OFFICIAL RULES
FOR CUMULUS RADIO STATION CONTESTS & SWEEPSTAKES

A complete copy of
these rules can be obtained at the offices of any radio station owned
and/or operated by Cumulus Radio Corp.(“Sponsor”) during normal
business hours Monday through Friday or by sending a self-addressed, stamped
envelope to 3280 Peachtree Road, Suite 2300, Atlanta, GA 30305, Attn:
Legal Department.
Sponsor will conduct all Cumulus radio station contests and sweepstakes
(“Contests” and “Sweepstakes”), including on-air contests,
online and text-based sweepstakes, and contests and sweepstakes conducted
through a Cumulus radio station’s social media accounts (e.g., Facebook,
Twitter, etc.), substantially as described in these rules, and by participating,
each participant agrees as follows:

1. NO PURCHASE IS
NECESSARY. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. ALL FEDERAL, STATE,
AND LOCAL REGULATIONS APPLY.
2. Eligibility. Unless otherwise specified, all Contests and Sweepstakes
are 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 Cumulus radio station’s Designated Market Area (“DMA”)
as defined by Nielsen Audio. Void where prohibited by law. Individuals
age 13 to 17 may be eligible to participate in Contests and Sweepstakes
with the approval of a parent or legal guardian, provided that the parent
or legal guardian is a legal U.S. resident at least 18 years of age at
the time of entry with a valid Social Security number and resides in the
Cumulus radio station’s listening area. Unless otherwise specified, 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 Cumulus radio 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. An individual may win a Contest or Sweepstakes only once
per six (6) month period unless otherwise specifically stated. Contests
and Sweepstakes are subject to all applicable federal, state and local
laws and regulations. Participation constitutes entrant’s full and unconditional
agreement to these Official Rules and Sponsor’s decisions, which are final
and binding in all matters related to the Contest or Sweepstake. Winning
a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.
3. Contest or Sweepstakes Period. The Contest or Sweepstake will begin
and end at the times specified by Sponsor. Sponsor’s computer is the official
time keeping device for all Contests and Sweepstakes.
4. How to Enter. Entry methods for Contest and Sweepstakes will be specified
by Sponsor and entries must be received during the Contest or Sweepstakes
Period to be eligible. Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited
and will result in disqualification. Sponsor shall not be responsible
for lost, late, incomplete, invalid, unintelligible, inappropriate or
misdirected entries, all of which will be disqualified. In the event of
a dispute as to any entry, the authorized account holder of the email
address or telephone number used to enter will be deemed to be the participant.
The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned
the telephone number by the wireless carrier or an email address by an
Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization
responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with
the submitted address. Potential winner may be required to show proof
of being the authorized account holder. All entries become the sole and
exclusive property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Sponsor reserves
the right to contact entrants and all other individuals whose email address
is submitted as part of a Contest or Sweepstakes. Time Delay Between Over-the-Air
Analog Signal and Other Signal Delivery: Due to the time delay that exists
between a Cumulus radio station’s analog over-the-air signal and its online
webcast, listeners who listen to a Cumulus radio station online may hear
Contest or Sweepstakes information or a 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 winning a Contest Sweepstakes may be diminished
5. Winner Selection. Contest and Sweepstakes winners will be determined
according to the method specified by Sponsor at Sponsor’s sole and exclusive
discretion. The winning entrant will be contacted using the email address
and/or telephone number provided with the entry and may be awarded the
prize (subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with the
terms of these rules or the specific Contest or Sweepstakes rules). Sponsor’s
decisions as to the administration and operation of Contests and Sweepstakes
and the selection of potential winners is final and binding in all matters
related to the Contest or Sweepstakes. Failure to respond to the initial
verification contact within three (3) days of notification will result
in disqualification.
6. Verification of Potential Winner. POTENTIAL CONTEST AND SWEEPSTAKES
WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR WHOSE DECISIONS ARE FINAL
AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE CONTEST OR SWEEPSTAKES. The
potential winner must continue to comply with all terms and conditions
of these Official Rules and/or the Office Rules of the specific Contest
or Sweepstakes, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements.
The potential winner will be notified by email and/or telephone call,
after the date of random drawing. The potential winner will be required
to sign and return to sponsor, 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 within the required time period will be deemed to have accepted
the 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 contest
or sweepstakes prize is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor may award
the applicable prize to an alternate winner by random drawing from among
all remaining eligible entries.
7. Prizes. Contest and Sweepstakes prizes will be as specified by Sponsor.
Winner is responsible for all taxes associated with prize receipt and/or
use. Odds of winning a Contest or Sweepstakes prize depend on a number
of factors, including but not limited to the number of eligible entries
received by Sponsor during the Contest or Sweepstakes Period and the number
of listeners participating at any given time. Sponsor reserves the right
to substitute any listed prize for one of equal or greater value for any
reason. For prizes that involve travel, unless otherwise specified, trips
must be taken within the stated time periods or will be forfeited, winner
and guest must travel on the same itinerary, and winner’s guest must be
eighteen (18) years of age or older. Trips are non-transferable and no
substitution will be made except as provided at the Sponsor’s sole discretion.

