Nick Grimshaw misses out on Sony breakfast show award nomination

Nominations for the prestigious Sony Radio Academy Awards 2013 have been revealed today.

The best breakfast show category will be hotly contested between names such as Chris Evans and Christian O’Connell. But Nick Grimshaw, who took over the Radio 1 morning slot from Chris Moyles last year, was noticeably absent from the list.

Grimshaw has taken the show to its lowest ratings in seven years since taking over late last year.  However, he did manage to bag one nomination in the best use of multiplatform category.

Despite getting the axe last year from Radio London after an on-air rant against the broadcaster, Danny Baker is up for two awards including speech broadcaster of the year. Cerys Matthews will battle out Radio 2’s Johnnie Walker and Jamie Cullum for music radio broadcaster of the year.

The nominations also boasted several celebs that have forayed into radio from other careers, including Jarvis Cocker, Dermot O’Leary, Lauren Laverne and even Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones.
