The Flames Sports Hotline, a weekly radio call-in show spotlighting Liberty's football program, returns to the airwaves this evening at 7 p.m. The show is hosted weekly at Doc's Diner and features Flames Head Coach Turner Gill and a different member of his coaching staff each week.

For the second year in a row, the Flames Sports Hotline will air weekly on the ESPNinVA network, which includes the following ESPN Radio stations in the Central Virginia area: 93.3 FM (Lynchburg), 106.3 FM (Danville), 1240 AM (Roanoke), 1320 AM (Lynchburg) and 1350 AM (Bedford).

The weekly show is hosted locally in Lynchburg on Liberty University's campus at Doc's Diner, and the restaurant is open to the student body and the general public. The show is broadcast live throughout the 50's-style diner and fans are encouraged to participate during the call-in segments.

Alan York, the radio play-by-play broadcaster for football and men's basketball, hosts the call-in show, which features Liberty's third-year head football coach and will open this week with a segment with Flames' defensive backs coach Marshall Roberts.

Roberts is the senior veteran on Liberty's coaching staff, having spent 11 years as a coach on Liberty Mountain. During his decade-plus of coaching at Liberty, Roberts had an impact on several of his players, with 13 defensive backs taking home Big South all-conference honors under his tutelage.

Liberty's defensive backs have played a large part in the Flames' defense being ranked No. 2 in the country in passing yards allowed in 2014 (allowing 107.5 passing yards per game).

Following the opening segment with Roberts, York will welcome in Gill for the remainder of the hour-long show. Gill will recap Liberty's 38-21 victory over No. 25 Bryant, the Flames' third win in a row, and preview this week's road contest at Indiana State.

Following the first few segments with Gill, York will open up the phone lines and field questions from the radio listening audience or those seated inside Doc's Diner. Fans unable to make it out to Doc's Diner each Monday night may call in at (877) 401-9041 to participate in the weekly show.

Those not able to participate in the call-in portion of the show can also email their questions for Gill to LFSN@liberty.edu, prior to the start of the show.

Flames Nation fans can listen to the show locally by tuning their radio dials to any of the ESPNinVA network of stations in the Central Virginia area. The show will also air live online at LibertyFlames.com and can be heard by clicking on the link above.
