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, in reference to Televisa's sports cable channel TDN.
XEX-AM came to air in 1947 as a 500 kW national radio station. The Mexican government built XEX with the transmitter equipment of the former XERA at Villa Acuña, Coahuila, whose 500 kW transmitter was seized, dismantled and shipped to Mexico City, and obtained the callsign from a Monterrey station, which was reassigned the XEAW-AM calls.
During the 1940s, XEX was affiliated with the Mutual Radio Network as its Latin American flagship. In 1951, it was sold to Rómulo O'Farrill after four years of losses. 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.
After airing a multitude of formats throughout its existence, in 2003 it became a sports radio outlet.
