Entercom Liable for $16.57 Million In Sacramento Radio Contest Death

The contest was named 'Hold your wee for a Wii.'

The jury in the wrongful death trial of 28-year-old mom Jennifer Lea Strange holds both Entercom's Sacramento subsidiary (radio station KDND 107.9 The End) and the Philadelphia-based parent company Entercom Communications liable.

The Sacramento Bee says the 7-man, 5-woman jury awarded damages of about half what widower Billy Strange was asking for - at least $34 million. His wife Jennifer died January 12, 2007 of water intoxication, hours after participating in a morning show contest named "Hold your wee for a Wii." No statement yet from Entercom - which could appeal the large award.

  1. Your quote: "No statement yet from Entercom - which could appeal the large award."

    Come on...this is amerikka and EVERY large corporation appeals these rulings because they want ALL the money to stay in THEIR pockets. God forbid they pay for their misdeeds, and if they have to, it won't come out the their profits, they'll just pass it on to the comsumers or ad buyers.
