XEX-AM (730 AM, TDW Radio) is a 100 kW all-sports radio station based in Mexico City, Mexico. The sports format started in 1999 as "Super Deportiva" on 1180 AM; later, it moved to 830 AM ("Estadio 830") and 590 AM ("Estadio 590"). In 2003 the format settled at XEX and was known as Estadio W until 2012 when it adopted the branding TDW.

During the 1940s, XEX was affiliated with the Mutual Radio Network as its Latin American flagship; its sister stations were also flagship stations of Latin American networks of competing radio networks, XEW-AM with NBC and XEQ-AM with CBS. XEX was also affiliated with ABC. All three have been owned by Televisa Radio for decades. Starting in the late 1950s, XEX-AM became a Top 40 radio station with the branding of Los 40 Principales; the CHR format and Los 40 Pricipales branding later moved to XEX-FM 101.7.
