rules nor that entrants be listeners of any particular radio station

(unless entry or winning requires listening to a particular radio











5. All entries become the property of the Station and will not be

acknowledged or returned. Entries received that are mutilated, tampered

with, illegible, incomplete or from ineligible entrants may be

disqualified in Station's sole discretion. Entries that are determined

to be fraudulent will be void, and the person making such an entry or

suspected of fraud or tampering with any contest may be barred from

further participation in that contest and, in Station's sole discretion

on a case by case basis, banned from any future participation in any

Station contest.


6. One or more contests may be announced from time to time. Station

may run more than one contest simultaneously, but entries will only be

solicited for one contest at a time.


7. WARNING: Online listeners to streamed broadcasts may

experience a lag in transmissions due to buffering limitations. Contest

Participants should not rely on streamed broadcasts.


8. Depending on the contest, the Station will announce the timing of

the required method of entry/winning. All references in this Section 8

to an “announcement" or to any information to be “announced" may be

announced on-air and/or via email, sms, internet posts, blog posts, text

message, instant message, social network posts, on-site, and/or via

point of purchase displays, materials or handouts. The following apply

to the applicable entry/winning methods designated:


a. For call-in contests: Entrants must call the telephone number

announced at the appropriate time. At the time that calls are

solicited, the criteria for winning will be announced (e.g., first six

callers, tenth caller, first caller with the correct answer). Only

calls to the announced number are eligible to win. Calls to the main

Station phone number or any other phone number are not eligible

entries. If the Station receives less than the requested number of

calls (e.g., only 9 callers when the Station is looking for the 10th

caller to win) within a reasonable period of time (as determined by

Station), Station reserves the right to re-conduct that contest at a

later time or cancel that winning opportunity and not award the

associated prize.


b. For mail-in contests: Entries must be received at the announced

address by the announced deadline. Entries will only be accepted by

U.S. mail. Only one entry per envelope is permitted (additional entries

within the same envelope will be disregarded). If the mail-in contest

requires the use of an official entry form, only official entry blanks

that are handwritten are eligible and official contest entry blanks are

only available while supplies last at each participating distribution



c. For on-site entry box contests: Entries must be deposited in the

official entry box by the announced deadline. Only official entry

blanks that are handwritten are eligible (no mechanical reproductions

will be accepted). Official contest entry blanks are only available at

the location of the official entry box, while supplies last.


d. For internet based entries (whether via email, social networks,

online submissions, or the Station's Club (as defined below)):


i i. Entrants will be asked to go to a particular website

(whether at one or more of the Station's main websites listed above, a

Station social networking page (for example, Facebook), or an

alternative website that can be accessed directly or as a link through

Station website(s) which alternative website is hereinafter referred to

as a “MicroSite") (collectively, a “Website") on particular days and

times to enter a contest, as announced. Criteria for winning and/or

conditions for entry will be announced by Station, which may include,

without limitation, one or more of the following types of modes of

entry/winning: (a) answering survey questions, (b) correctly answering

trivia questions, (c) making predictions or guesses with respect to

certain upcoming events, (d) submitting essays (of specified lengths),

photos, videos or audio, (e) “liking" or taking similar action with

respect to one or more Station social networking pages in order to

access an entry form or to be automatically entered into a contest, or

(f) simply completing entry forms with contact information. 

ii. Contests may require that entrants be a member of (or

“like") the Station's online club, social networking page or texting

club in order to enter. In addition, entrants may be provided with an

opportunity to opt-in for membership/participation as part of the entry

process or, in the alternative, may be required to become a

member/participate in clubs of (for example, email clubs, text clubs,

and rewards programs) or to receive solicitations from Station and/or

its contest sponsors. 

iii. When entry requires membership in the Station's on-line club

(the “Club"): (in addition to the other relevant provisions set forth

in these rules): Membership is free. The Club is an internet club that

will entitle members to, among other things, receive information from

Station and its clients, enter contests, participate in surveys and

enjoy many other opportunities. To join the Club go to the applicable

Station's main website and click on the link for the Club and provide

all required information (incomplete registrations may be invalidated in

Station's sole discretion). In the event of a dispute regarding the

identity of a member, the holder of the registered e-mail account will

be deemed the person who submitted the membership. The holder of the

e-mail account is the natural person who is assigned the e-mail address

by an Internet access provider, online service provider, or other

organization that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the

second level domain associated with the e-mail address in question.

