NOMINEES ANNOUNCED FOR 2012 CANADIAN RADIO MUSIC AWARDS

TORONTO – January 11, 2012 – The Canadian Radio Music Awards is pleased to announce the nominations for the 15th Annual edition.  The awards, celebrating first-time top charting Canadian artists, will honour nominees across eight distinct categories during a gala luncheon at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto on Friday, March 23, 2012, 12:30pm. Hosted by radio personality Jay “Mad Dog” Michaels, the CRMAs will feature performances by nominees Alyssa Reid, Dragonette, Fefe Dobson, Kira Isabella, Neverest and The Sheepdogs.

Alyssa Reid and Martin Solveig & Dragonette lead this year’s nominations with 5 nods apiece including SOCAN Song of the Year for their respective titles “Alone Again” and  “Hello”. Other multiple nominations include: Kristina Maria (3), Neverest (2), Raghav (2), and Fefe Dobson (2). The complete list of nominees is printed below.

This year’s music categories include: Mainstream AC, Hot AC, Rock, CHR, Dance/Urban/Rhythmic, and Country. Nominees comprise artists who have hit the Canadian charts for the first time and who have achieved top airplay in different formats based on radio “spins”, as recorded by Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems (BDS) in 2011. Votes cast by program directors, music directors, and on-air personalities determine the winners.

Again this year, the CRMA Fans’ Choice Award will be presented. Radio listeners from across the country can vote online for their favourite radio artist at www.cmw.net.

Two additional non-voting awards will also be presented at this year’s ceremony: the FACTOR Breakthrough Award for top airplay for a new FACTOR supported artist; and the Chart Topper Award for top overall airplay.
