While the sourcing on the story is a little shaky, it appears that Mix 107.3 is denying a prize to a listener who tried to call in when they called her name, but found their cellphone and Vonage home phone blocked. The station was accepting only local calls to their 800 number. While the caller’s Vonage number is indeed within the DC area, Vonage directs all 800 calls through their New York gateway, making her local call a “non-local” call. So, is the caller a winner? Or a loser because she didn’t knock on her neighbor’s door?

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
