In Washington, FM stations WHUR and WAMU separately launched supplemental digital channels this week.
The new stations are broadcast digitally as well as streamed on the Web.
WHUR-World offers a mix of music and information intended to expand the way people look at the world. The HD2 channel is programmed in conjunction with the Howard University School of Communications, licensee of WHUR, which was the first commercial station in Washington to go IBOC in 2004.
WAMU launched its second supplemental channel in collaboration with Towson University’s WTMD in Maryland. WAMU is broadcasting the AAA format on WAMU 88.5 Channel 2, its second digital channel. The stations are co-promoting the Baltimore-Washington connection. WAMU now airs “Bluegrass Country” on its HD3 channel.
