2019 Mexico breakupEdit

On December 26, 2019, Disney and its Mexican partner, Grupo ACIR, announced they were mutually ending their relationship, which had covered twelve Mexican cities.[4] Ten of the twelve Radio Disney stations were transitioned to ACIR's replacement pop format, Match.[5] However, Radio Disney stated in a press release that it would return on new stations in 2020.[4] One article attributed the breakup to "three direct format competitors and an impressive surge in Spotify consumption in key market Mexico City."[6]. Radio Disney returned to the country on February 1, 2020, exclusively on Mexico City station XHFO-FM.
