XHYW-FM is a radio station on 98.9 FM in San Pedro Nohpat, Yucatán. It is owned by Grupo Rivas and carries a grupera format known as Mexicanísima.

History[edit]

Amira del Pilar Romero Iriondo obtained the concession for XEYW-AM 1270, located in Uman, Yucatán, on November 6, 1978. The 2.5 kW station was sold to Tropiradio in 1983. Tropiradio moved it to Mérida on 760 kHz. XEYW authorized to move to FM in 2011.

Until 2016, it carried the grupera format from Grupo Siete (La Jefa and later La Única). In early 2016, when this was renamed Bengala, XHYW broke off.

As part of its 2017 concession renewal, XHYW-FM was slated to move to 98.9 MHz, in order to clear 106-108 MHz as much as possible for community and indigenous radio stations.[3] The frequency change took place in February 2018.
