CMJ College Radio Awards Winners Announced

On Thursday, during College Day at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City, the winners were announced in CMJ’s annual College Radio Awards. As is frequently the case, the awards ceremony was full of fun and frivolity. Awards recognized college radio staffers/stations as well as organizations and people working in the music industry.

WKDU from Drexel University in Philadelphia was the big radio winner, taking home awards for Station of the Year and for Biggest Champion of the Local Scene. And, in a nice nod to the struggles they’ve encountered over the past year, KUSF-in-Exile was awarded Best Student-Run Internet-Only Station. This year, the music marketing company The Syndicate swept the industry awards, winning every category except two (which were awarded to Sub Pop Records and to CMJ’s Editor-in-Chief Lisa Hresko).
