WSB-AM, WSB-FM, WSBB-FM, WALR-FM, and WSRV-FM

Unless otherwise specified, these Official Rules apply to any promotion (whether called a "sweepstakes" or a "contest") on the above stations. If official rules other than these Official Rules apply to a particular promotion, those official rules will be posted on this website and identified by the name of the promotion.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR TO WIN. A PURCHASE WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING. ALL FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL AND MUNICIPAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS APPLY. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. 

  1.  Eligibility. Subject to the additional restrictions below, contests and sweepstakes (collectively, a "Contest") are open to legal residents of the State of Georgia who are 18 years or older at the time of entry (age subject to change based on venue or travel restrictions) and who have either (i) a valid Georgia driver’s license or Georgia state-issued ID; or (ii) another form of government-issued ID and a utility bill proving residence in the State of Georgia. Employees of Cox Radio, Inc., d/b/a Cox Media Group Atlanta (“Sponsor” or “CMG Atlanta”), and each of its respective affiliated companies, subsidiaries, and advertising and promotional agencies, and the family members of, and any persons domiciled with, any such employees, are not eligible to enter or to win. The term "family members" includes spouses, parents, grandparents, siblings, children, grandchildren and in-laws, regardless of where they live. Persons belonging to or affiliated with a professional acting, theater, or film-making organization, such as SAG or AFTRA, are not allowed to compete in the Contest or participate in any entry. Professional actors and filmmakers, whether full-time or part-time, are allowed to compete so long as they do not belong to any professional organizations connected with the entertainment industry that would cause Sponsor to pay the entrant or any other person a fee or any other benefit for taking part in any Contest event.

Limit: Only one (1) prize winner may be selected from the same household every thirty (30) days in connection with any Contest sponsored or administered by any of the CMG Atlanta radio stations: WSB-AM, WSB-FM, WSBB, WALR, and WSRV (each, a “Station”). If you or a member of your household has won a prize from any Station within the last thirty (30) days, you will be ineligible to receive a prize in this Contest. 

  1.   How to EnterThe Contest will take place between the start and end times and dates stated on-air (the "Contest Period"). Sponsor will specify on which Station(s) the Contest will take place. Sponsor will be the official timekeeper for the Contest. 
  • If the Contest requires entrants to call-in to win:
    Listen to the applicable Station for Sponsor to identify the cue-to-call to try to be the designated caller. Sponsor may also identify a task, if any, that the designated caller must perform on the call (e.g., answer a trivia question), as well as the phone number to call in (the "Contest Line"). When you hear the cue, call the Contest Line at the appropriate time to try to be the designated caller and perform any applicable task. Subject to verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules and any other criteria announced on-air, the designated caller will be announced a winner. Sponsor will decide, in its sole discretion, whether a participant has met all criteria to be announced a winner. 

    To be declared a winner for call-in Contests: (a) you must be listening to the station when the cue to call the Contest Line airs; (b) you must be declared by Sponsor to be the designated caller and perform any applicable task to Sponsor's satisfaction; and (c) you must comply with all other terms and conditions of these Official Rules and any other rules announced on air. Telephone calls will be taken by Contest operators in the order they are received, and the operators will count the number of calls received after each on-air Contest announcement to determine the designated caller. The determinations of Sponsor and Contest operators will be final and binding in all respects. 

    Enter as often as you like, provided that using automatic telephone dialing equipment or other software or computer-assisted dialing equipment is prohibited and will result in disqualification. 

    Entry into a call-in Contest shall be deemed consent to record any telephone conversation between a potential winner and Sponsor. Listeners accessing Sponsor’s radio station audio via IP connections like website-based streaming or mobile devices are welcome to enter. However, Sponsor cannot be responsible for delays in electronic transmission of station audio to IP devices. By entering the Contest, listeners acknowledge and agree to this specific provision of these Official Rules.

    In addition, Sponsor will not be responsible for loss of service to a Contest Line or for a participant’s failure to reach a Contest Line due to malfunction of any network or system, congestion, any technical or human error, failures or malfunctions of any kind, including the congestion, overload, busy signals, or any other factor that may prevent an individual from completing his/her phone call. In the event of interruption of power or telephone service to Sponsor during call-in period of a Contest prior to accepting the correct caller, or a change in programming that results in Sponsor’s inability to air call-in opportunity, Sponsor will not replay the affected call-in opportunity and the number of prizes awarded in the Contest will be reduced accordingly. If the correct caller is ineligible, or fails to comply with any term of condition of these Official Rules, that caller will be disqualified, and Sponsor will resume the call-in opportunity and declare the next caller a winner, pending verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules.   

    Telephone calls will be taken by Contest operators in the order they are received, and the operators will count the number of calls received after each on-air Contest cue-to-call to determine the correct caller. The determinations of Sponsor and Contest operators will be final and binding in all respects.  
  • In the event a caller gets disconnected for any reason before being declared a winner, Sponsor may resume the call-in opportunity affected and declare the next caller a winner, pending verification of eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. Sponsor will not be responsible for dropped calls from mobile devices or land lines and dropped calls may result in a potential winner’s disqualification and forfeiture of all interest in any prize. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entries by persons who submit false or misleading entry information or who Sponsor determines to be tampering with or abusing any aspect of the Contest.   Any winning entrant must be the same person who originally dialed the phone to the radio station to the radio station to participate in a Contest. No family members, friends, office associates, or any other person will be allowed to participate in a Contest on another person’s behalf. An entrant must provide his or her own name as listed on his or her valid Georgia driver’s license or Georgia state-issued ID (or other proof of Georgia residency, such as a copy of a utility bill), subject to the Contest’s eligibility requirements. If a participant uses a false name on any ID submitted as proof of identification, he or she will be immediately disqualified from the Contest and be ineligible to win any prize.  Winner Selection and Odds: The maximum number of winners will be announced. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible participants and the order in which calls are received.
  • If the Contest requires entrants to like or comment on a Social Media Platform post: Contests may be offered via Sponsor’s social media channels (e.g., Instagram®, Facebook®, Twitter®) (collectively, “Social Media Platforms”).

