The Station will conduct the WHOT “Hot G Shopping Spree” Contest substantially as described in these rules, and by
participating, each participant agrees as follows:
1. 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 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 30 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 30 days or a prize valued
at $500 or more in the last 180 days. Void where prohibited by law. Employees of Cumulus Broadcasting LLC, 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. Only one (1) Qualifier per immediate family and/or household, as defined above. If there is more than one
Qualifier from a household or immediate family, all qualifiers in said household will be disqualified.
2. Contest Period. The Contest will begin at 6:00 a.m. ET on November 12th, 2018 and will run through 6:00 p.m. ET on
November 30th, 2018 (the “Contest Period”). The Station’s computer is the official time keeping device for this Contest.
3. How to Enter. To enter:
On-Air: Listen to the Station weekdays around 6:40 a.m., 8:40 a.m., 1:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. during the Contest
Period. When the Station plays the “cue-to-call” sounder, listeners should call the Station at 330-781-WHOT (9468). Caller
number ten (10) to the Station, as determined by the Station in its sole discretion, will be entered to win the Grand Prize.
You may qualify for the Grand Prize via the on-air entry method only once. 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 over-the-air signal. As a result, the odds of an online listener entering this Contest on-air may be diminished.
Only one (1) Qualifier per immediate family or household, as defined above. If there is more than one Qualifier from
a household, all qualifiers in said household will be disqualified.
4. Winner Selection. Station will select one (1) Qualifier for the Grand Prize in a random reverse drawing from among all
Qualifiers in attendance who are properly checked-in at the Grand Prize Event. All Qualifiers must attend the remote
broadcast between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. at Southern Park Mall on December 8, 2018 to be eligible to
win the Grand Prize. You Must Bring a current, Valid Government Issued photo ID and Register no later than 11:00
a.m. and remain present in order to win the Grand Prize. Failure to check-in by 11:00 a.m. and/or failure to bring a
current valid, government issued photo ID will lead to immediate disqualification, and at that time a Qualifier will no
longer be eligible to win the Grand Prize. NO PROXIES WILL BE ALLOWED FOR ANY REASON. Once checkedin
a Qualifier must remain present throughout the duration of the Grand Prize event. If the Qualifier leaves the premises
and/or does not present herself/himself within thirty (30) seconds, as determined by the Station in its sole discretion, then
he/she will be deemed no longer present and will be ineligible to win the Grand Prize. The Grand Prize winner will be
announced at the live remote. Station’s decisions as to the administration and operation of the Contest and the selection of the
potential winner are final and binding in all matters related to the Contest.
5. Verification of Potential Winner. THE ELIGIBILITY OF ALL POTENTIAL CONTEST WINNER IS SUBJECT TO
VERIFICATION BY STATION WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO
THE CONTEST. The potential winner must continue to comply with all terms and conditions of these Official Rules, and
winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. The potential winner will be required to sign and return to Station,
within three (3) days of the date notice is sent, an affidavit of eligibility and a liability/publicity release (except where
prohibited) in order to claim his/her prize, if applicable. A winner who returns the affidavit of eligibility and
liability/publicity release will be deemed to have accepted the Contest Prize and thereafter will not be permitted to rescind
their acceptance of the prize and/or return the prize. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, fails to sign and return the
affidavit of eligibility and/or the liability/publicity release within the required time period (if applicable), or if the prize or
prize notification is returned as undeliverable, potential winner forfeits prize. In the event that the potential winner of a prize
is disqualified for any reason, Station may award the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among
all remaining eligible entries.
6. Grand Prize. One (1) Grand Prize will be awarded in this Contest. The Grand Prize is A Hot G Shopping Spree at the

Period and listeners participating at any given time. Station reserves the right to substitute any listed prize for one of equal or
greater value for any reason. There is no substitution, transfer, or cash equivalent for prizes, except that the Station may, at its
sole discretion and to the extent permitted by law, substitute prizes of comparable value or cash. The prizes are expressly
limited to the item(s) listed above and do not include taxes, gratuities or any other expenses. Any tickets or gift cards

10. General Conditions. Station reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify the Contest, or any part of it, if any fraud,
technical failures or any other factor beyond Station’s reasonable control impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the
Contest, as determined by Station in its sole discretion. Station reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any
individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Contest or to be acting in violation of these
Official Rules or acting in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine
the legitimate operation of the Contest may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made,
Station reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Station’s failure to
enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.
11. Limitations of Liability. The Released Parties are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether
caused by Station, entrants, printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the
Contest; (2) technical failures of any kind, including but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in
phone lines or network hardware or software; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the
Contest; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the Contest or the processing of entries; or (5)
any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s
participation in the Contest or receipt or use, non-use or misuse of any prize. No more than the stated number of prizes will
be awarded. In event that a production, technical, programming or other error causes more than stated number of prizes as set
forth in these Official Rules to be claimed, Station reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random
drawing among all legitimate, unawarded, eligible prize claims.
12. Disputes. Entrant agrees that: (i) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of or connected with this
Contest, or any prizes awarded, without resort to any form of class action; (ii) any and all disputes, claims and causes of

District Court or the appropriate state court located in the Station’s listening area; (iii) any and all claims, judgments and
awards shall be limited to actual out-of-pocket costs incurred, including costs associated with entering this Contest, but in no
event attorneys’ fees; and (iv) under no circumstances will entrant be permitted to obtain awards for, and entrant hereby
waives all rights to claim punitive, incidental and consequential damages and any other damages, other than for actual out-ofpocket
expenses, and any and all rights to have damages multiplied or otherwise increased. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO
NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity,
interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, or the rights and obligations of entrant and Station in connection
with the Contest, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the state in which the Station is located,
without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the state in which the Station is located or any
other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the state in which the Station
during the course of entry, as well as all information contained therein, shall become the sole property of Station to be used,
disposed of or destroyed in its sole discretion. Station is not responsible for any incorrect or inaccurate information entered
by website users, and assumes no responsibility for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or
transmission, communications line failure, theft or destruction or unauthorized access to Station’s website.
