The organization is in the middle of its “Year of Country Radio” campaign. During CRS in February 2012, CMA awarded complimentary organizational and two individual memberships good for one year to all 2000-plus country stations in the United States. Since the Broadcast Award contenders must be CMA Mebers, all stations are now eligible.
“The ‘Year of Country Radio’ is all about celebrating the hard work of Country radio and its importance to our format,” said CMA Chief Executive Officer, Steve Moore. “We’re always honored to spotlight the best of the best in Country radio, and this year will be especially meaningful with so many new members in the CMA family.”
Nominations may be submitted at Broadcast.CMAawards.com until 5 pm/CT on Friday, June 29. Winners will be notified in early October and recognized during the 46th Annual CMA Awards held late in 2012 and broadcast on ABC.
