CBS Radio’s Stars & Strings National Text-To-Win Contest
(October 2017)
a. These rules govern the CBS Radio Stars & Strings National Contest (“Promotion”), which is
being conducted by CBS Radio Inc. and its participating radio stations (the “Stations”),
including KILT-FM (the “Station”) (CBS Radio Inc. and the Stations shall be collectively
deemed “CBS Radio”). The Promotion, known as “Stars & Strings National Text-To-Win
Contest” on the Station, will begin on Monday, October 23, 2017, and will run through
Friday, October 27, 2017, weekdays between the hours of 9:00 am CT., and 5:20pm CT
(the “Promotion Dates”).
a. The Promotion is open only to legal residents of the 48 contiguous United States (including
the District of Columbia) who are 21 years of age or older at time of entry. Contestants will
be competing with listeners from approximately 11 Stations in multiple radio markets across
the United States. Employees, officers, directors and agents of CBS Radio, the Stations,
Vibes, and Promotion sponsors (if any), and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries
and affiliates, the Stations’ advertising and promotion agencies, and participating sponsors
or prize suppliers (collectively, the “Promotion Entities”), other radio stations in the
metropolitan areas of the participating stations and the members of their immediate families
(spouses, parents, children, and siblings, regardless of where they reside) and those living
in the same household of each (whether related or not), are ineligible to enter or win. Void

b. Entrants are required to provide truthful information and CBS Radio will reject and delete
any entry that it discovers to be false or fraudulent. CBS Radio will disqualify any entry from
individuals who do not meet the eligibility requirements and will also delete any entry as
required by law.
a. To enter listen to the Station during the Promotion Dates for the Station’s announcement of
a code word (“Code Word”) as well as a “sounder” or cue to enter (“Cue”). Each weekday
during the Promotion Dates, there will be up to three (3) Cues announced on-air on each
participating station, and each Cue will disclose a unique Code Word. Upon hearing the
Code Word and Cue, enter by text message or online within the hour during which the Cue
is announced to be entered for a chance to win a prize. Each entry window closes at the
end of each three (3) hour window in which the Cue is announced (2:59:59), regardless of
when the Cue airs (each, an “Entry Period”). Each participating station reserves the right to
announce the Code Word and Cue between the first five (5) minutes of the Entry Period
and fifty-five (55) minutes past the final hour of each three (3) hour Entry Period window.
Following each Entry Period, CBS Radio will conduct a random drawing from among all text
and online entrants nationwide during that Entry Period from all participating Stations (the
“Entry Period Pool”), and the one (1) potential nationwide winner will be randomly selected
and called by CBS Radio shortly after the drawing. The randomly selected entrant must be
available at the time of CBS Radio’s call to be eligible to win the prize. Once reached by
phone, the randomly selected entrant will be notified of their potential prize award (upon
confirmation of eligibility). At the time of the call, the randomly selected entrant 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 to verify eligibility.
P.O. Boxes are not permitted. CBS Radio will attempt to call the randomly selected entrant
five (5) times shortly following the Entry Period. No voicemail will be left. If the randomly
selected entrant fails to answer the calls or is disconnected or otherwise found to be
ineligible, the prize will be forfeited and CBS Radio will randomly select another entrant
from the Entry Period Pool to be the potential winner. This will continue until the prize is
awarded for that Entry Period. By participating in the Promotion entrants consent to CBS
Radio contacting them by phone at the telephone number from which the text 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.
b. Text Message: To enter by text message, upon hearing the Cue, text the Code Word
announced in the Cue to 80787 during the Cue’s Entry Period. You may also enter online
as described below. Message and data rates may apply. Promotion Entities are not
responsible for any fees or charges incurred for and associated with text message entries.
Entry by text message will not improve your chance of winning. By entering by text,
entrants consent to receive one (1) autodialed confirmatory text message from CBS Radio
on their wireless number, and entrants understand that entrant’s consent is not required as
a condition of purchase. By entering by text, each entrant consents to receive up to five (5)
notification phone calls on their mobile phone used for submitting the text message if
randomly selected as a potential winner. Further, by entering by text message, entrants
agree to accept all applicable charges associated therewith. Text messaging may not be
available through all wireless carriers, and the Station makes no guarantee that any
particular wireless service provider will participate.
c. Online: To enter online, upon hearing the Cue visit the website, and follow the links and instructions to enter the
Promotion and complete and submit the online entry form and provide the correct Code
Word 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.
d. Entrants may enter only once per Code Word announced during each respective Entry
Period, regardless of the method of entry (i.e., only one (1) entry per person per Code
Word). Each Station will announce a maximum of one (1) Code Word during each Entry
Period. Additional entries will be disqualified by the Promotion Entities. A listener may only
win one (1) prize during the Promotion. For this Promotion only, restrictions that would
prevent a listener from winning if he/she had won another recent CBS Radio station contest
or promotion will not apply. Proof of submission of an entry shall not be deemed proof of
receipt by CBS Radio.
e. Up to fifteen (15) prizes will be awarded in the Promotion, three (3) prizes will be awarded
each weekday, Monday through Friday nationwide by all participating stations. (Not all
participating stations will participate in every Entry Period, and some stations may offer
fewer opportunities to win.) The Station as well as all other participating radio stations may
also announce exact Cue times that future Code Words will be released. Station listeners
will be entering along with listeners from other stations around the country who will also
receive the Code Words and Cue announcements at similar times and will be entering
before the same Entry Period deadline for each Cue.
f. In the event of a technical difficulty, CBS Radio reserves the right to award prize to a
randomly selected entrant from the immediately available prior Entry Period pool, except
that any such entrant 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.
g. Due to delays and buffering in the online streaming of the Station’s broadcast signal,
listeners to the online stream may not be able to timely participate in or 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
