How to Enter for a Chance to Win

Contest entry period begins Friday, May 1, 2015 at 7:30 am (ET) and ends at 4:30pm (ET) on Friday, May 29, 2015. There is 1 way to enter:


Listen to 107.9 The Link weekdays from Monday, May 1, 2015 through Friday, May 29, 2015 at 7:30am, 10:30am, 2:30pm, and 4:30pm* for the cue to call. When the cue to call airs, the correct caller to 704-570-1079 will become a qualifier, subject to confirmation of eligibility. Confirmed qualifiers will receive a pair of Foster Grant sunglasses and be entered into that day’s grand prize drawing. Eighty (80) qualifiers will be selected during the contest period.


Online listeners to the Station web stream may experience a reception delay of up to one minute.  Listening to the station’s over-the-air broadcast is the best way to participate in this contest.

Caller qualification is subject to FULL phone call completion, and the verification of the caller’s name, address, home phone number, and work/cell phone number, all of which must be provided prior to completion of the call.  If a call is disconnected for any reason before it can be completed, the next caller taken will be deemed the correct caller.  Contest calls will not be accepted at any other number.


Each weekday during the contest period, after the final cue to call airs that day, one (1) grand prize winner will be randomly selected from all eligible qualifiers that day. Grand prize winner will be announced on-air at approximately 5:00pm each week day*, and will also be contacted by phone.  Initially-selected winner must confirm acceptance of prize within 48 hours of initial announcement or risk disqualification and selection of a new winner. A total of Twenty (20) grand prize winners will be chosen during the contest period.


*There will not be any qualifiers or grand prize winners on Monday May 25th due to the observance of Memorial Day
