NOMINATIONS ANNOUNCED FOR THE 2011 CANADIAN RADIO MUSIC AWARDS

From rock to pop and urban to country, Canada’s hottest radio stars will be celebrated at the 14th Annual Canadian Radio Music Awards (CRMA) on Friday, March 11, 2011, 12:30pm. Taking place at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto as part of Canadian Music Week 2011, the awards will be handed out during a gala luncheon hosted by Boom 97.3’s “Humble” Howard Glassman and featuring performances by nominees Hail the Villain, Stef Lang, JRDN, High Valley, Down With Webster and Ash Koley.

This year’s list includes multiple nominations for Ash Koley, JRDN, Justin Bieber, Laurell, Longo & Wainwright ft. Craig Smart, Stef Lang, Michael Buble and Down with Webster. The complete list of nominees is printed below.

Presented by Canadian Music Week, the Canadian Radio Music Awards honour first-time top charting Canadian artists in six music categories, including Mainstream AC, Hot AC, Rock, CHR, Dance/Urban/Rhythmic, and Country. Nominees include 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 2010. Votes cast by music directors, program 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 the Canadian Music Week website (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.

At this year’s ceremony, David Marsden will receive the Allan Waters Broadcast Lifetime Achievement Award to commemorate his induction into the Canadian Music and Broadcast Industry Hall of Fame.
