ITHACA -- Ithaca College's WICB won the very first "College Radio Woodie" at the mtvU Woodie Awards in 2008, and they're hoping to pull it off again this year. WICB and three other local college stations made it into the top 25, but WICB is the lone local nominee to make it into the final round of ten. WICB's fate will be determined by online voting.
Head over to the mtvU Woodie Awards 2011 website to cast your vote for WICB (or any of the other nine finalists). Voting is open until noon on Tuesday, March 1st. Winners will be announced during the live mtvU Woodie Awards 2011 telecast at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas. The telecast begins at midnight on March 16, and it'll be carried on MTV, MTV2 and mtvU.
The top ten list was unveiled on Tuesday (your editor was away on vacation earlier this week, sorry for the delay). Before the top 10, there were the top 25, which included WICB and three other local radio stations. They were WPNR 90.7 from Utica College, Z89 (WJPZ-FM) from Syracuse University, and WERW (1570am), also from Syracuse University.
