The WCBS promotion department will call back the 88th caller who will then be required to provide all information requested, including their first and last name, complete address including zip code, daytime and evening telephone numbers, and their date of birth to be eligible to win.

There will be up to a total of forty six (46) prize winners selected on-air during the Promotion Period.

Due to delays in the online streaming of the Station’s broadcast signal, listeners to the online stream may not be able to participate in or may be disadvantaged in participating in on-air contests.
