CLEMSON UNIVERSITY — Starting September 4, Clemson fans will enjoy a new and exciting OrangeandWhite.com Tiger Tailgate Show. The fun fans have come to love in their favorite pre-game radio show will grow in the new season with new hosts and guests, along with lots of fan participation and chances to win great prizes.
The new host of the show is David Stein. David is a huge Clemson fan and he hosts the syndicated Celebration of Life Through Sports carried nationally by Sporting News Radio. The unique show airs locally on 104.9 The Drive from 2A-6A. You can also see David on The Golf Channel's Top 10 Shows.
David's road to The Tiger Tailgate Show is a powerful story. His love for Clemson began with the miracle recovery of Mickey Plyler's (WCCP-FM Morning Host) son, Ryan who was in a car accident. David came to visit Ryan and immediately embraced everything that Clemson represents.
Quote from Tiger Tailgate Show Host, David Stein:
"I am amazed at the warmth and love that everyone has for each other. When I saw an entire community put their arms around Ryan, I knew that this was where I was supposed to be. I am blessed with having relationships with so many wonderful people here at Clemson. It didn't hurt that my first game was a huge win at Death Valley! It will be a joy to share The TTS experience with my Clemson Family."
