The Cash Cow
CBS Radio’s Spring 2012 National Contest (March 2012)
OFFICIAL RULES

NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT OF ANY KIND IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. A PURCHASE OR PAYMENT WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCE OF WINNING.

1.PROMOTION DATES

a.The Cash Cow (“Promotion”) will begin on Monday, March 5, 2012, and will run through Friday, March 30, 2012, between the hours of 5:00a.m Pacific Time (“PT”), and 5:00 p.m PT (the “Promotion Dates”).

2.ELIGIBILITY RESTRICTIONS

a.The Promotion is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States (including the District of Columbia) who are 18 years of age or older. Contestants will be competing with listeners from up to 65 stations in up to 30 radio markets across the United States. Employees of CBS Radio Inc., its participating radio stations, including KRTH-FM (the “Station”) (CBS Radio Inc., the Station and participating stations shall be collectively deemed “CBS Radio”), Worldlink Services Corp., Allstream, Ask Joe, LLC, and each their respective parent, subsidiary, and affiliated entities, and each of their advertising agencies, participating sponsors/promotional partners (collectively “Promotion Entities”), other radio stations in the metropolitan areas of the participating stations and members of their immediate families (parents, children, siblings, spouses) or persons living in the same households as such persons, whether related or not, are ineligible to participate or win. This Promotion is governed by U.S. law and is subject to all federal, state and local laws and regulations. Void outside the United States and where prohibited.

b.Entrants are required to provide truthful information and the Station will reject and delete any entry that it discovers to be false or fraudulent. The Station will disqualify any entry from individuals who do not meet the eligibility requirements.

3.ENTRY

a.To enter on-air, listeners will need to listen during the Promotion Dates for their station’s “cue to call” (there will be eight (8) “cues to call” each weekday during the Promotion Dates) and then call 1-866-327-9946 (1-866-EASY WIN). Calls may be recorded and/or broadcast on-air. On each weekday throughout the Promotion Dates, eight (8) potential prize winners will be selected between the hours of 5:00a.m. PTand 5:00p.m. PT. A total of one hundred sixty (160) prize winners will be selected nationwide. Eight (8) $1,000 prizes will be awarded each weekday throughout all markets during the Promotion. KRTH-FM as well as all participating stations may also announce exact times that future cues will be played. Station listeners will be competing with listeners from other stations around the country who will also receive a “cue to call” at the same time and will be calling the same number. Upon verification of eligibility, the 110th caller after the “cue to call” is given will be deemed a prize winner. In the event that the 110th caller is disconnected, the next caller to make it through will be the prize winner. At the time of their call, each designated caller will be required to provide all information requested, including their first and last name, complete address, including Zip Code, daytime and evening phone numbers, and their date of birth to be eligible to win. In the event of a tie, duplicate claims, or multiple persons claiming to be the correct caller, a final and binding decision will be made by CBS Radio, which reserves the right to hold a random drawing in such event to determine the winner. In the event of an equipment malfunction, CBS Radio reserves the right to award prize to caller 111, 112, or 113, from the previous contest, in this order and pending verification of eligibility, except that any such callers who have already won qualifying prizes will be excluded. Given the call volume, callers outside of the first 113 callers following a “cue to call,” may hear a busy tone, “all circuits are busy” message, or other random phone company messages.

c.There is no limit to the number of times a listener can try to call in and win. A listener may only win one prize during the Promotion, and only one prize winner per household can win during the run of the Promotion. For this Promotion only, restrictions that would prevent a listener from winning if he/she had won another recent CBS Radio station contest or Promotion will not apply.

d.Due to delays in the Station’s streaming broadcast, listeners to the online stream may not be able to timely participate in any Station-conducted on-air contests. Listeners to the online stream are encouraged to listen to the Station live on-air.

4.PRIZES

a.One hundred sixty (160) $1,000 cash prizes. Each $1,000 cash prize will be awarded as a check in the amount of $1,000 payable to the prize winner upon confirmation of eligibility.

c.Total aggregate value of all prizes in the Promotion is $160,000. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded.

d.Each cash prize will be issued as a check payable to the order of the prize winner upon verification of eligibility. Checks will be processed and mailed within four to eight weeks upon verification of eligibility and receipt of all completed prize winner paperwork.
