Francisco Aguirre Gómez
Francisco Aguirre Jiménez founded in 1965 Organización Impulsora de la Radio, which as part of Grupo Radio Centro, today belongs to his son Francisco Aguirre Gómez. Aguirre Jiménez was running the open-TV Canal 13 from 1968 to 1972.
During the first public tender for TV channels in Mexico the participants were Grupo Imagen and Grupo Radio Centro; Aguirre Gómez offered 3 millions of Mexican pesos, which at the end he couldn't pay. He was disqualified from the tender but the Federal Institute for Telecommunications kept the 415 millions of pesos he paid as guarantee. At the end of 2017 he participated again in a new tender and finally obtained the spectrum's concession for digital television, namely Canal 8.
In 2011 the then Mexican President Felipe Calderón awarded him for his contributions in the media industry, and two months later he received Premio Antena de Oro from the Federation of Associations of Radio and TV from Spain.
