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 focused 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 Sports Desk will also be available on each Monday for the remainder of the athletic year.

This week's show recaps the Liberty men's basketball team's 75-70 home triumph over Radford on Feb. 5, including a postgame interview with head coach Dale Layer.

The show also features an interview with FSN Player of the Week Cori Gary of the women's swimming team as well as a feature on the swimming program as part of the year-long celebration of Title IX's 40th anniversary.

Former Liberty football standout Chris Summers, now of the Minnesota Vikings, then provides an update on his career, during an interview with Mike Tilley.
