General Contest Rules

No purchase is necessary to participate in any WSWV contest or sweepstakes.

 

To give all our listeners the opportunity to win, please wait at least two weeks after you win a prize to play another contest on WSWV.  We also limit most contests to one winner per household. Some contests have additional restrictions that will be announced or posted as needed.  Unless otherwise posted, only one member of an immediate family or household may win a major prize ($100 value or more) in any single contest or promotion. Upon the winning of a major prize by one member of an immediate family or household, he or she and all other members of his/her immediate family and/or household become ineligible to participate further in that contest or promotion.

Unless otherwise posted, contests on WSWV are open to all legal U.S. residents of Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky who reside within the coverage area of WSWV. Contestants must be age 18 or older to win and/or claim prizes with a retail value of $100 or more or certain other prizes that by their nature should be restricted to persons under 18 years old. Employees of BC Broadcasting Company, Inc. and the members of the immediate families or households of such individuals are not eligible. Owners, directors, and employees of business entities that are primary sponsors of any contest or promotion and the members of the immediate families or households of such individuals are not eligible to participate in the particular contest(s) with which their business entities are associated. Owners, directors, and employees of business entities of whatsoever nature that are engaged in the same or substantially similar types of business as that of BC Broadcasting Company and the members of the immediate families or households of such individuals are not eligible.

Unless readily available, prizes are to be picked up at our offices in the West Gate Mini Mall in Pennington Gap.  We ask winners to pick up their prizes at our offices during normal business hours which are Monday through Friday – 9am to 5pm – except holidays. If your prize will not be available for normal pick-up, special instructions will be given to you at the time of winning. Prizes not picked up within two weeks may be forfeited.  Prizes such as concert and event tickets that are for a specific show, concert, or event, must be picked up at our office prior to 5pm eastern time on the last day of business prior to the show, concert, or event otherwise they shall be forfeited and become the exclusive property of WSWV. WSWV guarantees no monetary or redemption value for ticket to events, concerts, shows, races, or performances that are given away as prizes.  WSWV assumes no responsibility for redeeming such tickets should an event, concert, show, race, or performance be cancelled, postponed, or not held for any reason whatsoever.
