The Drum has long been known as the first telegraph. A way our ancestors communicated before phones or even the telegraph. We know Washington DC’s news affects not just the region, but the world, so radio and television veteran Harold Fisher breaks the news you need to know and invites listeners to call-in and provide feedback about daily topics. You can hear the second half hour of the Daily Drum on our sister station H.U.R. Voices on Sirius XM Channel 141.

The Daily Drum is daily news program featuring National and Local news and an interview segment called Insight. The topic of discussion includes Politics, Wealth, Education, Health, Family and the Community. The Daily Drum has been a primetime staple of Howard University Radio for 40 years.
