The Tiger Pregame Show on WCCP 104.9 FM is locked and loaded for its 10th consecutive season on the radio, starting with the 117th consecutive show live on location when Clemson opens the season in Atlanta vs. Auburn. 

Scott Rhymer, TPS
Host Since 2003
The show comes full circle in year ten with a touch of the new and a hint at the old. Scott Rhymer, host for all nine years dating back to the 2003 football season, returns as the host for what will be his 117th consecutive broadcast live on location where the Tigers play. 

“The common thread of this pregame show has always been to broadcast where the action is” Rhymer stated recently. “Our job is not only to inform fans and get them ready for the game, but to also paint the picture of a game day at Clemson or Tallahassee or Atlanta. Wherever the Tigers are, that is where we will be.” 

Former Clemson quarterback Willy Korn will join Scott Rhymer as co-host of WCCP’s popular Tiger Pregame Show this fall on the flagship station for Clemson Sports, 104.9 FM. 

Rhymer feels the show has taken another big step forward with the addition of Korn. “Willy has played at the highest level in high school at Byrnes. He’s also played at the highest level in Division I football at Clemson under Tommy Bowden and Dabo Swinney. His knowledge, expertise, and insight is something that adds another dimension to our analysis on the show”, Rhymer states. 

Willy Korn Joins WCCP And The Tiger Pregame Show
"What a tremendous privilege it is to be a co-host on WCCP's Tiger Pregame show with Scott Rhymer," Korn said Wednesday. "I am extremely excited to be a part of Clemson football again. My goal is to give Clemson fans the most in-depth and accurate analysis of each game that I possibly can."  

The Tiger Pregame Show is also giving a hint to its roots as Roy Philpott, Publisher of and host of the Roy Philpott show on WCCP 104.9 FM, returns to the show in the third hour each week to offer his unique insight into the game. Philpott served as host of the Tiger Pregame Show from 2003 until 2009 before joining the Tiger Tailgate Show on the Clemson Radio Network.

"It's a privilege to be on the air with Scott and now also working with Willy Korn," Philpott said. "The three of us will be there to both inform and entertain, while also getting fans ready for Clemson football. It's going to be a wild ride this season." 

Will Vandervort will provide player interviews and special segments during the three hour show. The 

Tiger Pregame Show will continue broadcasting six hours prior to kickoff up until three hours prior to kickoff. Game analysis, player interviews, coach interviews, and predictions are integral to the show’s content.
