posted by Mike Walton

Ronnie Wood has been nominated in the rising star category in the 2011 Sony Radio Academy awards for his work as a commercial radio DJ.

Wood has picked up two Sony nominations for his Friday evening show on digital station Absolute Classic Rock, the other being music radio personality of the year.

The DAB rising star award is the only Sonys category in which the winner is chosen by public vote and Wood faces competition from footballer Robbie Savage, for his work as a BBC Radio 5 Live presenter and pundit.

The other nominees in the category are Radio 1's Matt Edmondson; Sarah Thompson, a DJ for Roundhouse Radio, the online station broadcast from the London live events venue; and Simon Conway, a newsreader for Newcastle's Metro Radio.

In the music radio personality category Wood faces more heavyweight mainstream competition from BBC 6 Music's Jarvis Cocker; comedian and Absolute Radio DJ Frank Skinner; Radio 1 breakfast show host Chris Moyles; and Moyles's colleague Scott Mills.

The 2011 Sony Radio Academy awards will be hosted by Chris Evans at London's Grosvenor House Hotel on 9 May.
