XHCJE (Channel 11) is the Ciudad Juárez television station that is owned and operated by TV Azteca. XHCJE is an affiliate of Azteca 13.

XHCJE-TV, KTDO of Las Cruces and KTSM-TV of El Paso share resources especially with violence in Juarez.


The station signed on in 1980, initially as a satellite of XHDF-TV, at the time the flagship of Mexican public broadcaster Imevisión. Ricardo Salinas Pliego would acquire Imevisión in 1993, becoming TV Azteca, which gave way to the construction of the facilities of TV Azteca Ciudad Juarez, which opened on August 11, 1993.

In 2005, XHCJE-TV began broadcasting in HD.


Currently, XHCJE-TV broadcasts the entire schedule of Azteca 13, with local advertisements and local news opt-outs such as Hechos Meridiano Juárez ("Juarez Midday Facts"), a news program that debuted in 2000 to compete against "Noticiero 56 (now" Las Noticias")" of competing station XEPM-TV. Hechos Meridiano Juárez is broadcast weekdays from 3:30 pm to 4:00 pm, and is anchored by Ricardo Garcia and Gabriela Salazar. An evening newscast, Hechos Noche Juárez ("Juarez Night Facts") is broadcast weeknights at 10:00 p.m.-11:00 pm, anchored by Gabriela Aguilar and Luis Alfonso Higareda, with Pablo Latapi, Javier Alatorre. Local inserts are also broadcast during Azteca 13's morning program, Hechos AM.

XHCJE also broadcasts games of the Indios de Ciudad Juárez soccer club, broadcast on tape-delay Fridays at 11:45 pm.
