Ronnie Wood - Rising Star Ronnie Wood

Ronnie Wood has been nominated for a rising star award.

The ageing rocker will fight it out against DJs Matt Edmondson, Robbie Savage, Sarah Thompson and Simon Conway in the Sony DAB Rising Star Award at the Sony Radio Academy Awards 2011.

The 63-year-old Rolling Stone guitarist will also challenge DJs Chris Moyles and Scott Mills and Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker for Music Radio Personality of the Year for his Friday evening show on digital station Absolute Classic Rock.

In a ceremony hosted by 95.8 Capital FM & Classic FM's Margherita Taylor and BBC 6music & Radio 2's Huey Morgan in London last night (30.03.11), Absolute Radio were announced to have received 14 nominations while talkSport will contest in six categories including UK Station of the Year.

The awards are judged by industry and media professionals, with this year's panel including Fi Glover, Natasha Kaplinsky, and Miranda Sawyer.

Tim Blackmore, Chairman of the Sony Radio Academy Awards said: "Once again, more than 1,000 entries have demonstrated the huge diversity and the impressive standards delivered by Britain's radio industry. The power of audio continues to enrich all our lives through the ever increasing range of platforms celebrated by these Awards."

The awards will be presented at a ceremony on Monday 9 May at London's Grosvenor House Hotel hosted by Radio 2's Chris Evans.
