Any individual who enters, (each such individual in hereinafter referred to as an “Entrant”) attempts to enter or in any way participates or attempts to participate in any contest, sweepstakes or giveaways (“Contest”) conducted by WGLM-FM or WGLM-AM (hereinafter referred to as the “Sponsor”) agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions provided in these Official General Contest Rules (“General Rules”), as well as by Sponsor’s interpretations of these General Rules which are final and binding in all matters relating to any Contest. Some Contests will have specific rules developed for them (“Specific Contest Rules”). In the event there is a discrepancy or inconsistency between these General Rules and the Specific Contest Rules, the Specific Contest Rules shall control. Rules are subject to change without notice! On-line Entries: If a Contest accepts web entries, Entrants must accurately complete all required fields or the entry will be deemed incomplete and will not qualify. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY: Unless otherwise noted, no purchase is necessary to enter or win a prize. A purchase will also not improve your chances of winning.

Age and Parental Consent Requirements: Unless otherwise specified, each Contest is open to only to individuals who (i) are legal U.S. residents, (ii) who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry and (iii) who reside within the participating station’s listening area. Employees, contractors, officers and directors of Sponsor, its affiliates, parent companies, subsidiaries, divisions, suppliers, distributors and advertising, promotional and judging agencies, the station, and any third party prize provider(s) and/or prize fulfillment service (collectively, the “Contest Entities”); individuals employed by any sponsors, radio and televisions station; and members of the immediate families (parents, brothers and sisters, husband or wife and children) are not eligible to participate in the Contest or win the prize. Eligibility Frequency Limits: The Sponsor may set limitations on how frequently an individual can be eligible to win more than one prize within a specified time period. For national sweepstakes/contests, an individual may win only once (1) every Thirty (30) days. However, the same individual may not win more than one trip to a specific event with in a Ninety (90) day time span.

Generally, these will involve one or some of the following: (A) online entry (B) on-air entry (C) text to enter or (D) content submission or skill contest. Warning: Online listeners to streamed broadcasts may experience a lag in transmissions due to buffering limitations. Listen to the station for the times to play and how to enter or participate in a specific contest. The dates, times, entry methods, winner selection and prizes will vary with each station giveaway, as determined by the station and as announced. Specific Entry Method Rules:
(A) On-line Entries: If a Contest accepts web entries, Entrants must accurately complete all required fields or the entry will be deemed incomplete and will not qualify.
(B) On-Air Entries: The Entrant must be the designated caller and/or answer the question correctly, from all callers calling-in to the participating stations, to the phone number announced; the designated caller, if eligible, will be declared a potential winner.

Listen to the station for details on specific times to play. The dates and times of station participation may vary and shall be determined or changed without notice solely by the individual participating station and announced on air by the local participating stations, at their sole discretion may or may not choose to air all playtimes due to programming obligations and other factors. The Sponsor assumes no responsibility for entrants not making timely phone or guessing incorrect answers calls to the station or other timed entry as a result of the delays in the Internet stream or human error.
