Roman’s College of Country Knowledge Win the Cash Contest



    1. These rules govern the Roman’s College of Country Knowledge Contest Promotion (the “Promotion”), which is being conducted by WUSN-FM (the “Station”).  The Promotion begins October 10, 2016 and ends on December 30th, 2016 (the “Promotion Period”).
  1. To enter the Promotion, entrant may enter by phone between 6:00AM Central Time (“CT”) and 9:59AM CT weekdays except national holidays between October 10th, 2016 and December 30th, 2016 (the “Entry Period”) as follows:

To enter on-air, listen to the Station each weekday between 6:00AM CT and 9:59AM CT during the Entry Period for the announcement of the cue to call to participate in the Roman’s College of Country Knowledge segment.  Upon hearing the cue to call, the correct caller (as announced by the on-air personality prior to the cue to call) to get through to the Station contest line at 312-591-9696 will have the opportunity to play the Roman’s College of Country Knowledge Game and will have a chance to win a Grand Prize, upon confirmation of eligibility. At the time of entrant’s call, entrant will be required to provide all information requested including entrant’s full name, complete address (including zip code), day and evening phone numbers and date of birth in order to be eligible to win.  P.O. Boxes are not permitted.  In the event that the selected caller is disconnected or is found to be ineligible, the next eligible caller who successfully makes it through on the call-in line and completes the call will have the opportunity to participate in the Roman’s College of Country Knowledge segment.

  1. Selected callers will be asked to answer five (5) questions on country music trivia as designated by Dougie Stylz with answers verified the day before by the Programming Director.  The caller will answer the five (5) questions first while Justin Roman leaves the on-air studio so he cannot hear the questions or answers.  Justin Roman will then come back into the studio to have the opportunity to answer the same five (5) questions.  The caller will be deemed a Grand Prize winner if he or she gets more correct answers than Justin Roman.  In the event of a tie, Justin Roman is deemed the winner.  The amount of the Prize will be $100. If a designated caller gets more questions correct than Justin Roman, the designated caller will win the cash prize pending verification of eligibility.  If a designated caller answers fewer questions correctly than Justin Roman, the caller will not win the prize.
  1. Due to delays in the online streaming of the Station’s broadcast signal, listeners to the online stream may not be able to participate in or may be disadvantaged in participating in on-air contests.
