In an effort to continue to expand its coverage of Liberty Athletics, the Flames Sports Network has released this week's showing of the Flames SportsDesk.

The weekly 30-minute, magazine-style show focuses on Liberty's men's and women's basketball programs this week, following a bye week for the football team.

The weekly show is hosted by "Voice of the Flames" Alan York and FSN reporter Erin McKeown. Additionally, each show will have a general athletics or an Olympic sport segment, giving all of Liberty's athletics programs added coverage.

The show will originally air on the Liberty Channel four times a week – Thursday (8:30 p.m.), Friday (8 a.m.) and Saturday (12 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.).

Additionally, several regional and national networks are slated to pick up the 30-minute show: MASN (regional coverage/Saturday mornings at 9:30 a.m.), 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 most weeks on Friday or Saturday.

During this week's show, York opens with a preview of the 2011-12 men's basketball season. He interviews head coach Dale Layer and senior point guard Jesse Sanders.

McKeown then turns the program's focus to the women's basketball team, which is the preseason favorite to win its 14th Big South Conference title. She sits down for interviews with head coach Carey Green and redshirt junior forward Tolu Omotola.

The show then wraps up when York interviews Big South Conference Commissioner Kyle Kallander, discussing a variety of conference issues.
