Howard Univ. radio marks 40th anniversary with SiriusXM satellite radio channel

(November 21, 2011) Howard University Radio, which is celebrating its fortieth anniversary, announced today it will launch H.U.R. Voices on SiriusXM channel 141 on Thursday, December 1. H.U.R. Voices will offer educational and entertaining original programming that examines and explores issues affecting people of color, including a unique mixture of talk radio, local and national news, and great music.

SiriusXM granted Howard University a lease to create two channels on the satellite radio system. The other channel, HBCU, is set to launch May 2012 and will provide music and talk programming from Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The historic lease represents a significant step towards diversifying the airwaves.

"This is a milestone year for us," said Jim Watkins, general manager of WHUR, WHUR-WORLD, and H.U.R. Voices. "Not only are we celebrating 40 years of our flagship radio station, we have been given the awesome opportunity of rolling out H.U.R. Voices on SiriusXM, which gives us the opportunity to further expand our brand and nationalize our programming."

The channel will feature WHUR and WHUR-WORLD signature programs like the "Daily Drum," a weekday public affairs program that will expand to one-hour; the "Dr. Audrey Chapman Show," with the relationship guru; and the "Sighlent Storm," the only radio show devoted to the issue of domestic violence.  New programs include "People Money Life," "The Traveling Eye" and "He Said She Said."  H.U.R. Voices will embody the mission of Howard University -- to serve "America and the Global Community."

Known as a media trailblazer, WHUR has a legacy of leading the way in radio. The station was first in the Washington region to broadcast in crystal-clear HD and the only urban station in the country to sponsor a NASCAR race with its own driver.
