XEPM received its concession in June 1960 and came on air sometime in the decade. The station was named by original concessionaire Sergio R. Molinar Fernández in honor of Pedro Meneses, the husband of Molinar's sister Beatriz. Meneses started XEJ-TV in 1951.
In 1972, XEPM was sold to Telesistema del Norte, S.A. Telesistema del Norte was a wholly owned subsidiary of Telesistema Mexicano, which within a year of buying XEPM changed its name to Televisa. Under Televisa it has relayed the Las Estrellas and Canal 5 networks, and from 2007 to 2015 it was Televisa's local station for Juárez. In 1994, Telesistema del Norte merged into Canales de Televisión Populares, another Televisa subsidiary.
In August 2015, XEPM and XHJCI swapped virtual channels and networks. XHJCI took on the virtual channel 2 and the local programming. XEPM's transmitter began carrying virtual channel 32 and Las Estrellas. XEPM returned to channel 2 in October 2016 when all transmitters of the Las Estrellas network moved to that virtual channel.
XEPM began broadcasting in digital on October 13, 2012. The station broadcasts on physical channel 29.
