History

XENLT-AM 1000 received its concession on May 22, 1985. It was owned by Radio Mil del Norte, S.A. de C.V. and was a daytimer with 1,000 watts. Radio Fórmula acquired it in 1997 and increased power in 1998, adding nighttime service at 100 watts.

The concessionaire changed from Radio Fórmula del Norte to Radio Transmisora del Pacífico in 2016.

In 2017, XENLT was granted an AM-FM migration as XHNLT-FM on 96.1 MHz. XHNLT signed on at 2:07 pm on March 5, 2018[3] and formally began operations on April 23. The FM station offers three total subchannels, including the national Segunda Cadena feed and the Trión musical format.[4] XENLT-AM shut down April 23, 2019, after the required year of simulcasting.[5]
