For the second year in a row, the Flames Sports Network will produce the Flames Sports Desk weekly magazine show with the first show hitting the airwaves this week to preview the Wake Forest football game.

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 later in the year. The show was an award winning product last year, winning a Telly Award for excellence in broadcasting.

The weekly show is hosted by "Voice of the Flames" Alan York and FSN reporter Erin McKeown. Each show will have segments that feature Liberty's Olympic sports, community services projects, student-athlete features and more, giving all of Liberty's athletics programs added coverage.

The show will originally air on the Liberty Channel at Noon each Saturday. 

Additionally, several regional and national networks are already slated to pick up the 30-minute show: MASN (regional coverage), Legacy Network (regional coverage – Florida), 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 each Saturday morning, helping prepare Liberty fans for that day's football match-up.

During this week's show, York sits down for a one-on-one interview with Turner Gill, giving fans a better chance to meet Liberty's first-year head football coach.

The show also features an interview with Wake Forest Head Coach Jim Grobe, a segment with Liberty's assistant linebackers coach Carl Torbush, a look at Liberty's first-ever Flames Fan Fest and an interview with All-America return specialist Kevin Fogg.