    To enter, you must have the required Social Media Platform account registered under your name and you must be signed on to that account when you enter. Find the Contest post on the relevant Social Media Platform and follow all posted instructions to enter. Unless otherwise specified, if the Contest requires entry by liking a post, Sponsor will select a winner through a random drawing among all eligible entrants. 

    If the Contest requires entry by commenting on a post, Sponsor’s Contest post will state the criteria for designating a potential winner (e.g., the sixth person to comment) prior to the Contest Period and any other required content, such as custom hashtags (e.g., “#contest”) or tagging the Sponsor (e.g., “@971theriver”). Sponsor will count comments in the order they are received, and all comments received by Sponsor will be counted for the purpose of determining the winning entry. Sponsor may delete or decline to publish some comments during the Contest Period, but these will not be excluded from Sponsor's count. Only a valid entry submitted in compliance with these Official Rules may win. If Sponsor decides, in its sole discretion, that a potential winner's entry does not comply, Sponsor may designate the next valid entry to be the winning entry. 

    In the event of a dispute, an entry will be deemed to have been submitted by the owner of the Social Media Platform account from which the entry is submitted, provided that such person satisfies all other Contest eligibility requirements. The Contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by or associated with any Social Media Platform. 
    Winner Selection and Odds: The maximum number of winners will be announced. Odds depend on the number of eligible participants.

News

  • Last year, after mounting pressure to address the impact of screen time on young users, Apple released a new feature that tracks how long users look at their phone each day. (Although, many teens have found loopholes to circumvent the monitoring system sometimes used by parents). >> Read more trending news  But, of course, it’s not just young people who are spending oodles of hours in front of a screen. Nearly 30% of adults in the United States say they are online “almost constantly,” according to a Pew Research Center poll. And another Pew study reported screen time was increasing among adults over 60. The potential drawbacks of too much screen time are well-documented: Studies have linked it to depressive symptoms for adolescents and overall sleep disruption. In addition, too much exposure to blue light — the wavelengths emitted from phones and computer screens — may also be causing accelerated aging, even if you’re not looking directly at it, a new study suggests.  The study, published Thursday in “Aging and Mechanisms of Disease,” found that blue light could be damaging to cells in the brain, as well as the eyes. The researchers looked at how fruit flies responded to 12 hours of exposure to blue LED light. In the study, the flies that were exposed to 12 hours of light, followed by 12 hours of darkness did not live as long as those kept away from the blue light all together. Exposure to blue light also affected the flies’ ability to conduct common behaviors, such as climbing walls. Some flies used in the experiment were eyeless and even those subjects had brain damage after being exposed to the light.  “It was very clear cut that although light without blue slightly shortened their lifespan, just blue light alone shortened their lifespan very dramatically,' researcher Jaga Giebultowicz said. Fruit flies are frequently used in similar studies because of their cellular makeup and development is similar to humans and other animals.  'And with the prevalent use of LED lighting and device displays, humans are subjected to increasing amounts of light in the blue spectrum since commonly used LEDs emit a high fraction of blue light,” Giebultowicz said.  In order to curb risk, the researchers suggest that people get plenty of exposure to natural light, which is important for maintaining the body’s natural circadian rhythm. 'As science looks for ways to help people be healthier as they live longer, designing a healthier spectrum of light might be a possibility, not just in terms of sleeping better but in terms of overall health,” researcher Eileen Chow said. In addition to getting outside for some Vitamin D, researchers also suggest people wear glasses with blue light protection when looking at screens and check the settings on devices to block blue light emissions. 
  • He was able to “Get Out,” and survived the “Black Panther” — and Okoye — so Daniel Kaluuya’s next project might leave some people scratching their heads. >> Read more trending news  Kaluuya is partnering with Mattel Films and Valparaiso Pictures on a live-action movie about Barney, the giant purple dinosaur who famously loved us from 1992 through 2009. “Barney was a ubiquitous figure in many of our childhoods, then he disappeared into the shadows, left misunderstood,” Kaluuya said Friday in a statement announcing the movie. “We’re excited to explore this compelling modern-day hero and see if his message of ‘I love you, you love me’ can stand the test of time.” According to Mattel Films’ Robbie Brenner: “Working with Daniel Kaluuya will enable us to take a completely new approach to ‘Barney’ that will surprise audiences and subvert expectations. The project will speak to the nostalgia of the brand in a way that will resonate with adults, while entertaining today’s kids.” Kaluuya was nominated for an Academy Award for his 2017 performance in “Get Out.” In 2018, he played W’Kabi — friend of T’Challa and the love of Okoye — in Marvel’s Atlanta-filmed “Black Panther.” Social media had mixed reactions to the announcement, so many that Barney was a trending topic by Friday afternoon.
