XHOPE-FM 89.7/XEOPE-AM 630 is a combo radio station in Mazatlán, Sinaloa. It carries the national Exa FM format from MVS Radio.

History[edit]

XEOPE received its first concession in March 1945. Then known as XETK-AM, it broadcast on 630 with 1000 watts day and 250 watts night.

In 1972, Oscar Pérez Escobosa bought XETK along with XESA-AM in Culiacán.[3] He already owned XERJ-AM in Mazatlán, which had begun operations in 1940, and he also founded XHMZ-TV channel 7. Pérez founded Grupo Promomedios, which continues to own the rechristened XEOPE/XHOPE (named in his honor) as well as the FM successors to those stations.
