WCCP-FM signed on April 8, 1993 as an oldies station under the name "Foothills 104.9", but switched to all-sports by the end of the decade. Tommy Powell and Jeff Bright were mainly responsible for getting WCCP-FM 104.9 on the air in 1993 as an oldies station. Since 2003, WCCP-FM has been the flagship radio station for Clemson University Athletics. It is owned John and Blake Byrne, through licensee Byrne Acquisition Group, LLC.
On May 5, 2014 WCCP-FM moved from 104.9 FM to 105.5 FM and rebranded as "105.5 The Roar".
