Roy Philpott started the Fox Sports-affiliated web site CUTigers.com in 2001, and has covered Clemson University sports on a fulltime basis ever since. CUTigers is one of the largest team-specific web sites on the Internet, covering Clemson football, basketball, baseball and recruiting.
Philpott, a 1999 Clemson graduate, serves as play-by-play man for Clemson baseball and Lady Tiger basketball- both for WCCP and the Clemson Tiger Sports Network. He also has served as network host for Clemson football pre- and post-game shows for the last three years.
In addition to his play-by-play responsibilities at Clemson, Philpott has also worked with ESPN’s family of networks during Championship Week, calling conference championship games for the Atlantic Sun (ESPN2) and WAC (ESPNU) in men’s and women’s basketball. He also worked with ESPN3 with college baseball, basketball and high school football broadcasts as well.
His television career began in 2008 with WLOS/My40, Asheville’s (NC) ABC affiliate. During his time there, he was the lead play-by-play man for Friday Night Lights (high school football), Southern Conference football and select SoCon/Big South basketball games.
Philpott has been in sports talk radio in upstate South Carolina for the better part of the last five years as well. He can currently be heard weekdays from 12-3 PM at wccpfm.com or 104.9 FM WCCPM.
