Contest and Promotion Rules for WUSN-FM


Unless otherwise specified by Radio Station WUSN-FM (the “Station”), these rules
cover routine contests and promotions conducted by the Station. These rules may be
amended by separate specific rules for major contests or promotions conducted by the
Station or its sponsors.

The contest or promotion (the “Promotion”) will take place during the dates and times
specified in the official rules of the Promotion (the “Promotion Period”) or as announced
on-air. The Station may change the dates and/or terms of the Promotion without prior
notice. Any material changes will be broadcast on the Station and, if applicable, posted
on its website located at

Promotions conducted on-air that require telephone responses to “cues to call” are only
official when heard on-air via radio. Due to delays with the Station’s online streaming of
its broadcast signal, listeners to the online stream may not be able to participate in or be
disadvantaged in participating in certain Promotions.

To be eligible to enter or participate in the Promotion, listeners must follow the
instructions set forth in the official rules of the Promotion or as announced on-air and
must fulfill all of the eligibility requirements of the Promotion. Unless otherwise
specified, the Promotion is open to all listeners of the Station who are legal U.S.
residents, 18 years of age or older and who live in the Chicagoland Metropolitan area.
Employees of the Station, its licensee, the licensee’s parent, subsidiary and affiliated
entities, Station’s advertising and promotional agencies, its participating sponsors, other
radio stations in the Chicagoland metropolitan area and the members of their immediate
families and/or households are ineligible to participate or win. Listeners are eligible to
win a prize in an on-air Promotion conducted by the Station only once per week,
beginning on Monday and ending on Sunday. Only one winner per household is
permitted in an on-air contest per week. For on-air Promotions, there is no limit to the
number of times a listener may attempt to call-in or text; however a listener may only
qualify once.

Entrants are required to provide truthful information and the Station will reject and delete
any entry that it discovers to be false or fraudulent. The Station will disqualify any entry
from individuals who do not meet the eligibility requirements, and the Station will also
delete any online entry knowingly received from persons under the age of 13 in
compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.

Promotion prizes and their values will be indicated when the Station announces the
Promotion. Prizes will be sent via regular mail or UPS. The winner assumes the risk of
the prize’s loss and the Station will not be responsible for the safe arrival of the prize or
prize certificate. Prizes may be claimed during regular business hours (between
9:00am and 4:30pm, Monday through Friday). Promotion winner(s) will be required to
present valid government-issued photo identification and provide their complete
address, date of birth and phone number to claim a prize. If a Promotion is open to
entrants under the age of 18 and a winner is under the age of 18, a parent or legal
guardian must claim the prize. Failure to comply with these requirements will result in
the forfeiture of the prize. A winner will forfeit any prize or prize certificate not claimed
within fourteen (14) days (or sooner for time sensitive prizes) of winning. Unless
otherwise specified or required by law, if a prize is not claimed, no alternate winner will
be selected and the prize will become the property of the Station. There is no
substitution, transfer or cash equivalent for prizes, except that the Station may, at its
sole discretion, substitute prizes of comparable value or cash. Each prize is expressly
limited to the item(s) announced by the Station and does not include taxes, gratuities or
any other expenses. Other restrictions may apply.

Decisions of the Station’s management with respect to the Promotion are final.
Potential winner(s) will be selected and notified of their prize in the manner announced
by the Station. Promotion winner(s) must execute and return any required Affidavit of
Eligibility and/or Release of Liability Prize Acceptance Form within fourteen (14) days of
winning or being notified of winning (or sooner for time sensitive prizes) or prize will be
forfeited and an alternate winner may be selected. If a potential winner cannot be
contacted, fails to sign and return the required affidavit of eligibility and/or
liability/publicity release within the required time period, or if a prize or prize notification
is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize.
Payments of all federal, state and local taxes related to the award of a prize are solely
the responsibility of the winner of the prize. The winner will be required to complete and
submit an IRS Form W-9 with the winner’s full Social Security Number or the equivalent
for receipt of any prize valued at $600 or more or for any prizes awarded by the Station
(or any other CBS Radio station in Station’s market) in a calendar year with an
aggregate value of $600 or more and such winnings will be reported to the IRS. Failure
to submit a complete W-9 or equivalent will result in forfeiture of the prize.
By participating in the Promotion, the winner(s) agree to have his or her name, voice
and likeness used in any advertising or broadcasting material related to such
Promotion, without further compensation, and (where permitted by law) to sign a
publicity release confirming such consent prior to acceptance of the prize.

Prior to awarding any prize or prize certificate, the Station in its sole discretion may
require the winner of such prize (and his or her travel companion(s), if any) to sign a
liability release, which holds harmless the Station, its licensee, its parent, subsidiary,
and affiliated entities, their respective officers, shareholders, directors, employees,
agents and representatives and all of their successors and assigns against any and all
claims or liability arising directly or indirectly from the prize or participation in the
Promotion. The Station is not responsible for (i) lost, stolen, mangled, misdirected,
postage due, illegible, incomplete or late entries; (ii) telephone or mobile service
outages, delays, busy signals, facsimile transmission errors, equipment malfunctions
and any other technological difficulties that may prevent an individual from completing
his/her telephone call or from sending a text message (if applicable, message and data
rates may apply, and the Station is not responsible for any fees incurred by an entrant
for this method of entry); or (iii) entries not received due to difficulty accessing the
internet, service outage or delays, computer difficulties or other technical difficulties.
Station reserves the right to cancel, terminate or modify the Promotion as it deems
necessary if it is not capable of completion as planned, including, without limitation, as a
result of infection by computer virus, bugs, tampering, unauthorized intervention or
technical failures of any sort. The Station reserves the right to make changes in the
rules of the Promotion, including, without limitation, the substitution of a prize or
equivalent value, which will become effective upon announcement. If due to
circumstances beyond the control of the Station, any event related to the Promotion or
prize is delayed, rescheduled, postponed, cancelled or has a change of venue, the
Station reserves the right, but is not obligated, to cancel or modify the Promotion and
shall not be required to award a substitute prize. The Station is not responsible for
typographical or other errors in the printing, the offering or the administration of the
Promotion, or in the announcement of a prize.

The Station, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to disqualify any person tampering
with the entry process or the operation of the Station’s website. Failure to comply with
the rules of the Promotion may result in a contestant’s disqualification and/or forfeiture
of any prize or prizes. If the Station makes a good faith determination that an entrant
has cheated or committed fraudulent activity in connection with a Promotion, the Station
reserves the right to disqualify that entrant from entering and/or winning future
