WHUR’s General Manager Jim Watkins Retires

You know the music we play, the news we report and decades of community service that have put 96.3 WHUR-FM radio on the map and in the hearts of the DC metro. But what you probably don’t know is the man who has steered the ship for decades… in good times and bad. The general manager. The boss. We talk to Millard James Watkins, III… Jim as we call him. We salute him as he retires after 47 years at WHUR!
