XHNZ-FM, also known as "La Zeta 107.5", is a Regional Mexican radio station licensed to Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico and is owned by Grupo Radio México. While its transmitter is based in Mexico, XHNZ, like most other Mexican-based stations serving the area, has a studio and sales office based in El Paso, Texas, in the United States.
In 2010, XHNZ was sued by announcer Michael Buffer for using his trademark catchphrase "Let's Get Ready to Rumble" without permission for $175,000(USD). Buffer found out that XHNZ had used his catchphrase 42 times between February and March 2010 through the station being a monitored reporter in Billboard's Regional Mexican Airplay panel via BDS. After the radio station failed to respond to the lawsuit and a summons issued the following April, Buffer's El Paso lawyer Mark Walker obtained a default judgment. On July 6, District Judge David Briones ordered the radio station to pay $4,166.67 for each of the 42 unauthorized uses of the trademark alleged by Buffer, as well as legal fees, according to court documents.
