XEITE-AM is a radio station in Mexico City, broadcasting on 830 kHz.



XELA-AM was founded in 1940 in Mexico City with a classical music format. For many years it was one of the few sources of classical music available to ordinary Mexican citizens. XELA was able to acquire quality sound recordings from the United States, England and France, even though it started with a very low budget, through an exchange program for Mexican music recordings. The station was acquired by Grupo Imagen in 1963.

From the 1970s to the mid-1980s, the station simulcast on XELA-FM 98.5. That station was split off in the mid-1980s.

The station was threatened with closure in 2000, but protests by listeners from laborers to the intelligentsia keep it open for a while longer. Their slogan was "Buena música desde la Ciudad de México!" ("Good music from Mexico City!").


On January 2, 2002, Imagen dropped the classical music format for sports, as "Estadio W 830" (a format now found on XEX-AM) and changed the callsign to XEITE-AM. The change resulted in protests from the station's dedicated listeners; some famous Mexican cultural luminaries, including Elena Poniatowska, José Luis Cuevas, Vicente Quirarte and Víctor Hugo Rascón, formed the "National XELA Rescue Committee" (or CONAREXELA) on July 10 of that year.[2] The group sought for the Instituto Mexicano de la Radio to take over the station, but IMER refused, saying it would incorporate that format into its own XHIMER-FM 94.5.

In 2004, the station was sold to Grupo Radio Capital (now known as Capital Media). The Radio Capital format included news and sports programming as well as contemporary music.

At 7 p.m. on February 14, 2019, Radio Capital in Mexico City ceased operations to make way for the relocation of the Quiéreme romantic format from Grupo Siete from 1440 XEEST-AM, which shares transmission facilities with XEITE.

In December 2019, the station switched to Christian programming under the name "Ondas de Paz". On February 14, 2020, Ondas de Paz moved back to 1440 and Capital resumed programming the 830 frequency.
