It’s that time again for End of Year lists! Here on VOLUME, we do things a little differently. All year long, we talk about music and the people behind it. Now it’s time to relive the magic and chaos by highlighting who and what stood out in 2017 LIVE. Hosted by Jim Shearer, with commentary from Mark Goodman, Alan Light, Lori Majewski, Nik Carter and Eddie Trunk, the VOLUME Awards will air LIVE Thursday, Dec. 21 from 4 pm to 7 pm ET on SiriusXM VOLUME (Ch. 106).

The winners from each category will be picked in a secret ballot voted on by the entire VOLUME staff of hosts, contributors, and producers with the Topic of the Year category voted on by fans in a Twitter Poll. Special Guest presenters include Jenny McCarthy, Andy Cohen, Jim Norton, Ron and Gail Bennington with more to be announced!
