Excelsior, La Jornada and Reforma are also big names in the publishing and printing press sector. Several radio stations have an influential following in Mexico. Grupo ACIR and MVS Radio have a coverage of almost the entire country. Nucleo radio Mil has both AM and FM stations housed within the city while Grupo Radio Centro is an umbrella for a big number of other stations.
