B104.7 (WBBS/Fulton-Syracuse) and Froggy 97 (WFRY/Watertown) have received nominations for Academy of Country Music Awards. B104.7 morning hosts Ron and Becky are in the running for "On Air Personality of the Year - Medium Market." Froggy 97 is among the candidates for "Radio Station of the Year - Small Market."
Also on the list, Turning Stone Casino is one of five nominees for "Casino of the Year."
The nominees for these awards and several other categories were announced today, because the Academy of Country Music says it won't have time to include them in its telecast. The ACM telecast will be Sunday, May 18 at 8:00pm on CBS.
None of the above nominees won their categories. Medium-market On-air Personality went to someone from Florida, and Small-Market Station went to a Tennessee station. (At least 4 awards went to various Tennessee stations... and the ACM is based in Tennessee... go figure.) Casino of the Year went to Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
