The time delay between Over-the-Air Analog Single and Internet Broadcast: Due to the time delay that exists between the station’s analog over-the-air single ad the station’s online webcast, listeners who listen to the station online may hear it later than listening to the station’s analog over-the-air single. As a result, the odds of an online listener winning this contest may be diminished.
