Joe Gorham Long Time Radio Host and Programmer at 96.3 WHUR Has Passed Away

Joe Gorham appeared on The Daily Drum on WHUR in December. His final on air appearance on the station during their 50th year anniversary celebration.

FROM WHUR.COM-- It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share the passing of one of our esteemed and beloved forever WHUR family members Joseph “Joe” Gorham.  Joe died Sunday, January 23, 2022 while doing one of his greatest loves, traveling.

There are some key people who come to mind when you think of DMV radio legends. Joe Gorham is certainly among that distinguished list. Joe was a veteran broadcaster with a career spanning more than four decades stretching up and down the East Coast.

Joe spent much of his career as a dedicated member of the WHUR Family holding down numerous positions. Joe started as a freelance technical producer for the Jerry Phillips Morning Show in 1979. From there, he went on to become a freelance announcer and moved on to a full-time staff performer.

In 1991, Joe left WHUR to go up the radio dial to WDJY-100 FM and then to Atlanta’s WALR 104.7. He returned to his beloved WHUR three years later where he hosted the weekend edition of the Original Quiet Storm followed by producing the Washington, DC edition of the #1 nationally syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show.

Joe was a creative soul who made his footprint not only in radio. He touched many parts of the Arts genre. He loved poetry, hosting a WHUR radio program called “Spoken Word at Joe’s Place,” giving up and coming and legendary poets like Nikki Giovanni a platform to share their gifts and talents.

Just a small tribute to Joe Gorham. Read more on the 96.3 WHUR website.
