MVS Noticias 102.5 (XHMVS-FM)

MVS Noticias started transmitting on the frequency 102.5FM on the 12th of January 2009. From Monday to Friday, this station has four news releases with different topics such as political, economic, social and sports news. Before 2017 it was known as Noticias MVS.   

 

Grupo MVS has been widely related with the federal government in its last six-year term. In 2014 for example, the President Enrique Peña Nieto did the inauguration of the Service Desk of Dish México in Morelia, State of Michoacán; this is an investment of 261 millions of Mexican pesos, which is planned to directly generate 1.500 jobs in the State.

Affiliated Interests Founder

Joaquín Vargas Gómez - Forerunner of the FM frequency in Mexico. He incentivized the creation of Stereorey and Telerey before establishing Grupo MVS, which has three business components: MVS Telecomunicaciones (pay-TV system) and MVS Radio (radio stations) which make MVS Comunicaciones; the third component is Corporación Mexicana de Restaurantes (Mexican Corporation of Restaurants). This businessman also did business in the construction of gas stations in Mexico City. He died in 2009.

Affiliated Interests Ceo

Joaquín Vargas Guajardo - Son of Joaquín Vargas Gómez and President of Grupo MVS. After the death of his father in 2009, he strenghtened Grupo MVS which now has four radio networks (Noticias MVS 102.5, EXA FM, La Mejor FM and FM Globo) and the pay-TV system Dish México. He expanded the business with restaurants initiated by his father, and today this bussines is in charge of his son Joaquín Vargas Mier y Terán, Executive President of Corporación Mexicana de Restaurantes.   

Vargas Guajardo and the Mexcian journalist Carmen Aristegui have a large history of conflicts. In 2015 MVS fired Aristegui as the program host of Primera emisión and also fired her team of collaborators. The reason was that MVS criticized her for using their brand to implement Mexicoleaks - a platform for citizens' complaints where citizens can expose corruption cases. Aristegui was already fired in 2011 for asking publicly on-air if the then president Felipe Calderón had alcohol problems, but under public pressure, MVS withdrew her dismissal. Her dismissal in 2015 turned into a lawsuit and one federal judge decided that MVS acted illegally. The story goes on with a lawsuit from Vargas Guajardo against Aristegui for publishing information that was damaging his honour in the foreword of the book "La Casa Blanca de Peña Nieto" (Peña Nieto's White House). This book originated from an investigation that was orginally published on the online portal Aristegui Noticias in 2014. The investigation reports about the real estate that the first lady allegedly purchased and which involves conflicts of interest from the President's side, his wife and other governmental officials. In 2016, a civil judge decided that Aristegui exceeded her "right to freedom of expression and information" when talking about Vargas Guajardo in this book.
