Flames SportsDesk Revisited: Nov. 12
In an effort to continue to expand its coverage of Liberty Athletics, the Flames Sports Network has released this week's showing of the Flames SportsDesk.
The weekly 30-minute, magazine-style show will focus on Liberty's football program during the fall, before shifting to the Flames' basketball and baseball teams later in the year.
The weekly show is hosted by "Voice of the Flames" Alan York and FSN reporter Erin McKeown. Additionally, each show will have a general athletics or an Olympic sport segment, giving all of Liberty's athletics programs added coverage.
The show will originally air on the Liberty Channel four times a week – Thursday (8:30 p.m.), Friday (8 a.m.) and Saturday (12 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.).
Additionally, several regional and national networks are already slated to pick up the 30-minute show: MASN (regional coverage/Saturday mornings at 9:30 a.m.), CTN (regional coverage - Florida) and WSET 13.2 (local/regional coverage - Digital 2 station for WSET - Channel 13). Fans wishing to watch the weekly show on these networks are encouraged to check their local listings for these stations.
Finally, the Flames SportsDesk will also be available on www.LibertyFlames.com most Saturday mornings, helping prepare Liberty fans for that day's football match-up.
During this week's show, York opens by talking with sixth-year head football coach Danny Rocco. The two open with a segment where they recap Liberty's home regular-season finale against VMI, plus preview next weekend's Big South Championship game against Stony Brook.
McKeown visits with Assistant AD for Compliance Mike Hagen, plus talks with senior wide receiver Chris Summers after he became Liberty's all-time career receptions leader. Finally, this week's Flames SportsDesk closes with another tailgating segment with Athletics Hall of Fame broadcaster Jerry Edwards and will have another installment of "Getting Fit with Bill" segment with head strength coach Bill Gillespie.
