso Solis, the Mayor, John Carlos Carvalho and director of the Forum, dr. Laércio José Mendes Ferreira Filho, cousin Monsignor Lelio.
In recognition of the work of Monsignor Lelio, the new board, chaired by Dermeval Gonçalves, who is also Superintendent of Rede Record, honored the founder giving the new studio called "STUDIO Monsignor Lelio MENDES JOSE FERREIRA". The founder also became the Honorary President of The Way Radio Fm.
In 2012, in another bold move, the Fm Radio The Way held the first debate between candidates for mayor of Bragança, entering the political history of the city. Without political connections, religious prejudice, sexual and racial, Fm Radio The Way won the respect and affection of listeners not only of Braganza, but also from other cities in Brazil and the world, who hear the site.
The Way Fm, Radio fastest growing in the audience!
