Toronto, ON (March 15, 2018) - CMW is proud to announce the nominees for the 21st Annual Canadian Radio Music Awards (CRMA) on Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel in the Dominion Ballroom. Jessie Reyez, Dvbbs, and New City lead in nominations.

Votes cast by program directors, music directors, and on-air personalities determine the winners.
 
This year's CRMA awards categories include: AC, CHR, Dance/Urban/Rhythmic, Rock, and Country as well as Fans' Choice. The full list of nominations can be seen below. Radio listeners from across the country can vote online for the Fans' Choice Award at www.cmw.net.
