- No purchase is necessary to enter or win. A purchase will not increase your chance of winning. Void where prohibited. All federal, state, and local regulations apply.
Eligibility. This Contest is open only to legal U.S. residents, excluding Florida and New York residents, age eighteen (18) years or older at the time of entry with a valid Social Security number and who reside in the Station’s Designated Market Area (“DMA”) as defined by Nielsen Audio, who have not won a prize from the Station in the last 90 days or a prize valued at $500 or more in the last 180 days, and whose immediate family members or household members have not won a prize from the Station in the last 90 days or a prize valued at $500 or more in the last 180 days.

Employees of Cumulus Media Holdings Inc., its parent company, affiliates, related entities and subsidiaries, promotional sponsors, prize providers, advertising agencies, other radio stations serving the Station’s DMA, and the immediate family members and household members of all such employees are not eligible to participate. The term “immediate family members” includes spouses, parents and step-parents, siblings and step-siblings, and children and stepchildren. The term “household members” refers to people who share the same residence at least three (3) months out of the year. The Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Participation constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional agreement to these Official Rules and Station’s decisions, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Contest. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.
The Contest name is for promotional purposes only, and winners will not actually be placed on the Station’s “payroll” or become Station employees.
- Contest Period. The Contest will begin at 12:01am ET on July 11, 2019 and will run through 11:59pm ET on September 18, 2019 (the “Contest Period”). The Station’s computer is the official time keeping device for this Contest.
- How to Enter. To enter:
(i) On-line: Enter to win on the WGRR.COM website. Click the Payroll Payout button to register to enter. Listen to the Station weekdays at or around 8:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. during the Contest Period. When the Station announces a registered listener’s name, that person should call the Station back at 513-749-1035 within ten minutes (00:10:00), as determined by the Station in its sole and exclusive discretion, to claim their spot and to potentially be deemed the “Hourly Prize Winner.” Failure to call in within the ten (10) minute timeframe will result in immediate disqualification. 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 registered name announced later than listeners listening to the Station’s analog over-the-air signal. As a result, the odds of an online listener entering this Contest on-air may be diminished.
- Winner Selection. On or about 8:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. ET weekdays on July 11, 2019 through September 18, 2019, Station will select a one (1) registered listener’s name at or around 8:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. weekdays, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday for a total of up to (4) four names announced per day during the Contest Period for a total of One-hundred eighty (180) registered names being announced for the “Hourly Prize” of a One-Hundred ($100) pre-paid cash card prize in a drawing from among all valid entries received by the Station during the contest period from WGRR. On Thursdays during the Contest Period, Station will select a one (1) registered listener’s name at or around 8:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. for the “Hourly Prize” of a Five-Hundred ($500) pre-paid cash card prize When the Station announces a registered listener’s name, that person should call the Station back at 513-749-1035 within ten minutes (00:10:00), as determined by the Station in its sole and exclusive discretion, to claim their spot and to potentially be deemed the “Hourly Prize Winner” (subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these rules). Failure to call in within the ten (10) minute timeframe will result in immediate disqualification. This process will be repeated the subsequent hour, and another name and employer will be announced on-air by the Station. If that named entrant does not call the Station back within the ten (10) minute allotment, as determined in the Station’s sole discretion, the previous Hourly Winner will win another One-hundred dollar pre-paid cash card ($100 Hourly Prize on Monday’s, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.) On Thursdays, if that named entrant does not call the Station back within the ten (10) minute allotment, as determined in the Station’s sole discretion, the previous Hourly Winner will win another Five-hundred dollar pre-paid cash card ($500 Hourly Prize.) This process will continue until another entrant’s name and employer are announced and the selected entrant calls back within the ten (10) minute allotment, as determined in the Station’s sole discretion. No Hourly Prizes will be awarded between 4:30 p.m.-7:59 a.m. during the Contest Period or on weekends during the Contest Period.
