XEQ-AM, also known as Bésame (English: Kiss Me), is a Mexican clear-channel station on 940 kHz and licensed for Mexico City. It is licensed to Cadena Radiodifusora Mexicana, S.A. de C.V. and operated by Radiópilis, a company owned by Televisa Radio and PRISA's Unión Radio.
XEQ-AM is licensed domestically in Mexico for 50,000 watts day and night, but is listed as a foreign station in the U.S. FCC databases as 150,000 watts during the daytime and in the Mexico City borough of Iztapalapa.
In the early 1940s, XEQ was owned by Emilio Azcárraga Vidaurreta and was an affiliate of the CBS Radio Network as part of the "Chain of the Americas". Azcárraga's broadcasting empire is now known as Televisa.
