Many radio stations conduct contests that give away money. Most of the time, only the listeners of that specific radio station are winners. However, over the last couple of years, several large broadcasting companies have decided to conduct national contests. That means that radio stations owned by the same large company and located in several different states are conducting the same contest at the same time for the same prize. The large broadcasting companies do this so that you will think that their local stations are giving away large cash prizes. They fail to make it clear to you that you will be competing with other people from around the country and that there may not be a winner from your local area. Obviously, your chances of winning a national contest are much less than winning a contest being conducted by a single station.
At Acadiana Broadcasting Group, we’d like to assure you that we do not conduct cash giveaway contests in this manner, although we currently own multiple radio stations. Every contest heard on our stations is being conducted solely for the listeners of that one, particular station.
So, the next time you hear a radio announcement or see a television commercial for a radio station that says “You could win one million dollars tomorrow morning!!”, beware. There is a good chance that this is a national contest and your chance of winning is extremely small. You might even consider calling the station and asking them if their on-air cash contest is being conducted nationally or is it just for listeners in your local area.
List of Winner(s): For the name(s) of the winner(s) send a stamped, self-addressed envelope, to: KYBG-FM, …… at the corresponding station address.
