CMJ Announces 2013 College Radio Award Winners

CMJ 2013This year’s CMJ Music Marathon drew to a close over the weekend, after a hectic week full of concerts, parties, panel discussions, and workshops. On Thursday, at the annual College Day, college radio stations from all over the country were honored at the 2013 College Radio Awards. Nominated (see the complete nominee list here) by fellow CMJ subscribers (stations and music industry folks) and then voted on by CMJ attendees, the winners represent radio stations, radio station volunteers, and record labels/promoters who have direct contact with college radio.
