WHUR-WORLD, the high quality digital HD2 channel of WHUR-FM, is a progressive mix of music and information:

  • whose roots are embedded in the original WHUR concept of “360 degrees of Total Blackness”
  • whose broadcast reach is extended by the world wide web
  • whose purpose is to offer an alternative multicast of programming that entertains, educates, addresses social problems, and provides context for a mature adult listening audience

WHUR-WORLD is a new high definition radio channel broadcasting culturally rich content to a diverse audience on the WHUR-FM HD Radio network.

Both music and information on WHUR-WORLD will help listeners understand—in keeping with Howard University’s mission – “America and the Global Community.” The music and information are intended to entertain, to inspire creative thought and imagination, and, as appropriate, to change mental perspectives and viewpoints. The music is an intensive blend of Classic Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, Hip Hop, Blues, African-American Folk, and World. Similarly, the non-music information provides context drawing upon multiple cultural sites.
