Jovem Pan was established in May 3, 1944 by Julio Cosi and Oduvaldo Viana as "Rádio Panamericana". During this period, Panamericana used several wordmarks in newspapers ads. Most common use of wordmark are in Erbar typeface or in various serifed font-families. The radio was purchased by Paulo Machado de Carvalho, owner of Emissoras Unidas, in 1945.
The radio was renominated as "Jovem Pan" in 1965. The new name are influenced by the Portuguese word "jovem" (in English, young), used by various nomenclatures, like as in "jovem guarda".
