XEQ-AM is a Mexican class A clear-channel station on 940 kHz in Mexico City.[1] The concession is held by Cadena Radiodifusora Mexicana, S.A. de C.V.[1] and operated by Televisa Radio.[3][4] XEQ-AM broadcasts from a transmitter located at Los Reyes Acaquilpan and carries a tropical variation of Televisa Radio's Ke Buena grupera format, also heard on XEQ-FM 92.9.

History[edit]

XEQ began operations in 1938. It was owned by Emilio Azcárraga Vidaurreta doing business as Radio Panamericana, S.A., and was an affiliate of the CBS Radio Network as part of the "Chain of the Americas".[5] It was Azcárraga's second station after XEW-AM. By the 1960s, XEQ was operating with 150,000 watts during the day and 50,000 at night.

The XEQ calls later appeared on other stations: XEQ-FM was licensed in the 1950s, and the original XEQ-TV, broadcasting to Puebla, signed on in 1952 to relay XEW-TV. (In 1985, a callsign swap led to a different XEQ-TV in Mexico City.)

In 2014 and 2015, XEQ was approved to lower its power from 50,000 to 30,000 watts.
