XEAW-AM is a radio station located in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico, with 10,000 Watts, owned and operated by Multimedios Radio and currently simulcasts XHAW-FM's La Gran AW romantic format. The station also transmits the Telediario newscasts from co-owned Multimedios Televisión. XEAW-AM broadcasts on a frequency of 1280 kHz.


The XEAW-AM callsign first appeared on a border-blaster radio station located in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, across the Rio Grande (Río Bravo) from McAllen, Texas, USA. In the 1930s the station came under the control of Dr. John R. Brinkley who became famous for both his controversial treatments of sexual dysfunction and his operations of XER and XERA at Villa Acuña (modern-day Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila), opposite Del Rio, Texas.

Meanwhile, in Monterrey, XEX-AM on 1310 kHz started up in 1934; in 1937, Jesús Dionisio González (El Heraldo del Comercio, S.A.) bought the station from Don Federico Zertuche. The first transmission over XEX was a baseball game from Mexico City. In the early 1950s, the government requested the XEX callsign to build a national network, and in turn the station received the new callsign XEAW; at the same time, the station moved to 1280 kHz. In 1968, the Estrellas de Oro group expanded to a television station, XHAW-TV channel 12.
