XHLAC-FM is a radio station in Lázaro Cárdenas, Michoacán. Broadcasting on 107.9 FM, XHLAC-FM is owned by the Instituto Mexicano de la Radio and broadcasts a music and information format under the name "Radio Azul".

History[edit]

XELAC-AM 1560 signed on in 1976 under the management of Sicartsa, a massive, then-state-owned iron and steel mill which brought many jobs to Lázaro Cárdenas, and with them the need for a radio station. The concession for XELAC was owned by another state enterprise, Promotora Radiofónica del Balsas, S.A de C.V. In 1983, this company was included among the first assets of IMER—its first radio station outside of Mexico City.[2] By 1984, 80% of its program output was music, with the balance in news and sports programming.

In 2013, XHLAC-FM 107.9 was signed on as part of the AM-FM migration campaign currently underway among Mexican radio stations. XHLAC-FM broadcasts in HD Radio.
