Station disclaims all liability for any delays, mis delivery, loss, or failure in the delivery of any item sent by mail, courier, express, electronic transmission, or other delivery method. Station is not responsible for mechanical, technical, electronic, communications, telephone, computer, hardware or software malfunctions or failures of any kind, including: failed, incomplete, garbled or delayed transmission of online entries, traffic congestion on telephone lines, the Internet or at any website or lost or unavailable network connections which may limit an online entrant’s ability to participate in the contest, and any injury or damage to entrant’s or any other person’s computer related to or resulting from participating in or downloading any information necessary to participate in this contest. Due to the time delay that exists between the Station’s over-the-air signal and any online webcast, listeners who listen to the Station online may hear Promotion information later than listeners listening to the Station’s over-the-air signal. As a result, the odds of an online listener winning Promotion may be diminished.

Station shall not be responsible for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, inappropriate or misdirected entries, all of which will be disqualified.

Contest winners will be determined according to the method specified by Station at Station’s sole and exclusive discretion. The potential winner must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements.

Potential winner(s) will be selected at random from all eligible entries by November 16th, 2022, 11:00AM, EDT.

The potential winner(s) will be contacted via email using the email address provided with the entry and will be awarded the prize subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the terms of these rules.

If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to provide the affidavit of eligibility and/or the liability/publicity release within the required time period, potential winner forfeits the prize.