8. Entry Conditions
and Release. By entering a Contest or Sweepstakes,
each participant agrees to: (a) comply with and be bound by these Official
Rules, the Office Rules of the specific Contest or Sweepstakes, and the
decisions of Sponsor, which are binding and final in all matters relating
to any Contest or Sweepstakes; (b) release and hold harmless Sponsor,
Cumulus Media Inc., and its subsidiaries, related and affiliated companies,
participating sponsors, the prize suppliers and any other organizations
responsible for sponsoring, fulfilling, administering, advertising or
promoting the Contest or Sweepstakes, and each of their respective past
and present officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives
(collectively, the “Released Parties”) from and against any
and all claims, expenses, and liability, including but not limited to
negligence and damages of any kind to persons and property, including
but not limited to invasion of privacy (under appropriation, intrusion,
public disclosure of private facts, false light in the public eye or other
legal theory), defamation, slander, libel, violation of right of publicity,
infringement of trademark, copyright or other intellectual property rights,
property damage, or death or personal injury arising out of or relating
to a participant’s entry, creation of an entry or submission of an entry,
participation in a Contest or Sweepstakes, acceptance or use or misuse
of prize (including any travel or activity related thereto) and/or the
broadcast, exploitation or use of entry; and (c) indemnify, defend and
hold harmless the Released Parties from and against any and all claims,
expenses, and liabilities (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising
out of or relating to an entrant’s participation in the Contest or Sweepstakes
and/or entrant’s acceptance, use, non-use or misuse of the prize.
9. Publicity. Except where prohibited, participation in a Contest or Sweepstakes
constitutes winner’s consent to Sponsor’s and its agents’ use of winner’s
name, likeness, photograph, voice, opinions and/or hometown and state
for promotional purposes in any media, worldwide, without further payment
or consideration, unless otherwise prohibited by law.
10. Taxes. All State, Local, Federal and or other taxes, duties, tariffs,
title fees, licensing fees, or other fees for prizes awarded in any Contest
or Sweepstakes become the sole responsibility of the winner. All those
who win a prize or prizes valued $600 or more in any given year will be
issued an IRS Form 1099 to report their winnings.
11. General Conditions. Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend
and/or modify any Contest or Sweepstakes, or any part of it, if any fraud,
technical failures or any other factor beyond Sponsor’s reasonable control
impairs the integrity or proper functioning of the Contest or Sweepstakes,
as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Sponsor 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
Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or any
other promotion or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt
by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of a
Contest or Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and,
should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages
from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. Sponsor’s
failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute
a waiver of that provision.
12. Limitations of Liability. The Released Parties are not responsible
for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by entrants,
printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming associated with
or utilized in the Contest or Sweepstakes; (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 or Sweepstakes;
(4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of
the Contest or Sweepstakes 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 Sweepstakes
or receipt or use, non-use or misuse of any prize. If for any reason an
entrant’s entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or
otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy is another entry
in the Contest or Sweepstakes, provided that if it is not possible to
award another entry due to discontinuance or completion of the Contest
or Sweepstakes, or any part of it, for any reason, Sponsor, at its discretion,
may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received
up to the date of discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered
herein. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In event
that production, technical, programming or any other reason causes more
than stated number of prizes as set forth in these Official Rules to be
available or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated
number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, unawarded,
eligible prize claims.
13. Disputes. Entrant agrees that: (i) any and all disputes, claims and
causes of action arising out of or connected with a Contest or Sweepstakes,
or any prizes awarded, other than those concerning the administration
of the Contest or Sweepstakes or the determination of the winner, shall
be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action;
(ii) any and all disputes, claims and causes of action arising out of
or connected with a Contest or Sweepstakes, or any prizes awarded, shall
be resolved exclusively by the United States District Court or the appropriate
state court located in the entrant’s Cumulus radio 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 a Contest or Sweepstakes, 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-of-pocket 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 Sponsor in connection
with the Contest or Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in
accordance with, the laws of the state in which the entrant’s Cumulus
radio station is located, without giving effect to any choice of law or
conflict of law rules (whether of the state in which the entrant’s Cumulus
radio 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 entrant’s Cumulus radio station is located.
14. Entrant’s Personal Information. Information collected from entrants
is subject to Sponsor’s Privacy Policy, which is available on every Cumulus
radio station’s website under the “Privacy Policy” link. All
entry blanks, forms, devices, and materials gathered during the course
of entry, as well as all information contained on or within, shall become
the sole property of Sponsor to be used, disposed of or destroyed in its
sole discretion. Sponsor 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 a Cumulus radio station website.
15. Sweepstakes Results. A winners list may be obtained thirty (30) days
