The 263 participating radio stations are identified below (each a “Station” and collectively the “Stations”).
Sponsor will conduct the Cumulus Radio’s “Call-To-Win” 2015American Music Awards LA Getaway (the “Sweepstakes”) substantially as described in these rules, and by participating, each participant agrees as follows:
No purchase is necessary. Void where prohibited. All federal, state, and local regulations apply.
Eligibility. Only legal U.S. residents age 18 or older with a valid Social Security number at the time of entry who reside in a participating Station’s Designated Market Area (“DMA”), as defined by Nielsen, are eligible to participate in this Sweepstakes. Employees, agents, representatives, or affiliates of the Stations, Cumulus Media Holdings Inc., dick clark productions, inc., American Broadcasting Companies, Inc., and each of their respective parent companies, subsidiaries and affiliates, other radio stations, television stations and print advertising companies serving a Station’s listening area, and their immediate family members and household members are not eligible to participate. The term “immediate family members” includes spouses, parents and step-parents, siblings and step-siblings, and children and stepchildren. The term “household members” refers to people who share the same residence at least three (3) months out of the year. The Sweepstakes is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Participation constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and Sponsor’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.
Sweepstakes Period. The Sweepstakes will begin at 12:01am ET on Thursday, November 5, 2015 and will run through 11:59 pm ET on Thursday, November 12, 2015 (the “Sweepstakes Period”). Sponsor’s computer is the official time keeping device for this Sweepstakes.
How to Enter. To qualify to win this Sweepstakes, listen to the Station in your DMA each weekday during the Sweepstakes Period. When the Station plays the “cue-to-call” sounder, listeners should call the Station at the number provided by the Station’s on-air personality. Caller number ten (10) to the Station, as determined by the Station in its sole discretion, will be qualified to win. An individual may qualify only one time, and only one qualifier per household. Each Station will qualify eighteen (18) listeners during the Sweepstakes Period for a total of 4,734 qualifiers from all 263 stations. Time Delay Between Over-the-Air Analog Signal and Internet Broadcast: Due to the time delay that exists between a Station’s analog over-the-air signal and a Station’s online webcast, listeners who listen to a Station online may hear the cue to call later than listeners listening to a Station’s analog over-the-air signal. As a result, the odds of an online listener winning this Sweepstakes may be diminished.
Winner Selection. On or about 10:00 am ET on Friday, November 13, 2015, Sponsor will randomly select one (1) qualifier for the Grand Prize in a random drawing from among all 4,734 listeners qualified during the Sweepstakes Period from all 263 participating Stations combined. The winning entrant will be contacted using the email address and/or telephone number provided at the time of qualifying and may be awarded the prize (subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these rules). Sponsor’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of the potential winner is final and binding in all matters related to the Sweepstakes. Failure to respond to the initial verification contact within three (3) days of notification will result in disqualification.
Verification of Potential Winner. POTENTIAL SWEEPSTAKES WINNER IS SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE SWEEPSTAKES. The potential winner must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. The potential winner will be notified by email and/or telephone call after the date of random drawing and must respond to Sponsor’s initial contact within twenty-four (24) hours or potential winner will forfeit the prize and Sponsor will award the prize to an alternate winner. The potential winner will be required to sign and return to Sponsor, within three (3) days of acceptance, an affidavit of eligibility and a liability/publicity release (except where prohibited) in order to claim his/her prize, if applicable. If a potential winner fails to sign and return the affidavit of eligibility and/or the liability/publicity release within the required three (3) day time period, potential winner forfeits prize. In the event that the potential winner of a sweepstakes prize is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor may award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among all remaining eligible qualifiers. A winner who accepts a prize cannot rescind their acceptance and/or return the prize.
