Allison Seymour and Marc Clarke Take Afternoons At WHUR
Howard University Urban AC 96.3 WHUR Washington DC has dropped the syndicated Michael Baisden Show and will launch a new local show hosted by husband & wife Allison Seymour and Marc Clarke.
Clarke has previously hosted mornings at KMJM St. Louis and WERQ Baltimore and nights at WNBM New York. He previously worked at WHUR from 2010-2014 and recently co-hosted mornings at Jazz 88.9 WEAA Baltimore. A longtime fixture in Washington television, Seymour will continue to co-anchor “Good Day DC” at “Fox 5” WTTG-TV.
Local hometown favorites Allison Seymour and Marc Clarke are joining WHUR 96.3FM as the new hosts of afternoons on the flagship heritage station of the Howard University Radio Network. “Afternoons with Allison Seymour & Marc Clarke” is set to debut Tuesday, February 12 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 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.
