Local hometown favorites Allison Seymour and Marc Clarke are joining WHUR 96.3FM as the new hosts of afternoons on the flagshipheritage station of the Howard University Radio Network.
“Afternoons with Allison Seymour & Marc Clarke” is set to debut Tuesday, February 12th at 3p.m.
The husband and wife duo is no stranger to the Washington, D.C. market. Seymour is seen weekdays on “FOX 5 Morning News” and Clarke has been a fixture on local radio for more than a decade, including at WHUR. “Afternoons with Allison Seymour and Marc Clarke” will be a mixture of music and topical conversations, sprinkled with celebrity and local interviews; buzz worthy News; pop culture; and lots of giveaways.
“We know the commute home in the DMV can be hectic between the traffic and just trying to juggle the work life balance. Our goal is to make afternoons a smoother transition for the DMV with a fun, yet real and engaging show, each and everyday,” said Seymour.
Seymour is a native Washingtonian and this is a perfect chance for her fans to get a double dose of their homegrown favorite. Seymour will continue to anchor Fox 5 Morning News daily and then join her husband in the afternoons on WHUR. “I am so thankful to the management team at Fox 5 for allowing me to pursue this opportunity.
“Afternoons with Allison Seymour and Marc Clarke,” airing from 3p.m. to 7p.m. on 96.3FM, the new WHUR mobile app, and www.whur.com, rounds out WHUR’s weekday programs, which include “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” “Middays with Triscina Grey,” “The Daily Drum with Harold Fisher,” and “The Original Quiet Storm with Jeff Brown.”
“This new show offers us the opportunity to be live, local, and a voice for the DMV in the afternoon. We look forward to a very successful show and taking over DC afternoons with Allison and Marc,” said WHUR Interim General Manager Sean Plater.
