The inaugural Clue Awards, the first awards show dedicated exclusively to true-crime content, has revealed its nominees and the host of its inaugural event.

Law & Crime Network founder and former Live PD host Dan Abrams (pictured) will host the awards show, which is scheduled for April 30 in Las Vegas during this year’s CrimeCon event. Abrams is also the host of NewsNation’s Dan Abrams Live and ABC News’ chief legal analyst.

The awards show will also honor The Black and Missing Foundation as its Crimefighter of the Year, an award created to spotlight an individual or organization that has made a significant commitment to seeking justice for crime victims, and will make a donation to the non-profit as well.

The Black and Missing Foundation was founded in 2008 to bring awareness to missing persons of color, and provides resources and tools for the families and friends of victims as well as offering education on personal safety. Last year, HBO debuted Black and Missing, a four-part docuseries following the non-profit’s founders, Derrica and Natalie Wilson, as they worked to raise awareness of cases involving missing people of color that have been overlooked by media outlets.
