The renaming follows a multi-million dollar gift to the School from Radio One, Inc. President and CEO Alfred Liggins III through the Catherine L. Hughes and Alfred C. Liggins, III Foundation.

Hughes has made a tremendous impact with her service to both the School and the University; it was at Howard’s WHUR-FM that she pioneered the “Quiet Storm” radio format in the late 1970s and she currently serves as the School’s third Time Warner Endowed Chair. In 2005, the University bestowed upon her the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa.

Congrats to Cathy Hughes!