Limit one membership per e-mail address. Members are required to

provide truthful information when completing Club membership

registration form. If a Member cancels his/her membership during any

contest in which such Member is entered (or was automatically entered),

such Member may no longer be eligible to win a prize in such contest, in

Station's sole discretion. Contest entry for Club members may be by

one of the following means: (i) Members are automatically entered in

contests from time to time; (ii) Members may be required to complete a

specific on-line entry blank for particular contests; (iii) Redemption

of Club points (if available), which have no cash value, for an

opportunity to enter selected contests; or (iv) Other means of entry as

may be announced from time to time.

iv. When entry requires membership to, or registration with, a

third party social network (e.g., Facebook or Twitter) (such person

“Users"): In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of a User, a

person who can demonstrate the ability to log into the applicable

account with the correct user name and password will be deemed the User

who submitted the entry. Users acknowledge that the third party social

network sites (“Social Network Sites") are not affiliated with the

Station and, therefore, Station cannot control certain factors relating

to such sites, including, without limitation, errors, cancellation of

User accounts or technical malfunctions associated with any Social

Network Site that may affect any entrant's ability to enter, win, view,

be advised of, be eligible for or be properly considered in a particular

Station contest. Contest entry via Social Network Sites may be by one

of the following means: (i) Users may be automatically entered in

contests from time to time (e.g., all Followers of the applicable

Station Twitter account or all Friends or Fan, or people who Like a page

or such other terminology used from time to time (as applicable) of the

Station's page on Facebook); (ii) User may be required to email the

Station, listen to its radio station or visit the Station's website to

enter; (iii) all (or selected) Users may be offered the opportunity to

call the Station to win at announced days/times or upon the occurrence

of certain on-air broadcasts (i.e. a song, series of songs, sounder or

phrase); (iv) User may be required to post a comment or take other

action to be entered (e.g., changing the User's profile picture) with

respect to User's Social Network Site account; or (iv) other means of

entry as announced by Station. With respect to any Station Facebook

pages (if any), Station has no obligation whatsoever to “accept" (and

reserves the right to freely reject, in its sole discretion in each

specific instance) any particular Friend request and any such rejection

by Station of a Friend request shall render the requestor ineligible to

enter and/or win any contests that require being a “Friend" in order to

participate. Certain contests administered through a Station Facebook

page may require that an entrant “like" a Station page in order to

access an entry form or to be automatically entered into certain Station

contests. By entering Station contests via a third party social

network site, you are authorizing Station to access, utilize and/or

pre-load applicable portions of your social network site information

(i.e. Facebook profile) into the entry form (although clicking on a

separate button may be required to access this function, for example

clicking on a “Facebook Login" button). Station reserves the right, at

any time and for any reason or for no reason, to disassociate any person

from its social media network page/following by any means then

technically available to it (for example, “blocking" a Fan from liking

the Station's Facebook page). Social networking site operators

(including, without limitation, Facebook) are in no way a sponsor,

endorser or administrator of Station contests and are not affiliated

with Station or its contests in any manner. Entry information provided

in Station contests through social networking sites is being provided to

Station, not the associated social networking site operator (for

example, Facebook). Some Station Facebook page contests may allow

entrants to obtain “extra" entries if they “share" their entry with a

friend and that friend validly enters that contest using the link

provided by the entrant, provided that (i) the total number of “extra"

entries can be capped at a maximum number of “extra" entries, as

announced by Station, and (ii) if that friend previously entered that

contest through a link from another entrant, his/her attempt to enter

the contest through subsequent shared links may not constitute a “valid"

entry (in which case, subsequent entrants will not get “extra" entries

for that particular friend).

v. From time to time, Station online contests may utilize

certain contesting software owned and/or administered by third parties

(“Game Administrator"). In such event, entrants may be required to have

or to establish an account with such Game Administrator but all such

account shall be free and entry may be limited to one entry per Game

Administrator account or limited in any other way announced. The

requirements and limitations on setting up an account will be governed

by that Game Administrator and entrants should refer to the Game

Administrator's terms and conditions (for example, a Game Administrator

may only require one account per email address). Game Administrators

are not sponsors of Station contests but entrants may be required, as

part of the entry process, to agree and consent to their terms of

service and/or privacy policy (both of which will be available via a

link during the entry or account registration process) (collectively,

the “Game Administrator Policies"). While agreement to the Game

Administrator Policies may be required in order to enter a Station

contest, the Game Administrator Policies are not a part of these contest

rules but are a separate agreement between the entrant and the Game

Administrator. With respect to the conduct of these contests, in the

event of any conflict between the Game Administrator Policies and

Station contest rules, Station contest rules will govern. 


