Radio Contest Winner Sues Over Candy Bar


LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A woman who won a radio contest that promised the winner ``100 grand'' sued after the station gave her a candy bar - a Nestle's 100 Grand - instead of $100,000.

Norreasha Gill filed a complaint Wednesday in Fayette District Court against Atlanta-based Cumulus Media, which owns WLTO-FM in Lexington. Gill, 28, says the station and its parent company breached a contract to pay $100,000 to the contest winner.

Night host DJ Slick sponsored the station's contest to ``win 100 grand,'' Gill said in the lawsuit. Gill won by listening to the radio show for several hours and being the 10th caller at a specified time.

She went to the radio station the next morning to pick up her prize, but was asked to return later. When she got home, she found that the station manager had left a message explaining she had won a 100 Grand candy bar, not money.

Later, he offered her $5,000, Gill said.

"I said I wanted $95,000 more,'' she said. ``Nobody would watch and listen for two hours for a candy bar.''

DJ Slick did not return an e-mail from the Herald-Leader, but he said on his Web site that he had left his job. WLTO and Cumulus declined to comment, identify DJ Slick by his given name or say whether he was fired.

Experts said the radio station could face action by the Federal Communications Commission, which licenses radio stations.

FCC regulations say contest descriptions can't be false or deceptive and that stations must conduct contests as advertised. Stations in two other states have been fined for contests that told listeners they'd won cash prizes without specifying they were in the Italian or Turkish lira, not the U.S. dollar.

Before her family went to sleep that night, Gill says, she promised her children - ages 1, 5 and 11 - that they'd have a minivan, a shopping spree, a savings account and a home with a back yard.

"What hurts me is they were going to get me in front of my children, all dressed up, and hand me a candy bar, after all those promises I made to them,'' she told the Lexington Herald-Leader. "You just don't do that to people.''


LMFAO

THIS IS RICH!!!

I never thought someone would pull such a stunt on the radio. OH man thats classic.

First of all, nothing screams white trash like that chick. That's utterly ridiculous. If all they said was "100 Grand" and they made no allusion to money itself, then they're fine. The old saying is "fool me once, shame on me." I can understand a level of outrage and indignation, and honestly $5,000 is more than fair, but if she goes to court, she ain't getting $100K. She ain't even gonna get the $5K and personally I think it's just absolutely deplorable that she feels entitled to something at all...Bitch, you listened to a radio station and then dialled a number on your phone!! You deserve nothing.

To the question, with $100 Grand I would pay off my house, and then make sure it's furnished, stocked and sided with nothing but the best of what I want. Anything leftover can buy more beer.

Late.

i hope she gets the whole 100 grand, serves them right for the false advertisement for ratings. They knew what they were doing, and it wasnt right.

Well according to FCC rules and for the looks of thing it won't even make it to the doors. They'll have t ably and give the 100,000 dollars because they never specified that it was a candy bar. In other words she has the right to complain about it. Back at home something like this happened but with a car.

That's the basic premise for my take. If they insinuated that they were in fact giving away money, or that the winner would be "100 grand richer," then hell yeah they have to give her the money, but if they only referred to the prize as "100 Grand" and didn't suggest anything about it being money then she's stupid.

Maybe it's just because I'm aware of the 100 Grand Candy Bar and that particular trick has been done before in practical jokery...in fact if I'm not mistaken, that is the entire reason behind calling a candy bar "100 Grand."

With $100,000 I would pay off my house, get Brandy and I each a newer car, build a fence to keep my annoying neighbors out, get a pool, and pay off some debts. Oh...I'd also save $300 of it for a nice fat ounce of some funk.

What century is this woman living in?
The minivan is easy 25 grand and houses go for 3 to 4 times that candy bar.

Didn't they do this on an episode of the Simpsons or some other TV show before?


Like Glue has stated, unless they stated it as being monetary, she shouldn't get anything.

I'd use the 100 grand to get out of this hell hole neighborhood full of dick juggling cunts and move to a decent neighborhood and buy a two story house. I'd also buy a membership at the local YMCA, get a fairly decent car and invest the rest I suppose.

When i read the title, i was Quickly Reminded of This.

i can't believe that Somebody would actually do this, but the Radio Deserves it for false advertising.

and i would buy many things with 100 grand. first a new computer, then Get my teeth fixed, then the rest on whatever else i want.
