XEBG-AM (1550 AM "Cadena 1550 AM") is a Spanish News/Talk radio station that serves the Tijuana area of the Mexican state of Baja California.

History

XEBG received its first concession in October 1936. It was owned by Ángel B. Fernández and operated from facilities in the Baron Long house in Tijuana on 820 kHz, with 1,000 watts. Baron Long was the founder of the Agua Caliente resort, and some sources note that XEBG operated from the resort on 750 kHz, likely prior to its 1936 concession. XEBG moved to 1550 within several years of signing on and changed hands several times in its first 20 years of operation: Roberto Salazar bought it in 1946 and Octavio B. Lelevier in 1949. In 1956, Octavio's widow, Nelly Murillo Vda. de Lelevier, was granted a 30-year renewal for the concession.

In 1959, XEBG was bought by Mario Marcos Mayans, the founder of Cadena Baja California. Mario Enrique Mayans Concha became the concessionaire in 1977 after Marcos Mayans's death.
