Clemson Sports & Campus Marketing, a JMI Sports property, announced a partnership with WSPA-TV for new Clemson sports programming. The CBS affiliate owned by Nexstar Media Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXST) serves Greenville-Spartanburg-Asheville-Anderson, SC (DMA # 37). Produced and distributed by WSPA-TV 7 News, the all-new programming will bring Tigers fans exclusive coverage with shows featuring Clemson University’s football, basketball and other NCAA Division I athletic programs.
“Inside Clemson Football with Dabo Swinney,” will air on Mondays at 7:30 p.m. on WSPA-TV beginning Sept 4. In addition, the show will broadcast on four other Nexstar stations located throughout South Carolina and Georgia, with additional distribution to one Sinclair Broadcasting station serving the Columbia, SC market and on Fox Sports South (Note: the programming schedule is specific to each station; air-dates/times are included in the table below).
The best part of watching Clemson football is seeing some of the top players in the Atlantic Coast Conference battle-it-out for the division title, as well as against other national programs. The completely reinvented show, “Inside Clemson Football with Dabo Swinney” will give fans a glimpse of what it’s like to be a Clemson Tiger as well as insider access to the team and its most talented playmakers. The Voice of the Tigers Don Munson and WSPA-TV Sports Director Pete Yanity will engage in exclusive interviews with Head Coach Dabo Swinney and other Clemson football staff and players to examine what it takes to support a National Championship Football program and how to ensure the Tigers remain “All-In” – succeeding both on and off the field. In addition, the program will take viewers inside each game with detailed analysis, while offering a look ahead to upcoming opponents.
WSPA-TV’s coverage at Memorial Stadium (Death Valley) and other Clemson sports venues will incorporate unique features such as game day highlights and weather forecasts. In addition, the station’s “Inside Clemson Football” cameras will take fans behind the scenes with the Tigers at the new Allen N. Reeves Football Complex for an exclusive look at how the team is preparing for what promises to be an action-packed 2017-2018 season. Each week, WSPA-TV will not only speak with the coaches and players, but will also interview the unsung heroes who help build Clemson’s winning team.
