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.
