This article is about a music radio format. For a per-region overview of music in Mexico, see Regional styles of Mexican music.

Regional Mexican is a radio format for music radio, typically defined to include Banda, Ranchera, Mariachi, Grupero, Conjunto, Tejano and Norteña.[1] It is the most popular radio format targeting Hispanic Americans in the United States.[2]

The large number of immigrants from Northern Mexico can lead to an emphasis upon Norteña on Regional Mexican radio stations,[1] though markets with larger Hispanic audiences can have multiple Regional Mexican stations, with variations in which region from which the music is taken.

Related formats[edit]

Univision Radio owns Regional Mexican stations; it also has stations with other formats targeting a Hispanic audience, including Romántica and Balada (combining Romántica and Balada), International Pop Hits, Top 40, Tejano, and Tropical (featuring genres such as Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia and Reggaeton).[1]

Festival RegiMex is a festival that will be launched in 2012 to celebrate the Regional Mexican Music genre of music.
