Official Online Contest Rules

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCE OF WINNING. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED.

Unless otherwise specified by Radio Station WXRT-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 93XRT.COM.

Promotions conducted on-air that require telephone responses to “cues to call” are only official when heard on-air via radio. At the time of their call, callers will be required to provide all information requested including their full name, complete address (including zip code), day and evening phone numbers and date of birth in order to be eligible to win.  In the event that the selected caller is disconnected or is found to be ineligible, the next eligible caller that successfully makes it through on the call-in line and completes their call will be a winner.  There is no limit to the number of times a listener may attempt to call in to win, but a listener may be a winner only once.  There will be up to a total of winners selected on-air during the Promotion dates.  The Station is not responsible for telephone service outages, delays, busy signals, equipment malfunctions and any other technological difficulties that may prevent an individual from completing his/her telephone call.  Due to delays in the WXRT online streaming of its broadcast signal, listeners to the online stream may not be able to participate in or may be disadvantaged in participating in on-air contests.

 

To participate in the Promotion, you must listen to WXRT-FM during promotion period for the on-air personality to announce the cue to text.  Upon hearing the cue to text [or between a fixed set of times/dates], Listeners must text the keyword announced on air to winning number to enter the Promotion.  The Station is not responsible for telephone service outages, delays, equipment malfunctions and any other technological difficulties that may prevent an individual from sending a text message.  Standard text messaging fees may apply, and the Station is not responsible for any fees incurred by an entrant for this method of entry.