e. Listen for Your Name Contests: Any Station contest may require

that one or more selected entrants listen for their name to be announced

on-air as a potential winner. In such events: (i) only the actual

person who entered can win (or was deemed to have entered in the case of

certain social network contests or Club contests) and must be the

person who calls in (persons having the same name will be disqualified

if not the actual entrant), (ii) call-ins will only be eligible to win

if the announced telephone number is the one called within the

designated time, and (iii) the call must be received and answered by the

Station within the exact period of time announced.


f. For text message based contests: In case of an identity dispute,

the registered user of the text message account on the date of entry

will be the recognized user. Participants acknowledge that messages are

distributed via third party mobile network providers and, therefore,

Station cannot control certain factors relating to message delivery.

Participants acknowledge that, depending on the recipient's mobile

provider service, it may not be possible to transmit the message to the

recipient successfully. Station does not claim or guarantee availability

or performance of this service, including liability for transmission

delays or message failures. Station does not charge a fee for this

service. It is each Participant's responsibility to check with their

individual carrier, as other charges may apply. BE ADVISED THAT IN SOME



PROVIDER. Station assumes no responsibility for charges incurred for

text-messaging, including, without limitation, as a result of any bounce

back messages or contest notices from the Station. For texting

contests, entrants will be asked to text specific information (as

announced by Station) to a designated telephone line (the phone number

will be given in the announcement) at a particular time or times. At

the time that texts are solicited, the criteria for winning will be

announced (e.g., first text message received with the correct answer).

Only those text messages to the specific shortcode provided, at the time

texting is solicited, shall be eligible to win. Texting to the main

Station phone number, other Station shortcode or any other phone number

are not eligible. Winners will be selected in accordance with the

criteria announced when text messages are solicited. If the Station

receives less than the requested number of text messages (e.g., only 9

text messages when the Station is looking for the 10th texter to win)

within a reasonable period of time (as determined by Station), Station

reserves the right to re-conduct that contest at a later time or cancel

that winning opportunity and not award the associated prize.


g. Song of the Day Type Contests: Station may conduct contests

requiring people to listen for a particular song or combination of songs

(“Song"). The day(s), time (or time ranges), song(s) to listen for and

how to enter and win (which may be via call-in, text message or email)

will be as announced, subject to other applicable provisions in this

Section 7 that apply to the specific mode of entry or winning. The Song

played must be a full song aired on Station, not a song clip or hook or

a portion of a song used in an intro, promotional announcement or

advertisement that airs. The Station will start taking calls as soon as

the designated song starts to play (or, in the event of combination of

consecutive songs, as soon as the last song of the required combination

starts to play). If the Song plays at any other time that day other

than the designated contest hour or, if the announcement specifies that

only the first play of the Song in a day is a contest play, after the

Song has been played earlier that day, it will not be considered a

winning opportunity. Only the Song as performed by the specific artist

named in the announcement will qualify as a winning opportunity.


h. Codeword/Keywords: Any Station contest may require an entrant to

obtain a specific code, codeword, keyword, phrase or other unique

identifier (“Codeword") and to provide the correct

Codeword in order to enter the contest (regardless of the mode of

entry). Codewords may be obtained on a Station or third party website,

by listening to the radio for the Codeword, on Station or third party

social networking sites (which might also require that a potential

entrant “like" a page to access the Codeword), via a text or email or

any other source or combination of sources as may be announced by

Station in connection with that contest.


i. Photo Contests: Contests requiring that entrants submit

photographs (via email, text message, mail, fax, online upload, social

networking site posts or other mode announced), the following provisions

will apply:


i. Electronic submissions of entry photos may only be submitted in

one of the following formats: .jpeg. Posts to third party sites (like

social networking sites) will be accepted only in the formats accepted

by such third party.


ii. All entrants who submit a photo agree to the following (and

Station may (but is not obligated to) require, as a condition of entry,

that entrants sign a separate agreement or, with respect to online

entries, affirmatively check a box or an “I agree" button agreeing to

some or all of the provisions set forth in this Section 7(h) and/or

other requirements):

• Entrant represents and warrants that he/she own the rights to, or has obtained permission to use, the photo submitted.

