LISTEN & CALL TO WIN CONTEST RULES
The New 93Q
1. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR TO WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. ALL FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL AND MUNICIPAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS APPLY. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.
Subject to the additional restrictions below, the on air contest (the “Sweepstakes”) is open to legal U.S. residents (excluding Puerto Rico) who are 13 years or older (or the correct age limit depending on the prize) at the time of entry and residents of the state of Texas. Employees of Cox Media Group (“Sponsor”), and each of its respective affiliated companies, subsidiaries, and advertising and promotional agencies, and the family members of, and any persons domiciled with, any such employees, are not eligible to enter or to win. The term “family members” includes spouses, parents, grandparents, siblings, children, grandchildren and in-laws, regardless of where they live.
3. How To Enter.
On Air Entry: To enter, listen to the The New 93Q radio broadcast during the Sweepstakes Period. Every day during the Sweepstakes Period, Sponsor will announce the cue to call. When you hear the announcement, call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line at 713-496-9393 and to try to be the announced caller. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules, the designated and announced number (#) person to call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line, as solely
determined by Sponsor, will become a finalist/ winner. To qualify as a finalist/ winner, (a) you must be listening to the Show at the time the announcement is broadcast; (b) you must be declared by Sponsor to be the designated and announce number (#) person to call Sponsor’s Sweepstakes Line at 713-496-9393; and (c) you must comply with all other terms and conditions of these Official Rules. Telephone calls will be
taken by Sweepstakes operators in the order they are received, and the operators will count the number of calls received after each on-air Sweepstakes announcement to determine the designated number (#) caller. The determinations of Sponsor and Sweepstakes operators will be final and binding in all respects.
Enter as often as you like, provided that automatic telephone dialing equipment or other software or computer assisted dialing equipment is prohibited and will result in disqualification. Listeners accessing Sponsor’s radio station audio via IP connections like website-based streaming or mobile devices are welcome to enter. However, Sponsor cannot be responsible for delays in electronic transmission of station audio to IP devices. By entering this Sweepstakes, listeners acknowledge and agree to this specific provision of these Official Rules.
In addition, Sponsor will not be responsible for loss of service to the Sweepstakes Line or for a participant’s failure to reach the Sweepstakes Line due to malfunction of any network or system, congestion, any technical or human error, failures or malfunctions of any kind, including the congestion, overload, busy signals, or any other factor that may prevent an individual from completing his/her phone
call. In the event of interruption of power or telephone service to Sponsor during a call-in period of the Sweepstakes prior to accepting the designated number (#) caller, or a change in programming that results in Sponsor’s inability to air a call-in opportunity, Sponsor will not replay the affected call-in opportunity and the number of Finalists/ winner opportunities awarded in this Sweepstakes will be reduced accordingly. If an announced number (#) caller is ineligible, or fails to comply with any term of condition of these Official Rules, that caller will be disqualified and no
finalist/ winner will be selected during that call-in period.
Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entries by persons who submit false or misleading entry information or who Sponsor determines to be tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Sweepstakes.
