It started broadcasting in the 1950s as a relay of XEW-AM 900 kHz in Mexico City, remaining so until the late 1980s when changes to the format occurred. Later the station became Ke Buena, broadcasting from San Luis Potosí to the entire Mexican Republic, being the most powerful station in Mexico with 250 kW of power. Currently the station is again a relay of XEX-FM with the moniker of "Los 40 Principales".
