ALPHAMEDIA GENERAL CONTEST RULES

 

Wherever the words AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, and WRNN AM) appear in these rules, they include the business entity, to which the station is licensed, and any member companies, parent corporations, and affiliates. These rules may be amended by separate specific rules for major contests or promotions conducted by the Station or its sponsors.

1) No purchase is necessary to enter any AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, and WRNN AM) contest.

2) All contestants must be permanent residents of South Carolina or North Carolina and must present AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, WRNN AM) with a valid form of identification and Social Security number satisfactory to AlphaMedia management.

3) Subject to rule (4) below, all contestants must be at least 18 years old to be eligible to participate in contests that include hotel/motel accommodations, motor vehicles, boats, and/or air travel as prizes.

4) All contestants must be at least 21 years old to be eligible for all contests affiliated with an alcoholic beverage manufacturer or distributor.

5) After winning a contest on AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, WRNN AM), the individual/household is ineligible to win any other contests on AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, WRNN AM)  for a period of thirty (30) days. All individuals/households receiving a prize valued at $600.00 or more on AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, WRNN AM) may be issued a 1099 Federal Income Tax Form by AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, WRNN AM), and are ineligible to win a prize valued at $600.00 or more for a period of one calendar year from the date of winning. If it is determined that a selected contestant is ineligible as a result of one or both of these restrictions, another contestant will be selected. This selection procedure will continue until these restrictions are satisfied.

6) Anytime AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, and WRNN AM) on-air studio is called, it is assumed by the caller that the phone call is being recorded and may be broadcast. The caller grants permission to AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, and WRNN AM) to broadcast the call or record the call for later broadcast.

6a) For telephone contests, listeners may enter by calling the station telephone number WYAV-FM 843-626-9283, WMYB-FM 843-448-9292, WKZQ-FM 843-626-7300 and WRNN-FM 843-839-9950. If any problems are discovered by AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, and WRNN AM), different call-in numbers or addresses may be substituted and utilized after those numbers and addresses are broadcast on AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, and WRNN AM). In the event a caller is disconnected during a contest before his/her name and phone number is recorded, then the prize will be awarded to the next caller whose name and phone number are recorded. The person operating the telephone AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, and WRNN AM) has the final decision as to who is the winning caller.

6b) Due to the nature of our programs that are heard on-line over the internet, contests heard on the radio station’s internet audio stream are slightly delayed from the time the contests are heard on the broadcast station, and will be running behind the broadcast signal. Thus, all contests heard are delayed. This delay can last for as much as 30 seconds or more. This means that when WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM & WRNN AM contests are played that require a specific caller to telephone the radio station (such as “Caller number 10 when you hear the sound effect”), listeners to the on-line audio stream may be at a disadvantage in participating over those listeners who hear the contests on-air.

7) For contests requiring written entry forms may be faxed to 843-626-5988 or mailed/delivered to AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, WRNN AM) –1016 Ocala Street., Myrtle Beach, SC 29577. All entries become property of AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, and WRNN AM) and will not be returned. AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, and WRNN AM) reserves the right to retain any or all contest materials for any reason that AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, WRNN AM) deems necessary to the completion of the contest, or reasons relating to publicity and/or advertising. AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, and WRNN AM) shall have no responsibility for a contestant’s failure to win or claim any prize based on difficulties with telephone, facsimile, email, or internet difficulties, or any circumstances in any contest.

8) Any specific rules and/or restrictions pertaining to individual contests (entry dates, a limit on number or words on an entry, etc.) will be disclosed in on-air announcements.

9) Prizes must be picked up by the winners at the AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, WRNN AM)  business office or other pre-arranged or pre-announced location within thirty (30) days of notification to the winner, unless there is a deadline date by which the prizes must be picked up, in which case, that date will be specifically stated. Otherwise, failure to pick up the prizes by the deadline will result in the forfeiture of the prize, which shall remain the property of AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, and WRNN AM.) AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, and WRNN AM) assumes no liability for the delivery of prizes.

10) In the event the winner is subject to, or the subject of, any order or legal process issued by any governmental agency having jurisdiction over the affairs of the winner (i.e. garnishment, child support order, judgment, lien, and the like AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, WRNN AM) 's delivery of the prize to the official representative of the governmental entity claiming a right to the prize shall be thus deemed as AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, WRNN AM)  awarding the prize to the winner. AlphaMedia (WKZQ, WYAV, WMYB, WRNN-FM, WRNN AM) shall be entitled to rely in good faith, upon any documents presented by their representative seeking to collect the prize in lieu of the winner.