• Entrant represents and warrants that he/she authorizes Station to

post the photo on Station's website or social network sites.

• Entrant agrees and acknowledges that Station and contest sponsors

and their respective affiliates, parents, employees, agents and all

other related sponsors may use for advertising and/or promotional

purposes, entrant's name, image, photo submission, other entry materials

and/or biographical information on radio, TV broadcasts, newspaper

advertisements, on websites and/or any other medium in connection with

participation in this contest or otherwise without the payment of any

additional compensation to you. 

• Entrant understands and agrees that Station shall be the sole and

exclusive owner of the photograph submitted and agrees to sign any

documents requested by Station to evidence such transfer of ownership.


iii. Station staff may review each photograph for unsuitable content,

as determined in Station's sole discretion. All photographs containing

any content Station deems unsuitable shall be disqualified or edited in

the sole discretion of Station. No notification of such

disqualification or editing will be provided. DO NOT SEND ANY PHOTOS


OBSCENE GESTURES OR SITUATIONS. All of the foregoing may result in

disqualification and/or editing and are not intended to limit in any way

Station's right to deem anything else unsuitable content.


iv. In the event that Station solicits for photos to be posted by

entrants directly on third party social networking sites (for example,

Facebook), the fact that such photo is posted does not mean that such

photo has been accepted by Station as an eligible entry into any

contest. Station shall be the sole determiner as to whether a posted

photo satisfies its entry criteria or not. Station reserves the right

(but not the obligation) to remove or un-tag (or take any similar

action) any photo posted on its social networking site for any reason or

no reason.


v. No more than one (1) photograph may be attached to any entry.


vi. Winners will be selected based on the criteria announced by

Station with respect to each contest, which may include, without

limitation, random drawing or the photograph that Station deems is

“best" (based on any lawful criteria Station deems desirable, in its

sole discretion).


j. On-Site Contesting Events: For contests requiring that entrants,

qualifiers and/or finalists be present at a Station contesting event in

order to continue participation in a contest, the following will apply:


i. If check-in or registration at the event is required by Station,

you must check in (or, in some cases, be in line to check in) at the

closing time announced. Eligibility to participate in the contest event

may require that at check-in each timely arrived participant complete

and sign one or more liability release agreements, provide his/her

social security number, provide evidence of a valid United States

federal or state photo ID (ie. driver's license, passport or

military ID) and/or other specific requirements announced. Failure to

do any of the foregoing at check-in if required will result in automatic



ii. Participants hereby agree to strictly follow all instructions and

directions given by the Station staff at the event and understand that

any intentional failure to comply with the Station's instruction,

process, procedures or contest rules at the event may result in

immediate disqualification (in Station's sole discretion).


iii. Any decision by the Station Contest Administrator at such events will be final and not subject to appeal.


iv. In the event that any contest associated event or any Grand Prize

Event needs to be rescheduled for any reason, such postponement will be

announced on air and on the Station's website. It is the sole

responsibility of each Entrant/Qualifier to check the website and/or

listen on-air for cancellation and/or rescheduling information.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Station may (but is not obligated to)

send a written, email or telephonic notice to Qualifiers regarding any

necessary rescheduling of any Grand Prize Event with the rescheduled

date/time but in no event will Station or Sponsors have any liability or

responsibility for any Qualifier's failure to receive the message for

any reason. In no event will Station or Sponsors have any liability or

responsibility for any potential entrant's, entrant's or Qualifier's

inability to attend any event on the rescheduled date (and no

alternative opportunities will be offered).

9. Station is not responsible for the failure of any third party

sponsor/location to make entry blanks, code words, posters, game cards,

etc. (“Contest Materials") available. If you are unable to obtain

Contest Materials, call (608) 826-0077 and ask to speak to someone in



10. For any contest that requires entrants to answer questions,

submit materials or perform in some other manner (for example, answer a

trivia question, sing a song, say a particular phrase, call in after a

particular song, series of songs or sounder is played, etc…), the

decision of the Station will be final as to all matters, including,

without limitation, (i) the order in which calls, emails, texts or

entries were received and (ii) whether any answer required to be given

is correct or the “best" or most desirable (based on any lawful criteria

Station deems desirable).


