Howard University radio station WHUR (96.3 FM) will receive the coveted National Association of Broadcasters Crystal Heritage Award next month in recognition of its work in community service.

The virtual presentation will take place on April 13 during the 34th annual NAB Crystal Awards.

“We are truly honored and humbled to be recognized for such a coveted award,” said WHUR General Manager Sean Plater. “WHUR is proud to serve the community, and we are grateful to our generous listeners who, time and time again, join us in answering the call to help those in need. That’s really what it’s all about for us — being a good neighbor, whether near or far.”

WHUR, which is owned by Howard and marks its 50th anniversary this year, is one of just eight other stations from across the country in line to receive the NAB honor.
