XEQ-AM is a Mexican clear-channel station on 940 kHz and licensed for Mexico City.[1] It is licensed to Cadena Radiodifusora Mexicana, S.A. de C.V.[1] and operated by Radiópilis, a company owned by Televisa Radio and PRISA's Unión Radio.[2][3]

XEQ-AM is licensed domestically in Mexico for 50,000 watts day and night,[1] but is listed as a foreign station in the U.S. FCC databases as 150,000 watts during the daytime and in the Mexico City borough of Iztapalapa.[4]

In the early 1940s, XEQ was owned by Emilio Azcárraga Vidaurreta and was an affiliate of the CBS Radio Network as part of the "Chain of the Americas".[5] Azcárraga's broadcasting empire is now known as Televisa.