11. For contests requiring notification to entrants, qualifiers,

finalists or winners, if the Station did not have actual contact (in

person or telephonic or by email) in which the necessary information was

communicated, then Station will only be required to leave one telephone

message, send one text or send one email to the number or email address

provided in the entry form or provided at the time that the station

collected the winner's information (by phone, electronically or in

person). If no answer or answering machine is reached, Station will not

be obligated to attempt any further contact. For social network

contests, Station may elect to only contact the winner via the social

network account (or, in the alternative, using any other contact

information provided to Station in connection with the entry). If the

entry provided a telephone number or email address, the Station may

contact the winner via phone or email. However, Station reserves the

right, in its sole discretion, to attempt to contact any

qualifier/entrant/finalist/winner more than once and shall not be

required to attempt to contact all qualifiers/entrants/finalists/winners

an equal number of times or in the same communication manner. If no

telephone number or email address was provided and the Station has an

address, the Station may elect to send one written notification letter

by first class mail, time permitting.


12. In certain contests, qualifying winners may also be automatically

entered into a random grand prize drawing or other grand prize winner

determination, as announced. In such event, the location, date and/or

time of such grand prize drawing/event will be announced by Station.

The location of such drawing may be at the Station's studios or may be

at a location to be announced.


13. With respect to any contest involving voting (whether voting determines the qualifier/finalist/winner or not):


a. Station may elect to post online the “in process" tally of online

and/or texting votes but any such display will not be real-time and may

not be relied upon by any of the entrants or voters. Any listing or

other disclosure by Station of “in progress" voting or similar tallies,

if any, will be updated by Station in intervals determined from time to

time by Station for each contest as Station sees fit (including, without

limitation, delays resulting from caching) and the intervals of such

updates of tally information may even vary during any particular

contest. Displaying information about in-progress voting is solely

for entertainment/excitement purposes and not binding upon Stations.

The sole determination of the total number of votes received by any

entry will be made by Station after the close of the voting period based

on its software. In addition, if any Station elects to display any

in-progress tallies related to voting, Station reserves the right (in

its sole discretion) to remove the display of any such tallies at any

time during the contest with or without notice (including, without

limitation, in the last hours before the voting closes).


b. Except as otherwise announced, voting is for entertainment

purposes only and will not be the determining factor in selecting

winners, but may (in Station's sole discretion) be taken into

consideration as one of many factors considered by Station in

determining the winner.


c. Contest eligibility requirements (including, without limitation,

age and residency) are not applicable to determining whether or not a

person may vote in a Station contest.


d. In the event of text voting, Station reserves the right at any

time to end text voting prior to the announced closing date for text

voting, for any reason or for no reason, by providing at least 24 hours

notice on Station's website that such text voting will end early.


e. All references to “voting" or “votes" in the contest rules will be

deemed to include each “like" on a Station Facebook page of a

particular content (for example, a post, photo, comment, etc…), if

applicable to the contest.


14. With respect to any internet-based portion of a contest

(including, without limitation, entries, voting, viewing web pages,

viewing video or audio content, viewing voting tallies, etc….), there

may be delays in updates for the purpose of caching in order to maintain

the efficient functionality of the web server in times of excess load.

As a result, updates may not be available in real time and may be

delayed until such time as Station is prepared for the next cache

refresh. The frequency and duration of any such delay will be in

Station's sole discretion on a case by case basis.


15. With respect to certain contests, Station may elect to post

certain information not available to the general or listening public

about ongoing contests on its website, Club member pages, or Social

Network Site pages or may elect to communicate such information via

email, sms, text message, or social network posting (i.e. Twitter) to a

limited group of people (for example, twitter followers, facebook

friends, or members of Station's email, internet or texting clubs). Such

information may include, without limitation, dates and time ranges when

a contest song or sounder may be played, lists of correct or incorrect

answers received, and/or contest reminders. In such events, no purchase

will be required to obtain such information but Station may require

that persons eligible to receive such extra information be members of

certain Station Clubs or third party Social Network Sites. Station will

have no obligation to make such information available to all potential

contestants and Station will not be obligated to announce that it is or

how it is making such additional information available, unless required

by law. While such additional information may increase the chances

that a recipient will know when to listen or what the correct or

incorrect answers may be (which information may not be available to

non-recipients), there will be no advantage in the mode of entry by

obtaining (or not obtaining) this additional information (for example,

there will be no advantage in being the 10th caller, etc…).


