Flames Sports Desk Revisited: Dec. 1
For the second year in a row, the Flames Sports Network will produce the Flames Sports Desk weekly magazine show, hitting the airwaves each week to provide the latest insights into Liberty Athletics.
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 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 and MASN each Saturday at 8 a.m.
Additionally, several regional and national networks are already slated to pick up the 30-minute show: 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 Monday for the remainder of the athletic year.
During this week's show, Nick Pierce fills in for York. He recaps the Big South champion Flames' football season with head coach Turner Gill, offensive coordinator Aaron Stamn and defensive coordinator Robert Wimberly.
McKeown then chats with head coach Shane Pinder and Big South Player and Freshman of the Year Caroline Douglas about the volleyball team's successful 2012 season.
The Flames Sports Network crew recaps the Lady Flames' Preseason WNIT victory over Grambling State from Nov. 16. McKeown also receives some instruction and tips from Karyl Bacon of the Liberty strength and conditioning staff.
