These rules (the “Official Rules”) govern the Play it Forward promotion (“Promotion”) that will begin on December 3, 2018 at or around 10:00 am Eastern Time (“ET”) and end on December 14, 2018 at or around 5:00 pm ET (“Promotion Period”).


a. The Promotion is open to all legal U.S. residents who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry and who live in Tennessee and within the terrestrial, over-the-air broadcast signal of WKHT. Employees of SummitMedia LLC, d/b/a WKHT (the “Promoter” or “Station”), its corporate parent, subsidiary, and affiliated entities, and of the advertising agencies, participating sponsors/promotional partners, and other entities involved with this Promotion, and of the other broadcasting stations in the Knoxville metropolitan area, and the members of those individuals’ immediate families (spouse, parents, siblings or children) or households (whether related or not) are ineligible to participate or win. Void where prohibited and outside the Promotion Area. By participating, entrants agree to be bound by the Official Rules and the decisions of Promoter, which are final.

b. Individuals may win prizes from WKHT/HOT 104.5 only once every 60 days, including all contests or promotions conducted by WCYQ/Q100.3, WWST/Star 102.1, and WNOX/93.1. Only one winner per family/household is permitted in any Promoter-conducted Promotion.

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


To participate in the Promotion, you may enter via the following methods:

a. VIA ON AIR – To enter on-air, listen to the Station each weekday beginning on Monday, December 3, 2018 and ending on Friday, December 14, 2018 every hour between 10 am ET and 5 pm ET for the cue to call. Upon hearing the cue to call, the designated caller (as announced by the on-air personality prior to the cue to call) to get through to the Station contest line at 865-656-1045 will be named a qualifier (“Qualifier”) for a chance to win the daily Grand Prize upon confirmation of eligibility.

The designated caller will also have the opportunity to nominate a friend to whom they will “play it forward” (“Friend”). A Qualifier’s Friend must meet the eligibility requirements for Qualifiers set forth above and must not be an immediate family member or member of the same household as the Qualifier who designated the Friend.

At the time of their call, entrants must provide all requested information, including, their first name and last name, telephone number, and date of birth, as well as the first and last name and phone number of their Friend. The Promoter’s telephone system is the official time keeping device for the Promotion. If the selected caller is disconnected or is found to be ineligible or not in compliance with these Official Rules, the next eligible caller who successfully makes it through on the call-in line and completes the call will be deemed a Qualifier. There is no limit to the number of times a listener may attempt to call in to qualify.

b. VIA ONLINE – From Monday, December 3, 2018 thru Friday, December 14, 2018 during designated entry periods, listeners can enter the Promotion online at www.hot1045.net. At the time of entry, online entrants must provide all requested information, including, their first name and last name, email address, telephone number, and date of birth and the name and phone number of their Friend. Limit one online entry per person and per email address per day. Each day, Promoter will select a Qualifier and Friend in a random drawing from among all eligible online entries received that day from 12:01 am to 4:30 pm ET. The Monday, December 10 drawing will include entries received from 12:01 am on Saturday, December 8 through 4:30 pm on Monday, December 10. Odds of being selected as an online Qualifier depend on the number of eligible entries received for each drawing. Online entries will not carry over from one drawing to the next. If a potential Qualifier is not in compliance with these Official Rules or does not meet the eligibility requirements, the Qualifier position will be forfeited. If a Qualifier is disqualified, no alternate will be awarded for that particular Qualifier position.

c. Limit one Qualifier or Friend designation per person. Use of any device to automate entry is prohibited. Proof of submission of an entry will not be deemed proof of receipt by Promoter. The Station reserves the right to delay the announcement of the cue to call if breaking news or other unanticipated events prevent the cue to call from occurring as scheduled. If such changes occur, they will be posted on the Station’s website. For those viewing/listening to the Station stream on the Internet or other non-broadcast means: Please be advised that you may be listening to a delayed stream of the broadcast signal, which may vary depending on your computer’s memory capacity and your connection. For that reason, we strongly recommend that you turn on your radio to the Station to participate in this Promotion via the on-air method of entry to be sure you are participating in “real time.” The Station assumes no responsibility for entrants not making timely phone calls to the Station as a result of the delays in the method of viewing/listening.


Up to 80 qualifying pairs (40 Qualifiers and 40 Friends) will be selected in the manner described in Section 3 of these Official Rules. Seven Qualifiers (and seven Friends) will be chosen each weekday from the on-air entrants (one pair per hour), and one Qualifier and Friend will be chosen each weekday from the online entrants. At approximately 5:00 pm ET each weekday during the Promotion Period, one Qualifier and his or her Friend will be selected in a Station-conducted random drawing from that weekday’s Qualifiers (and their Friends) as a potential Grand Prize winner. The Station will announce the names of the potential winning Qualifier and Friend on air immediately after the selection. Once the names are announced, either the Qualifier and/or Friend will have 10 minutes and 45 seconds to call the Station at 865-656-1045 to claim their Grand Prizes, which will be awarded to the winning Qualifier and Friend, provided at least one of them calls the Station as set forth herein. If neither of the potential winning Qualifier or Friend calls the Station within the specified time frame, an alternate potential winning Qualifier and his or her Friend will be selected by random drawing from among all remaining Qualifiers for that day and their names will be announced on-air. The new potential winning Qualifier and Friend will have 10 minutes and 45 seconds to call the Station to claim the Grand Prizes. This will continue until a Qualifier or Friend has claimed their Grand Prizes. Qualifiers will not roll over into subsequent weekday’s Grand Prize drawings. If none of the selected Qualifiers or Friends call the Station after their names have been announced within the specified time frame, the Grand Prizes will be awarded to a Qualifier and Friend from the following weekday, in addition to the designated Grand Prize for that weekday. If none of the selected Qualifiers call the Station after their name has been announced within the specified time frame on December 14, the Grand Prizes for December 14 will NOT be awarded.

b. Odds of a Qualifier winning the daily Grand Prize are 1:8.

c. Winning Qualifiers and their Friends must execute and return any required affidavit of eligibility and/or liability/publicity release by 5:00 pm ET on Friday, December 28, 2018 (or sooner if a shorter deadline is otherwise specified at the time of notification). If a potential winning Qualifier or Friend cannot be contacted, fails to complete, sign and return the required affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release within the required time period, or if a prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, or if the potential winning Qualifier or Friend does not meet the eligibility requirements set forth herein or is in breach of the Official Rules, that potential winning Qualifier or Friend will be disqualified and will forfeit the prize. The other member of the pair will, however, still win the prize, provided he or she meets the criteria set forth above.

d. Unless otherwise specified in the prize notification, all prizes or prize certificates may be picked up at the office of the Promoter at the address below. The winner will forfeit any prize or prize certificate not claimed within 30 days of winning (or sooner if otherwise specified at the time of notification). Prize or prize certificates will not be mailed to the winner without the winner’s prior written consent in which the winner shall agree to assume its risk of loss. The Promoter, its sponsor, or promotional partner are not responsible for the safe arrival of a prize or prize certificate.
