The Flames Sports Hotline, a weekly radio call-in show spotlighting Liberty's football program, returns to the airwaves this evening at 6 p.m. The show is hosted weekly at the Liberty University Bookstore, featuring 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 ESPNinVA network, which includes the following ESPN Radio stations in the Central Virginia area: 93.3 FM (Lynchburg), 106.3 FM (Danville), 1240 AM (Roanoke), 1320 AM (Lynchburg) and 1350 AM (Bedford).

Fans unable to listen to the show via a traditional radio station can also listen via the link provided above or by downloading the My Journey FM mobile app. The app is available in both the Google Play and iTunes mobile app stores.

The Liberty University Bookstore is located across the street from Williams Stadium in the Speakman parking lot. The show broadcasts live throughout the Barnes and Nobles bookstore and fans are encouraged to participate during the call-in segments.

Alan York, the radio play-by-play broadcaster for football and men's basketball, hosts the call-in show, which features Liberty's fourth-year head football coach Turner Gill. The show will open weekly with a different member of Gill's coaching staff, continuing this week with assistant head coach and offensive line coach Dennis Wagner.

Wagner has guided the most recognized group on Liberty's roster during the last three seasons. Nine of his players have earned All-Big South honors and six players have been named to the VaSID All-State teams.

In 2013, four of Wagner's starting five offensive linemen earned all-conference honors, including first-team selection Hunter Steward. Prior to the start of his senior season, Steward was selected in the first round of the 2013 CFL Draft (No. 6 overall pick), making him the fourth player in program history to be selected in the CFL Draft.

Jonathan Burgess and Mitch Hanson earned All-Big South and VaSID All-State first-team honors in 2014. Hanson was also rewarded for his hard work in the classroom, as he was named the Big South Scholar-Athlete of the Year and a Capital One Academic All-American.

Following the opening segment with Wagner, York will welcome in Gill for the remainder of the hour-long show. Gill will recap Liberty's 34-13 road setback at Southern Illinois and look ahead to Liberty's pending FBS matchup with Georgia State on Saturday in the Georgia Dome.

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 the Liberty University Bookstore. Fans unable to be on location for the show 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 LFSN@liberty.edu, prior to the start of the show.

Flames Nation fans can listen to the show locally by tuning their radio dials to any of the ESPNinVA network of stations in the Central Virginia area. The show also airs live online at LibertyFlames.com and can be heard by clicking on the link above.
