The nominations have been tallied, and we can now announce the top nominees for the 2011 College Radio Awards! Congratulations to everyone who has been nominated—you earned it! Check out these excellent radio staffers, stations and industry members, and get ready to cast your ballot. Most importantly, who will take home the 2011 SOTY—last year’s co-winners CJLO and WKDU, past nominee KUOM or newcomer WLUW?
Voting will take place on-site at CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival. Anyone with a CMJ badge can vote. Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony, which, we must say is always a jolly good time, taking place on College Day at CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival. That’s Thursday, October 20, y’all. This year’s limited-edition—and totally punk rock—awards will be provided by Print Mafia. Good luck to all!
