hours, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) 9:00am to 5:00pm, and on the Station’s

    1. HOW TO ENTER

    No purchase is necessary. Contests are void where prohibited and are subject to all

    federal, state and local laws.

    a.  Unless otherwise noted, one entry per person will be accepted. In the event multiple

         entries are allowed, each entry must be submitted individually. Mechanically reproduced

         or software generated entries of any kind will not be accepted. Any materials submitted

         become the property of Station and will not be returned.

    b.  Some contests may require entrants to log in and enter via their account on a third party

         social media website, such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. In the case an entrant does

         not have an account on such a website, entrants may create a free account.

    c.  Any contest conducted on such a website is in no way sponsored, endorsed or

         administered by, or associated with the website. By submission of an entry, an entrant

         releases the third party social media website from any responsibility or liability of the

         contest’s administration, prizes or promotion. Entrants are providing entry information to

         the Station and not to any third party social media website.

    d.  By participating in any Station-conducted contest, entrants agree to be bound by these

         General Contest Rules. Failure to comply with these General Contest Rules may result in

         disqualification at the sole discretion of the Station.

    e.  Entrants are required to provide truthful information as part of their entry and the Station

         will reject and delete any entry that it discovers to be false or fraudulent. The Station will

         disqualify any entry from entrants who do not meet the eligibility requirements and the

         Station will also delete any online entry if it learns that it was submitted by any entrants

         under the age of 13 in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.

     

    1. FOR ALL ON-AIR CONTESTS:

    a.  To enter on-air contests, entrants must listen for the cue to call on the Station during

         specified dates and times for the announcement of the cue to call. Cues to call may

         include specific contest sounders, a “song of the day” aired in a specific hour as

         instructed by the Station, or the announcement of an entrant’s name which may require

         him/her to call the Station. Upon hearing the cue to call, the designated number caller

         (as announced on-air at the time of the cue to call) to the Station contest line will be

         deemed the winner of the prize, upon confirmation of eligibility. Station may also

         require additional information from callers in order to win the prize such as answering a

         trivia question correctly or identifying the title and/or artist of a certain song. Station

         will deem callers’ answers correct in their sole and absolute discretion. Calls may be

         recorded and/or broadcast on-air. In the event that the designated caller is disconnected

         prior to completion of the call, the next caller taken may be deemed the prize winner. If

         any initially-selected winner is later deemed ineligible to receive the prize, the Station

         reserves the right (but is not obligated) to air one or more additional “cue to call” at any

         time during the Contest period to award the forfeited prize.

    b.  The Station cannot be held responsible for allegations of telephone malfunctions. The

         Station is not responsible for callers lost or disconnected before completing his or her

         its discretion, select the next eligible caller received to win/participate. The Station is

         not responsible for any lost connections, miscommunications, failed computer or
