Tiger Pregame Show Thursday Afternoon Broadcast From Playmakers

The Tiger Pregame Show Invades Playmakers In Anderson For Thursday Afternoon Broadcast!

It's not a Saturday, but The Tiger Pregame Show will be on the air for Thursday afternoon Clemson pregame information!

The Tiger Pregame Show, a game day tradition for Clemson football fans on Saturdays, will broadcast its 151st consecutive show Thursday from Playmakers in Anderson, SC to prepare fans for the Wake Forest Game!

The show, as always, will be broadcast on WCCP 105.5 FM and  Broadcast times for Thursday's show will be from 1:30-4:30 as Scott Rhymer will get Tiger fans ready for the 21st ranked Tigers and Wake Forest and their "House of Horrors" BB&T Field.

“Thursday road games are unique for sure”, Rhymer states. "Fans may be at work and listening to the show.  They may also take off a bit early or eat a late lunch by coming by Playmakers and getting their Clemson football fix."
Former Clemson Running Back Reggie Merriweather will once again co-host the show and be on site at Playmakers for the 2nd and 3rd hour of the show!

The show will also tap into the continued emergence of Social Media as part of Clemson fan’s game day expectations. 

“No longer do Clemson fans have to sit beside a radio in order to listen to the show”, Rhymer points out.  “While you are out and about Saturday or in Tallahassee tailgating, our fans can stream the show via the WCCP App on their smart phones”.

“But that is not the only reason we embrace the technology.  In addition to streaming the show, we also want to engage fans during the show to allow them to give their opinions and insight into the show that we can use while broadcasting this Saturday.  That’s the really exciting part of embracing the technology as it allows fans to do more than just listen.  It allows them to engage.”

The Tiger Pregame Show format will continue broadcasting 6 hours prior to kickoff and ends 3 hours prior to kickoff, which means this week's show is from 1:30-4:30.  The show will continue to offer in-depth analysis of the upcoming game, focusing on X’s and O’s of what fans should expect to see on the field during the game.

Segments for Thursday include up to the minute game day weather conditions, Top 25 Report, ACC and SEC Game Breakdowns, Injury Reports for both Clemson and Wake Forest, and a historical look back at this day in Clemson football history.

Don Munson, the new Voice of the Tigers, will join the show live each week to give his unique perspective inside the football program and final preparations for the Wake game.  

And, just like in the previous 11 years, the show will close the final hour with the Keys to the Game and game day predictions.

Each week, Dabo Swinney, Chad Morris, and Brent Venables will provide audio interviews to set the stage for the game.  The show will also have the key Clemson players on air so that they can give their perspective from the field.

Playmakers in Anderson is located at 3321 North Main St near the Anderson Mall. Information on specials that will be offered during the show will be sent out via the Tiger Pregame Show Social Media pages later this week.
