WKLB-FM General Contest Rules


These General Contest Rules apply to all contests sponsored or promoted by WKLB-FM, unless the detailed contest rules for any specific contest state otherwise.  Participation in WKLB-FM’s larger contests is subject to rules posted and broadcast specifically for those contests.

For contests that require listeners to call the Station, the following cautions and rules apply:

(1) Online listeners to the Station web stream may experience a reception delay of up to one minute.  Listening to the station’s over-the-air broadcast is the best way to participate in this contest.

(2) Winner qualification is subject to FULL phone call completion, and the verification of the caller’s name, address, home phone number, work/cell phone number and social security number, all of which mustbe provided prior to completion of the call.  Contest calls will notbe accepted at any phone number other than the number announced on-air.


Description and value of each prize will be announced on-air and may be posted on the Station website while the contest is running.

Odds of winning depend on number of eligible entries received. Non-cash prizes are not redeemable for cash. WKLB-FM reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to substitute any prize for one of equal or greater value. Winners may not request prize substitution. Prizes are non-transferable and may not be claimed or used by any person other than the winner. Winners must claim their prizes in person at the WKLB-FM offices within 30 days after the end of the contest. Prizes not claimed within the 30-day period will be forfeited.


All entrants must be at least 18 years old and legal residents of the United States, living or working in the Boston metropolitan survey area (as defined by Arbitron).  Individuals and households may win only one Country 102.5 WKLB-FM contest in any sixty-day period, with the following exception:  Winners of prizes valued at $20 or less, such as CD's and non-headliner concert tickets, are not eligible to win another such prize for 30 calendar days, but MAY participate in larger multi-week promotions during which more valuable prizes, such as trips and cash, are offered.

Employees (including their immediate families and members of the same household) of Greater Boston Radio, Inc., its affiliates (including all Greater Media Boston radio stations), promotional sponsors, advertising and promotional agencies who do business with WKLB-FM, and other radio stations in the Boston MSA are not eligible to participate in any contest presented by WKLB-FM.

Limit one entry per person; multiple entries will disqualify the entrant.


By entering, all participants release and hold harmless the promotion sponsors, WKLB-FM, Greater Boston Radio, Inc., and each of their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, employees and agents from any and all liability and any injuries, loss or damage of any kind arising from or in connection with this contest and any prize won.

Winners must provide their social security number to WKLB-FM for tax reporting purposes, and are solely responsible for payment of all taxes incurred as a result of the award of a prize.


Failure to conform to all contest rules, or any fraud or other illegal or inappropriate conduct on the part of or on behalf of a contestant, will result in the contestant's disqualification and forfeiture of any prize won. WKLB-FM reserves the right to rule ineligible listeners who, in WKLB-FM’s sole judgment, engage in abusive conduct with respect to any contest or promotion conducted by WKLB-FM or its affiliates. WKLB-FM reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify any contest and these General Rules at any time, which changes will become effective upon announcement.  By taking part in this contest, participants agree to be bound by these rules and all decisions of the judges, who are employees of WKLB-FM and whose decisions with respect to all aspects of the contest are final and binding.

As a condition to participating in a Station contest, each entrant agrees that any and all disputes that cannot be resolved between the parties, and all causes of action arising out of or in connection with this Contest shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, exclusively before a court located in Boston, Massachusetts, having competent jurisdiction, which court shall apply the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without regard to the conflicts of law principles thereof. The entrant and WKLB-FM hereby waive any and all right to trial by jury. If any provision of these Rules is declared or found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, unenforceable or void, then such provision will be null and void but each other provision hereof not so affected will be enforced to the full extent permitted by applicable law.

Contest is void where prohibited by law. All federal, state and local laws and regulations apply
