    WHUR-FM to Receive NAB HD Radio Multicast Award
    Washington - Sep 5, 2008 - Howard University's WHUR-FM will receive the NAB HD Radio Multicast Award for its HD2 channel WHUR-World. The station will receive the award during the NAB Radio Luncheon on Sept. 19 during The NAB Radio Show in Austin, TX.

    WHUR-World combines non-traditional music, news, community involvement and information into a unique format. The multicast channel is an extension of the university's WHUR-FM adult urban contemporary station. In addition to personality-supported shows, the programming for WHUR-World includes jazz, hip-hop and worldbeat music, along with business, financial and domestic violence talk shows.

    The NAB HD Radio Multicast Award was established in 2007 and recognizes stations using HD Radio technology through innovative or groundbreaking programming on a multicast channel. Stations were asked to submit information including programming, on-air personalities, promotions and branding elements that establish the multicast channel with a separate identity from the main station.
