Commercial radio group Bauer has four nominations in this year’s Music Week Awards, while Absolute Radio has two.
BBC Radio 1, Radio 2 and 6 Music go up against Absolute Radio, Global Radio’s Capital FM, and Bauer pair Kerrang! and Wave 105 in the Radio Station of the Year category.
The BBC has four of the seven nominations in the award for Radio Show of the year – Chris Evans (Radio 2), Mistajam (1Xtra), Steve Lamacq (6 Music) and Roger Day (BBC Local Radio in the South/South East). They face competition from Absolute Radio’s Ronnie Wood Show, the KISS breakfast show (Rickie, Melvin and Charlie) and Bauer Scotland’s Jim Gellaty who presents the weekly ‘In Demand: Uncut’ show.
The radio categories have changed slightly this year and will be awarded to a station and a show. Last year, BBC Radio 6 Music won the ‘National Radio Station’ of the year prize, while Wave 105 was named best ‘Regional Radio Station’.
This year’s Music Week Awards will be handed out on 26th April in London.
