Any text message form of entry into a sweepstakes or contest will be deemed made by the named account holder whose mobile phone number is assigned at the time of entry to the text-messaging enabled wireless device used to text the entry. Each text message sent to or received by a service subscriber of any wireless carrier may incur a standard text messaging charge in accordance with that carrier’s (Terms and Conditions) applicable to such subscriber’s particular voice/data rate plan.

For call in to win contests, a “sounder” or cue to call announcement will be aired randomly at various times along with a message instructing listeners to call for a chance to be a winner. Listen to the Station during the times stated on the website for the cue to call in and be the designated numbered caller to the 96.5 the Beat contest line (315-476-9653). The correct caller will either automatically win the announced prize “or” be required to perform a task (i.e., answering a trivia question correctly), as determined by 96.5 the Beat and announced during the cue to call to win. Prizes for Call In to Win or “Cue to Call” Contests conducted by 96.5 the Beat will vary and be announced prior to the cue-to-call in. The cue to plays announced may at times also be for a qualifying spot to participate in a Grand Prize Event or drawing. Listen to the Station for details on specific giveaways and for the times to play. Dates, times, winner selection and prizes will vary with each station giveaway, as determined by 96.5 the Beat and announced during the cue to call. Winner must be the designated caller to the phone number announced; the designated caller, if eligible, will be a winner. If Company determines the designated caller is not eligible, the Company may select the next consecutive eligible caller as the winner for that time. Contest participants should not rely on streamed broadcasts in order to participate. Listeners may be listening via the Station stream on the Internet: please be advised that you may be listening to a delayed stream of the radio signal, which may vary depending on your computer’s memory and speed of your internet connection. We strongly recommend that you turn your radio to 96.5 the Beat to participate in any call-in contest to be sure you are participating in “real time.” The Company assumes no responsibility for contestants not making timely phone calls to the station as a result of the delays in the Internet stream.
WARNING: 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 heard on the broadcast station, and will be running behind the broadcast signal. Thus, all contests heard are delayed. This delay may last up to several minutes. This means that when the broadcast station announces the cue to call or text for a contest, listeners to the on-line audio stream will be at a greater disadvantage in participating over those listeners who hear the contests on a conventional FM radio.
