XEG-AM is an radio station on clear-channel frequency 1050 kHz in the state of Nuevo León, Mexico.[1] It is licensed for Guadalupe, Nuevo León and brands itself as serving Monterrey. Known for its border blaster status in the 1950s, it now uses the name La Ranchera de Monterrey and broadcasts ranchera music.[2]


In 1950 the advertising time on XEG came under the control of Harold Schwartz of Chicago who also came to represent XERB-AM near Tijuana/Rosarito, Baja California, the station made famous in the movie American Graffiti.
