Ric Oliveira

A combination of unique life experiences, curious mind, blue collar roots, cynical wit and a face for radio coagulate to deliver a view of modern life that has made him can't miss radio for news junkies everywhere. And let's just say he knows how to accentuate headlines with 250 pound gorrilla like punchlines.

Oliveira, a son of Azorean immigrants, born in Taunton, MA, cut his teeth in the world of media while a student at Umass Amherst in 1987 working for the Daily Collegian and later as a disc jockey at WOZQ, Smith College, North Hampton, MA.

In 1990, his path turned to the unusual when he signed up for a college internship to teach at the Mohawk Survival School. A month after accepting the position, the Mohawks went to war with Canada after the natives objected to an effort to take contested Mohawk land for a 18 hole golf course. The Oka Crisis as it would be called found Ric being the only American journalist allowed to live in the reservation. He would lose most of his hair after witnessing the battle of Tekawitha Island when Mohawks repelled an advancing Army platoon which, despite firing 32 canisters of tear gas and being heavily armed, could not stop the unarmed Mohawk movement.

Upon returning to Umass he was named an editor at the Daily Collegian and given his own news radio show on WMUA. After college, he returned to his hometown of Taunton where he began working for the Taunton Daily Gazette where his reporting led to the removal of both the Conservation Commissioner and the Health Inspector. His tenure in Taunton was short-lived however, as he was hired by the Fall River Herald News where he was employed for two years. In 1993, he joined the staff of the New Bedford Standard Times where he won numerous AP and New England Press Association Awards. In 1997, his investigative work, which included the Aids on the Waterfront Series and a series on retroactive deportation earned him widespread acclaim among journalists. In the summer of 1997, he was hired by two time Emmy award winner Curt Worden to work on an international news report which aired on Nightline in November of 1997.

He also returned to radio, this time on WSAR during the late edition news segments.

In 1999, Ric, left the daily news business to take over a struggling ethnic newspaper called the O Jornal. Within two years, it became the first Portuguese newspaper in America to win a NEPA award and one of only handful of multilingual papers to win any American English newspaper contests. In 2000, he was given a half hour weekly news segment which, over the years, grew to a weekly one hour and then two hour show. In 2003, he openly questioned the logic for war in Iraq, coverage by the national media and whether any of the claims of weapons of mass destruction or ties to extremists were accurate or even vetted. While it was a controversial stance at the time and callers accused him of being a conspiracy theorist, he remained true to his questions. After a caller said his statements made him the most dangerous show on the radio, a legend was born.
In 2008, he was given the chance to take over the 9 to 10 a.m. morning slot on WSAR where he continues to deliver underreported news with a twist and perception only Ric can offer.

Oliveira joined WSAR full -time in April of 2013 taking over the reigns as the General Manager.

SHP Financial

For over a decade, SHP Financial has helped the people of New England live more secure, comfortable lives by providing safer, more secure retirement plans — built on the foundation of reliable and predictable income — to help them achieve financial security and independence.

Established in 2003, the Principals of SHP Financial joined together to offer planning advice and concepts devoted to the conservation of assets and lifetime income. Interestingly enough, the past 10 years have consisted of many unexpected results in the financial arena, and a severe market correction in 2008. SHP Financial’s methods and strategies helped clients create a clear and predictable plan for their retirement and allowed for desired growth to ensure future income. As a result, clients have seen firsthand just how vital it is to be guarded from the unexpected.

SHP Financial is committed to the financial independence and well-being of each and every client they serve by putting their clients’ interests above all else. Their mission is to thoroughly understand clients goals and dreams, leveraging their knowledge and experience to help clients realize them. As conventional methods often prove insufficient to accomplish all of their clients’ desired goals, SHP Financial uses both traditional and alternative investment strategies to produce very successful results — just another reason why their family of clients continually refer them as their friends and colleagues.

In the New England area, SHP Financial has formed a well-respected media presence through weekly radio shows heard on multiple stations devoted to sound retirement planning advice. SHP Financial has been featured in over 390 publications nationwide in the last year including Yahoo Finance, Reuters, The Street, CNBC, The Boston Business Journal, The Boston Globe, Newsweek, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and many more. SHP Financial has also been seen on NBC, FOX, ABC, NECN, WBIN and CBS affiliates around the country.

Matthew G. Schondek

President & CEO
Fall River Municipal Credit Union

Matthew was born and raised in Taunton and a resident of Raynham. Graduate of Northeastern University. Over 25 years of experience in financial institution management.



The story of FRMCU started with a Fall River firefighter, a state appointed finance board, and the impending threat of wholesale cuts in the pay of city employees.

The Credit Union's founding points to a Fall River firefighter who attempted, without success, to obtain a loan from a local institution. As the father of nine children, his financial resources had been drained and he was in dire straits. It was at this point that two fellow firefighters told him about a credit union that had been established in Springfield, Massachusetts.

The late Louis Shea, a son of a founder, recalled the beginning as related by his father. "They began by using an old cigar box as a cash drawer and a locker at the Pocasset Fire Station became the first vault," Shea explained.

The capitalized fund amounted to the grand total of $600. This was created by the purchase of five-dollar shares by each of the founding fathers. Originally, the concept was to restrict savings to $25 per month for each member. The original officers of the Credit Union were resourceful and creative.

The late Raymond Pettine, an attorney and counsel for the Credit Union and brother of a founder, recalls the credit union officers buying 100 tons of coal in the off season and selling it to members at a lower cost than the winter market price. Not only did the members save money on the purchase of fuel; the officers of the Credit Union had a truck and delivered the coal.

The early heritage of service to its members characterizes Fall River Municipal Credit Union today. In the beginning, the men who ran the credit union knew their members. There was a high level of trust and commitment to their members and things are very much the same today. A member's value is based on their character and is treated fairly. It was typical of the spirit demonstrated by the original founders and it is this spirit that continues to thrive today.

Although originally established as a credit union restricted only to municipal employees, the credit union now enjoys an expanded charter. Membership is open to virtually anyone living or working in the Bristol County area.

Fall River Municipal Credit Union, under the leadership of the Board of Directors and the President and Chief Executive Officer, continues the spirit of its founders because it strives to help its members and the community by remaining focused on them.
