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 assistant head coach and linebackers coach Carl Torbush.
Torbush is one of two Liberty assistant coaches with previous head coaching experience, serving as head coach at North Carolina for three years (1998-2000) and Louisiana Tech for one year (1987). As head coach of the Tar Heels, Torbush guided North Carolina to the 1998 Las Vegas Bowl. In total, Torbush has been a part of 11 teams that have made bowl appearances.
Torbush's linebackers have played a large part in the Flames' defense success in 2012, helping the Flames rank No. 15 in the country in total defense, No. 24 in rushing defense and No. 35 in passing defense.
Following the opening segment with Torbush, York will welcome in Gill for the remainder of the hour-long show. Gill will recap Liberty's performance in its last non-conference regular season game of the year against Concord, plus look ahead to the Flames' road matchup against Big South rival Coastal Carolina.
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.
