b.                  On each weekday throughout the Promotion, five (5) potential nationwide prize winners will be randomly selected – (i) one (1) between the hours of 5:00 a.m. PT / 8:00 a.m. ET and 5:15 a.m. PT / 8:15 a.m. ET.  (ii) one (1) between the hours of 8:00 a.m. PT / 11:00 a.m. ET and 8:15 a.m. PT / 11:15 a.m. ET.  (iii) one (1) between the hours of 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET and 10:15 a.m. PT / 1:15 p.m. ET.  (iv) one (1) between the hours of 1:00 p.m. PT / 4:00 p.m. ET and 1:15 p.m. PT / 4:15 p.m. ET.  (v) one (1) between the hours of 3 p.m. PT / 6:00 p.m. ET and 3:15 p.m. PT / 6:15 p.m. ET.  A total of one hundred fifty (150) Prizes will be awarded during the Promotion Period.  Beasley Media Group participating stations may also announce exact times that future Cues will be played.  Station listeners will be entering along with listeners from other stations around the country who will also receive the Key Word announcements at similar times and will be entering before the same Entry Period deadline for each Cue.

c.                   Each entry window shall close at the start of the fifteenth (15th) minute after the top of the hour in which the Cue is announced, regardless of when the Cue airs (each, an “Entry Period”).  Each participating station reserves the right to announce the Cue between the first one (1) and fifteen (15) minutes of the hour.  Following each Entry Period, Beasley Media will conduct a random drawing from among all mobile phone and online entrants who provided the correct Key Word nationwide during that Entry Period (the “Entry Period Pool”), and one (1) potential nationwide $1,000 cash prize winner will be randomly selected and called by Beasley Media promptly following his/her selection.  Only one (1) entry per person, per Cue is permitted regardless of the method of entry.  The randomly selected Contestant must be available at the time of Beasley Media’s call to be eligible to win the prize.  Once reached by phone, the randomly selected Contestant will be deemed the potential $1,000 cash prize winner (upon confirmation of eligibility).  At the time of the call, the potential prize winner will be required to provide all information requested to verify eligibility.  Information requested includes their full name, complete address (including zip code), day and evening phone numbers and date of birth.  Beasley Media will attempt to call the randomly selected entrant five (5) times shortly following the random drawing for the applicable Entry Period.  No voicemail message will be left.  If the potential prize winner fails to answer the calls or is disconnected or is otherwise found to be ineligible, the prize will be forfeited and the Station will randomly select another entrant from the same Entry Period Pool to be the potential $1,000 prize winner.  This will continue until the $1,000 prize is awarded in that hour (time permitting).  By participating in the Promotion entrants consent to Beasley Media contacting them by phone at the telephone number from which the mobile entry was received or as indicated by the entrant on the online entry form.  Any and all fees arising out of the transmission of or receipt of a mobile call shall solely be the responsibility of the entrant.  Message and data rates may apply per the entrant’s carrier.  By participating in the Promotion via mobile entry, entrants acknowledge that text messages are connected and transmitted through third party providers; Beasley Media does not guarantee, and shall not be responsible for, the connection or timeliness of any such text messages.

d.                  To enter via Mobile Phone/Device:  To enter by mobile phone, upon hearing the Cue, text the day’s Key Word to 40772 during the Cue’s Entry Period.  Message and data rates may apply.  Promotion Entities are not responsible for any fees or charges incurred for and associated with mobile entries.  The text message entry method is designed to work with most of the major wireless carriers in the United States, but the Promotion Entities make no guarantee that any particular wireless service provider will participate.  Entrants should check their phone’s features to see if they have that capability.  Entrants should consult their wireless service provider’s pricing plan for details.  Entry by text message will not improve your chance of winning.  By entering via text, each entrant consents to receive up to five (5) notification phone calls on their provided phone number if randomly selected as a potential winner.  Further, by entering by text message, entrants agree to accept all applicable charges associated therewith.

