XHRM-FM or Magic 92.5 is a Rhythmic Adult Contemporary outlet licensed in the Mexican state of Baja California and is operated by Finest City Broadcasting of San Diego, California, United States. The station operates at 92.5 MHz with an effective radiated power of 100 kW. Finest City took over operations from Clear Channel Broadcasting on December 1, 2005 because of ownership limits in San Diego due to the addition of Tijuana into the market.

History

XHRM debuted on the air in 1981 as San Diego's first Urban Contemporary station. Over the course of the decade, the station would evolve into a Rhythmic Contemporary format, being one of the first stations in the U.S. to regularly play Freestyle songs as a part of their playlist. The combination of the Latin based Freestyle songs along with the station's original mainstream R&B sound was a success, giving the station its signature style for the remainder of the decade. The station's sound returned to a less progressive, more traditional Urban Contemporary style again in 1990 due in part to a prospective buy-out. A few years later, in 1993 the station's format changed to Modern Rock (as "92.5 The Flash") before landing into its current format Rhythmic Adult Contemporary in 1998 after XETRA became its sister station.
