Post Summer Ticket Contest Rules

WHTQ “Post Summer Ticket” Contest Rules Addendum

These contest rules are specific to the WHTQ Post Summer Ticket Contest (the “Contest”) conducted by NRG Media, LLC d/b/a WHTQ (the “Company” or the “Station”). These rules are intended to supplement the General Contest Rules, however, to the extent that the General Contest Rules differ from these rules, these rules will govern and control with respect to this Contest.  A copy of these specific contest rules and the Station’s General Contest Rules are available at the Station’s studio at 2301 Plover Road, Plover, WI  54467 during normal business hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday and on the contest page on the Station’s website at


The WHTQ “Post Summer Ticket” Contest will run from 09/03/19 through 09/20/19. The winners of the contest will be determined on 09/20/19.

Who Can Enter

To enter, contestants must be residents of the State of Wisconsin, who are 18 years of age or older on or before September 3, 2019.  You can only qualify once, and you can only win the Grand Prize once. Only one winner per household.

How to Play:

Listen to WHTQ during the contest period (09/03/19 -09/19/19) weekdays from 7am – 5pm. WHTQ will announce a keyword and ask you to text the keyword to (715) 345-0967. Text windows will be open for one (1) hour. A reply text will state what time the text window will close.  You can enter to qualify once per number for each keyword. A random text will be picked after each keyword expires, and that listener will become a qualifier in the “Post Summer Ticket” contest. WHTQ will call the qualifier to give them the news that they have qualified.  Message and Data Rates May Apply.

Then on Friday 9/20/19 five (5) qualifiers will be chosen randomly to win the grand prize. Two (2) concert tickets to see Post Malone at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul Minneapolis on Thursday, September 26, 2019. The winners will contact by phone between 8-9am and announced on air shortly after.

Due to the time delay that exists between the station’s analog over-the-air single and the station’s online webcast, listeners who listen to the station online may hear it later than those 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.

Grand Prize:

Five (5) Grand Prize will be awarded. Winners will receive two (2) tickets each to the Post Malone concert in Saint Paul, MN on Thursday, September 26, 2019. Winners are responsible for own transportation. The prize winners are responsible for paying all applicable taxes and will be issued an IRS 1099 form. Prize Value: $260.00.

Station reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value for all contests and giveaways.  Prizes are not redeemable for cash.  No transfer or assignment of prizes is allowed. Station is not responsible for concerts being canceled for whatever reason.

Prizes not claimed within 30 days of being awarded shall be considered forfeited and will become property of the Station.  Such a prize may be disposed of at the discretion of Station Management.

Station and contest sponsors are not responsible for a contestant’s inability to acquire transportation to a location to compete in an event, personal circumstances prohibiting participation in a contest or other circumstances beyond their control. Winners may make no substitution or transfer of prize. Nothing in any contest is intended to create or imply any contractual, fiduciary or other rights for the contestant or obligations, except as expressly stated by Station.
