Westwood One

Bill Gunter, Tim Hill and Jen Jensen kick off the conversation about the Gamecocks every Monday-Friday morning. Typically that talk centers around University of South Carolina sports, but occasionally Bill wants to talk about doughnuts and make up nonsense words which Tim has to make fun of him for. Fortunately, Jen is there to keep the Gas Baggy Hot Takes on track, which is a natural fit for a girl who loves her auto racing.
