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 third year in a row, the Flames Sports Hotline will air weekly on the Victory FM radio network (88.3 FM – Lynchburg, Roanoke, Danville), the flagship radio station for the Flames Sports Network.

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 "Voice of the Flames," hosts the call-in show, which features Gill, and will open with a segment with cornerbacks coach and recruiting coordinator Marshall Roberts.

Roberts is the senior member of Liberty's football coaching staff, having joined the staff as an assistant coach in 2004. When Gill took over Liberty's program, he adjusted Roberts' coaching responsibilities and placed him over the program's recruiting efforts.

Roberts' cornerbacks rank among Liberty's leaders in tackles, including senior Kevin Fogg, who is tied for third on the team with 18 stops (13 solo, five assisted). The play of Liberty's cornerbacks has helped the Flames rank No. 11 in the country in pass defense (144.25 passing yards allowed per game) and No. 17 in total defense (308.25 total yards allowed 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 bye week practices, plus look ahead to the Flames' Big South opener against Gardner-Webb on Saturday at Williams Stadium.

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 FSNbroadcast@liberty.edu, prior to the start of the show.

Flames fans can listen to the show locally by tuning their radio dials to Victory FM (88.3 FM Lynchburg) or one of their local affiliates for the Victory FM Radio Network. The show will also air live online at LibertyFlames.com and can be heard by clicking on the link above.
