The Stations will conduct The Lionel Richie Experience Contest (the “Contest”) substantially as
described in these rules, and by participating, each participant agrees as follows:
1. No purchase is necessary. Void where prohibited. All federal, state, and local regulations
2. Only legal U.S. residents age 21 or older with a valid Social Security number at the time of
entry are eligible to participate in Station contests. Employees, agents, representatives, or
affiliates of the Stations, Cumulus Media Inc., its subsidiaries and affiliates, participating
sponsors, other radio stations, television stations and print advertising companies serving the
metro area, and their immediate family members and household members are not eligible to
participate. The term “immediate family members” includes spouses, parents, siblings,
grandparents, children, grandchildren and cohabiting significant others.
3. An individual may win an on-going contest only once per six-month period unless otherwise
specifically stated. An individual may win other seasonal or one-time contests only once for the
duration of the contest. The Station reserves the right to limit the number of times an individual
may enter a contest or drawing.
4. The contest will begin on Monday, April 30, 2012 and will run through Friday, May 25,
2012 (the “Contest Period”).
5. To enter this Contest, listen to the Station in your listening area weekdays during the Contest
Period. When your Station plays the “cue-to-call” sounder, listeners should call the Station at the
number provided by the Station’s on-air personality. Caller ten (10) to the Station, as determined
by the Station in its sole discretion, will win a Lionel Richie CD and be qualified to win the
grand prize. Each Station will qualify total of 20 listeners during the Contest Period, for a total
of 540 listeners from the twenty-seven participating Stations. Time Delay Between Over-the-
Air Analog Signal and Internet Broadcast: Due to the time delay that exists between the
Station’s analog over-the-air signal and the Station’s online webcast, listeners who listen to the
Station online may hear the cue to call later than listeners listening to the Station’s analog overthe-
air signal. As a result, the odds of an online listener winning this Contest may be diminished.
6. On Tuesday, May 29, 2012, the Stations will be randomly select one (1) qualifier from all
eligible qualifiers as the potential grand prize winner. If it is determined that the candidate is not
eligible to receive the grand prize, in the Station’s sole judgment and discretion, another qualifier
will be randomly selected for eligibility consultation and this process will continue on until such
time as an eligible candidate is found. In the unlikely event that no candidates are found to meet
the specifications, then the prize will go un-awarded. In the event of a tie, the winner will be
determined by and at the Station’s sole discretion.
7. One grand prize will be awarded. The grand prize package is a three day/two night trip for
two adults to Los Angeles, CA for an intimate acoustic performance by Lionel Richie on July 27,
2012, consisting of round-trip coach airfare to/from Los Angeles, CA; two (2) nights singleroom,
double occupancy hotel accommodations in Los Angeles, CA; a meet-and-greet with
Lionel Richie; and tickets to the performance. Winner and guest must travel on the same
itinerary. All expenses and fees associated with the grand prize not expressly included in the
foregoing prize description are the sole responsibility of the winner. Total grand prize package is
valued at $3,000.
8. Odds of winning depend on a number of factors including the number of eligible entries
received and listeners participating at any given time.
9. All State, Local, Federal and or other taxes, duties, tariffs, title fees, licensing fees, or other
fees for prizes awarded become the sole responsibility of the winner. All those who win a prize
