WHUR-FM to Receive NAB HD Radio Multicast Award

--Second annual award presentation to take place during The NAB Radio Show--

WASHINGTON -- Howard University's WHUR-FM will receive the NAB HD Radio Multicast Award for its HD-2 channel, "WHUR-WORLD." The station will receive the award during the NAB Radio Luncheon, sponsored by ASCAP, on Friday, September 19 during The NAB Radio Show in Austin.

"WHUR-WORLD HD2 has successfully combined non-traditional music, news, community involvement and information into a fresh new variety format that creates a new identity for HD radio," said NAB Executive Vice President of Radio John David.

Howard University's WHUR-WORLD 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 utilizing 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.
