Chris Moyles and Russell Brand up for Sony awards

BBC disc jockeys Chris Moyles and Russell Brand are among the nominees for the radio industry's most prestigious awards.

The nominations for the 26th Sony Radio Academy awards were announced by Chris Evans, himself a former winner, last night.

Radio 1 DJ Moyles receives his first nomination for the breakfast show prize, having won the entertainment award and is up against regional shows from Scotland and Nottinghamshire as well as Johnny Vaughan's breakfast show for Capital 95.8.

Vaughan is also nominated in the entertainment category with competition from Scott Mills' Radio 1 show, The Russell Brand Show on Radio 2, Toolan in the Morning in Key 103 and the Jo & Twiggy Breakfast Show on Trent FM.

Though the Today programme is not nominated in the traditionally BBC-dominated ceremony, two of its presenters - John Humphrys and James Naughtie - are named in the speech broadcaster category.

And the BBC is certain to take the UK radio station of the year prize after Radio 2, Radio 4 and Radio 5 Live grabbed the three nominations.
