L’avventura di Radio Maria e iniziata nel Gennaio 1987, quando si e costituita l’Associazione Radio Maria, la qualerilevava l’omonima radio di dimensione parrocchiale. Era allora il tempo in cui in Italia le parrocchie, le diocesi e i gruppi religiosi facevano a gara occupare l’etere libero dalle frequenze. Quel fervore di iniziative ha ottenuto risultati positivi, tanto che ora sono oltre trecento le radio di proprieta ecclesiale in Italia, unite fra loro dal progetto culturale della Conferenza episcopale.
