WHUR Lands New Station to Expand the Quiet Storm

Washington, D.C. (Wednesday, March 3, 2021) – The soft soothing sound of WHUR’S 24/7 Quiet Storm Station is expanding, giving more Washington, D.C. area listeners a chance to experience the relaxing romantic format. Listeners with analog radios can now tune in to hear their favorite slow jams non-stop on 98.3FM.

The expansion comes as the heritage flagship station 96.3 WHUR FM is set to mark its 50th Anniversary this year. “WHUR has long been a trailblazer in the industry and we are always looking for new opportunities to expand our brand. The addition of 98.3FM now allows us to have a greater reach across the DMV,” said WHUR General Manager Sean Plater.

The Quiet Storm Station was launched last December on 96.3HD2 holding true to the original flavor of the Quiet Storm set in place back in 1976 by the late Melvin Lindsey and still heard nightly on WHUR 96.3FM. “Whether in your office, car, or at home; the Quiet Storm Station sets the right mood for the DMV and now with 98.3FM there are more ways for Washington to relax and unwind,” added Plater.

The Quiet Storm Station is available at 98.3FM and 96.3HD2 with an HD Radio. It’s also available at www.thequietstormstation.com and on The Quiet Storm Station mobile app.
