Thanks to our sponsors:

2020 is your chance to win $20,000 with the K-Hits $20,000 Mixtape!

This is a local contest for K-Hits listeners only, and you’ll have more than 80 chances to win during the month of January. Every time we play 20 songs in a row, we also give you a chance at $20,000. Wow!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Using the song list below, pick which three songs you think are on the K-Hits $20,000 Mixtape.
  2. Enter the contest by listening to K-Hits at 8:30am, 10:30am, 12:30pm, and 2:30pm weekdays from January 2-31, 2020. This is when we’ll give you a word to text to us at 916-587-1015. Each contest time is a new contest, so you need to text in the word we announce each time if you want to be in that contest pool.
  3. If we call you as the contestant, tell us your three songs. If they’re the ones on the mixtape, you win $20,000!

Something Cool: Even if you’re a finalist and don’t win the grand prize, you’ll still be entered into a drawing that will happen after the contest. The drawing will award a guaranteed $1,000 winner!

Pro Tip: Even if you’re not a finalist, listen to whoever is the finalist because that will help you learn which 3-song-set has been chosen. If it’s wrong, you’ll know not to use those same three together when you’re a finalist.

Pro Tip #2: Download the K-Hits mobile app. Why? First, you can sign up for contest alerts so you get a reminder to listen and play along. Second, you can see which guesses other listeners have already made so you don’t make those same guesses. Whoa! Get the app now!

Pro Tip #3: Follow us on social media because we’ll post hints there too. Follow us on Instagram here, and “Like” us on Facebook here.