16. Use of robotic, mechanical or other forms of pre-programmed

internet, texting or phone call visit, voting or entry methods is NOT

prohibited. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Station reserves the right

(in its sole discretion), from time to time, to implement entry/voting

processes that may frustrate or prohibit automated entry or voting

(including, without limitation, CAPTCHA, requiring Club membership log

ins or contest/voting registrations, advance email address verification

procedures, limiting the number of entries/votes/web hits

accepted/counted after a maximum number within a specified period of

time as established by Station (which numerical/time limits Station may

decide not to disclose), and/or prohibit any further entries, votes or

web traffic from a particular IP address during a particular contest,

period of time or permanently). Before or during any contest, Station

reserves the right to install and access cookies, alone or along with

other methods, to track web site traffic, entry and/or voting frequency,

and/or to detect or prohibit automated methods of voting, entry or

website visits.


17. In no event will any “deal-making" in connection with a contest between participants or third parties be permitted.


18. Contestants may not violate any federal, state or local laws and

may not harm or endanger themselves or other persons or property in

connection with a contest. If Station deems that a contestant,

participant or any winner may have created a public hazard, cheated,

engaged in improper or illegal activity, caused interference with or

destruction of property and/or utilized public safety resources, such

contestant / winner may be disqualified in Station's sole discretion.


19. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these rules, Station

cannot guarantee that it will be able to view all entries and/or

required entry submissions (essays, photos, videos, etc…) submitted from

a technical perspective, even if sent in the appropriate formats

required. In the event that Station is not able to view any entry or

entry materials submitted for any technical reason whatsoever, that

entry may be disqualified (without notice to the entrant) and Station

will have no liability or obligation to such entrant with respect to the

disqualified entry.


20. Station reserves the right to (but not the obligation) to post

some or all entry information and/or materials on the Station's website

or social networking sites, in whole or in an edited form (in Station's

discretion), as a “featured" entry. Having your entry posted and/or

“featured" does NOT mean that the entrant has won or is likely to win in

that contest. The decision to post or “feature" any such entries is

for entertainment purposes only and is not part of the winner selection

process in the contest.




21. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or stated on-air,

no person will be entitled to receive any prize until after their

eligibility has been confirmed or accepted by Station and all required

paperwork (including, without limitation, liability release agreements)

have been completed by the pending winner within the required deadlines.


22. All prizes awarded must be picked up at the Station's studios at

7601 Ganser Way, Madison, WI 53719 during normal business hours of 8

a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, unless otherwise specifically

directed by Station. Prizes will not be mailed, unless otherwise

determined by the Station.


23. Prizes not claimed within thirty (30) business days of being

advised by Station that the prize is available for pick-up, or in the

case of a time sensitive prize, within its period of usability if

shorter than 30 business days, shall be considered forfeited (without

notice to the winner) and will become property of Station. Such prize

may be disposed of at the discretion of Station Management.


24. Prizes will be released to winners only. Winners may be required

to present a valid United States state or federal photo ID and valid

social security number in order to pick up any prize. Winners may be

required, in Station's sole discretion, to sign one or more liability

release agreements relieving the Station, its parents, subsidiaries,

officers, directors, members, managers, employees, agents, contest

sponsors and others from any and all liability with respect to the

contestant's participation in the contest and the receipt and/or use of

the prize. Any person who refuses to sign the Release and/or provide a

social security number or complete or provide any other documents

required by the Station by the deadline required by Station will forfeit

any and all prizes.


25. Station reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or

greater value for all contests and giveaways. Non-cash prizes are not

redeemable for cash. No transfer or assignment of prizes is allowed,

except as may be determined by Station in its sole and absolute

discretion on a case by case basis.


26. Winners are prohibited from selling any prize awarded or

transferring any prize without Station's authorization (which

authorization must be in writing by a Station representative and shall

be granted or withheld in Station's sole discretion on a case by case

basis). In the event that Station discovers or suspects (correctly or

incorrectly) that a winner is attempting to sell his/her prize from

Station (i.e., ebay, craigslist or otherwise), Station reserves the

right, in its sole discretion, on a case by case basis to take any one

or more of the following actions: (a) immediately disqualify the

winner and deem any prize they were otherwise entitled to as forfeited,

(b) refuse to award the prize to such winner, even if he/she represents

that they will not resell or transfer the prize, and/or (c) prohibit the

violating winner from participating and/or winning any future Station

contests (whether for a fixed period of time or in perpetuity, in

Station's sole discretion) and if such winner ever wins a future Station

contest during the period that he/she is banned, he/she shall be

disqualified from the contest and forfeit any prize once it has come to

Station's attention. Further, Station reserves the right to track

and/or cancel and invalidate any prize awarded that Station suspects was

sold or transferred without authorization.


