A Message from L.M. Communications Regarding COVID-19

L.M. Communications has a commitment to being involved in the Charleston community, through both our listeners and our advertisers. We are involved in the promotion and execution of many events around the city of Charleston, many of which are being delayed, or canceled due to concerns regarding COVID-19. As an organization committed to both the safety and togetherness of our city, we seek to comply with all measures and guidelines put forth by the CDC, Governor Henry McMaster, and individual events. No matter the status of any event, we encourage you to take extra precautions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19: sanitize diligently, wash hands regularly, and stay home if you feel sick.

IMPORTANT RESOURCES

COVID-19 and the measures taken to prevent its spread have left many with questions on where to turn. Please refer to the following resources to help with any questions you may have:

·         Center for Disease Control – Nationwide Information on COVID-19

Our Office Hours Have Changed temporarily:

To properly ensure social distancing starting Monday, March 16th our offices will be closed to the public for at least two weeks. Due to our offices being closed prizes will not be available for pickup, pick up times will resume as our offices open back up to the public. This timeline may be extended due to additional Covid-19 developments.  Please check this page frequently or reach out to us at info@radioofcharleston.com if you have questions.  For more information on prizes, continue reading for more information below.

Our position on Prize Giveaways:

As events continue to cancel to prevent the spread of COVID-19, many prizes that our listeners have claimed may no longer be valid. We request your patience and understanding as we address each prize and cancellation. In the meantime, please be aware of the following policies:

Per our General Contest Rules:

·         L.M. Communications DOES NOT ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR EVENTS CANCELED AND/OR RESCHEDULED, AND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR REPLACING TICKETS/PRIZES ALREADY WON TO THE EVENTS CANCELED

·         PRIZES CANNOT BE SUBSTITUTED FOR ANY REASON

·         Although we recommend that you hold onto your tickets in case the event is rescheduled with the tickets still valid, we cannot guarantee that canceled events will be rescheduled, nor can we guarantee that rescheduled events will honor previously awarded tickets.

We provide tickets through a variety of means. Please see below for L.M. Communications Policies on canceled event prizing:

If tickets were won on-air: No exchanges will be made. However, winner information will still be retained in case the event is rescheduled.

If tickets were won online (via random drawing): No exchanges or refunds will be issued. However, winner information will still be retained in case the event is rescheduled.

**PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ABOVE ONLY APPLY TO CANCELED EVENTS. NO ACCOMMODATIONS WILL BE MADE FOR THOSE WHO THOSE WHO CHOOSE NOT TO ATTEND OF THEIR OWN VOLITION.
