XEC-AM is a radio station in Tijuana, broadcasting on 1310 AM. It carries a news/talk format.

History[edit]

XEC's original concession was awarded to Luis E. Enciso in 1934. The Enciso family would own the station for 84 years until its sale in 2018 to Jaime Bonilla's PSN.[3] The sale allowed Radio Enciso, which was financially strapped at the time, to avoid a strike by unionized employees,[4] but it led to major programming reshuffles and left several station employees out of work. Unofficial reports place the station's sale price at about US$2.5 million.[5]