27. Winners are responsible for paying all applicable local, county,

state and federal taxes on prizes based on the estimated retail value of

the prize, as set forth in the contest rules, and may be issued an IRS

1099 form for all prizes won from Station where the aggregate value of

all prizes is $600 or more in any calendar year.

on a trip.


(d) Any prize involving travel is based on availability and subject

to additional restrictions including blackouts, peak period restrictions

and expiration dates imposed by Station, sponsors and/or agents

confirmed may not be re-scheduled. Winner and guests are required to

travel on the same itinerary and changes may not be made once booked.


(e) With respect to travel, event tickets and/or events of any kind,

Station and sponsors are not responsible for replacing or reimbursing

incurred by contest winners as a result of such cancellations, delays or

other circumstances beyond Station's control.


(f) Any prize that provides an opportunity to meet with, participate

in an activity with, interview or have similar interaction with any

celebrity (other than employees of Station) is contingent upon the

celebrity appearing for such activity/event, which is beyond the

Station's control. Station is not responsible if a winner and/or his/her

guests are unable to meet such celebrity or participate in the

associated activity if the celebrity determines this is not allowable

for any reason or fails to appear/participate for any reason. In the

event of illness, act of god, scheduling conflict or any other reason,

Station is not responsible for this portion of the prize, which has no

monetary value, and no alternate prize will be awarded and the

event/activity will not be rescheduled. In the event that Station

elects (in its sole discretion) to attempt to reschedule any such

event/activity or offer an alternative prize, Station shall have no

obligation whatsoever to offer any other alternate prize if such attempt

to reschedule or other offer is not accepted by or utilized by winner

for any reason whatsoever.


(g) Any prize that is awarded in the form of a gift certificate may

have an expiration date and use of such certificate may be based on

or certain specific products or manufacturers may be excluded. Winner

will receive more information on such restrictions and limitations after

they have been awarded the prize.








29. Odds of winning depend on the how the contest is conducted. For

random drawings, the odds of winning will depend upon number of entries

received. For contests in which winners are qualified for a grand prize

drawing, odds will depend on the total number of qualifiers.


30. All tie breaking procedures will be announced on-air, posted on

Station's website, and/or communicated in writing or by email to tied

contest participants.


31. In the event of any reference in contest materials, pages or

advertisements of a Station privacy policy, to the extent not

inconsistent with the provisions of the contest rules with respect to

the use and disclosure of entrant information, that reference will be

deemed to refer to the Station's privacy policy (if any) posted on its

primary website, unless a different privacy policy is specifically

identified (in which case, any such third party privacy policy shall NOT

be applicable to or part of these contest rules).


32. In the event that any winner, qualifier or finalist is

disqualified in a contest for any reason permitted by the applicable

contest rules at any point in time (before or after a winner is

determined), Station shall NOT be obligated to select an alternative

winner/qualifier/finalist and may instead elect to retain any associated

prize(s) as its own property and/or dispose of any such prize(s) in any

way it sees fit outside of (or within) the scope of the contest. In

the event that any entrant or entry is disqualified or any prize is

forfeited in accordance with the applicable contest rules, Station and

sponsors have no obligation whatsoever to notify any such entrant of any

such disqualification or forfeiture.

of the Station (whether in person, by email, or by telephone) regarding

the status of their entry or questions about a Contest may or may not

be responded to and Station is not obligated to respond or treat to all

inquiries identically (even if the question is identical). Time

considerations and/or volume, among other things, may impact a Stations'

desire or ability to respond to such inquiries from time to time.

Notwithstanding anything communicated by any Station employee in

connection with any such inquiry, such information shall not be binding

on Station (the sole determining information related to this Contest is

as set forth in the applicable contest rules) and shall not be deemed to

be providing any type of improper assistance or advantage to any

particular contestant over another. Any attempt by Stations to respond

to an inquiry will be in the context of providing good customer service

only and, in some instances, to address technical issues/problems.


34. Station Management shall be the sole arbiters in all matters

relating to the contest and in the interpretation of contest rules.