e.                   To enter via Online Entry:  To enter online, upon hearing the Cue visit the Station’s website and follow the links and instructions to enter the Promotion and complete and submit the online entry form during the respective Entry Period following the Cue.  By entering online, each entrant consents to receive up to five (5) notification phone calls on their provided phone number if randomly selected as a potential winner.  Internet entries will be deemed made by the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of entry.  The authorized account holder is the natural person who is assigned to the email address by an internet access provider, online service provider or other organization that is responsible for assigning an email address or the domain associated with the submitted email address.  Multiple participants are not permitted to share the same email address.  Online entries submitted may not be acknowledged or returned.

f.                   Entrants may enter only once per Entry Period, regardless of the method of entry (i.e., only one (1) entry per person per Cue).  Additional entries will be disqualified by the Promotion Entities solely at their discretion.  A listener may only win one $1,000 cash prize during the Promotion, and only one $1,000 cash prize winner per household is permitted during the Promotion Period.  For this Promotion only, restrictions that would prevent a listener from winning if he/she had won another recent Beasley Media station contest or promotion will not apply.  Use of any device to automate entry is prohibited.  Proof of submission of an entry shall not be deemed proof of receipt by Beasley Media.  Beasley Media’s computer is the official time keeping device for the Promotion.  Any attempt by any Contestant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different identities, registrations or any other methods will void that participant’s entries and that Contestant may be disqualified.

g.                  In the event of an equipment malfunction, Beasley Media reserves the right to award prize to a randomly selected entrant from the immediately prior Entry Period pool, except that any such Contestant who was awarded the prize for such Entry Period will be excluded.  Given the volume of participation, Contestants may experience an inability to access website to enter.

h.                  Online listeners to streamed broadcasts may experience a lag in transmissions due to buffering limitations. Entrants should not rely on streamed broadcasts to participate in any contest as they may be disadvantaged when participating in on-air contests.  Entrants are encouraged to listen to the Station for the Cues on-air.  The Promotion Entities are not responsible for online streaming delays or outages.

7.                  PRIZES: No more than the advertised number of prizes shall be awarded. A prize may not be sold, traded, or commissioned, and is not exchangeable, transferable, or redeemable for cash except in the Promotion Entities’ sole discretion. Prize details and availability are subject to change.

The prize is awarded if properly claimed according to the Rules and if there are sufficient eligible entries. All other costs and expenses related to prize acceptance and use not specified herein as being provided are the sole responsibility of winner(s). If the winner is disqualified or is found to be ineligible for the contest, Beasley Media reserves the right to determine an alternate winner or not to award the prize, at its sole discretion. Each Prize is $1,000 cash (in the form of a check made payable to the prize winner upon confirmation of his/her eligibility).  The Station may award up to one hundred and fifty (150) total Prizes for an approximate total retail value for the Promotion of $150,000.  Each cash prize will be issued as a check payable to the order of the prize winner upon verification of eligibility and upon timely receipt of all completed prize winner paperwork.  Checks will be processed and mailed within four to eight weeks upon verification of eligibility and receipt of all completed prize winner paperwork.  All taxes, including but not limited to, federal, state, and local taxes, and any other costs and expenses associated with the acceptance and use of a prize are solely the responsibility of the winner.  The prize winners will each be issued an IRS Form 1099 for the value of their respective prize(s).

8.                  WINNER SELECTION:  Potential $1,000 cash prize winners will be determined as described above and will be notified by telephone beginning approximately fifteen (15) minutes following each Entry Period.  Listeners from approximately forty five (45) radio stations in multiple radio markets across the United States will be participating at the same time(s).  Odds of being selected as a $1,000 cash prize winner depend on the combined number of entries received from all markets.  Decisions of Beasley Media with respect to the Promotion are final.

9.                  WINNER NOTIFICATION:  Beasley Media may notify potential prize winners by telephone with follow up correspondence by email, U.S. Mail and/or courier.
