The Type IIP Supernova 2012aw (CBET #3054) in the galaxy M95 has been observed with the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array on 2012 Mar 24.25 at frequencies of 20.8 GHz. Radio emission was detected near the supernova location, with a flux density of 0.160 +/- 0.025 mJy. This variable radio source is coincident with the detection on 2012 Mar 30.1 of 0.315+/-0.018 mJy (ATEL #4010).
