Howard University Owns What Has Become Washington’s Most Popular Radio Station

The latest Arbitron listener ratings in the Washington, D.C., market show that WHUR-FM is now the city’s most-listened-to radio station. The station, which plays rhythm and blues as well as adult contemporary music, saw its ratings jump 20 percent over the previous quarter.

Why should this be of concern to readers of JBHE? The answer is simple. WHUR-FM radio is owned and operated by Howard University, the historically black educational institution in the nation’s capital.
