Liberty University, with the assistance of Newton Media, will launch Liberty Flames Sports Network in September. The new national TV and radio network will feature live football, basketball, and baseball games, as well as other sporting events on a tape-delayed basis. LFSN will also air a 30-minute daily program featuring news and highlights from Liberty and other universities across the country.
LFSN is being offered to broadcast stations in every market, to regional cable networks, and to national satellite platforms.
Several stations across the U.S. have already committed to carrying LFSN, reaching millions of television households on Saturdays during the 2013-2014 academic year. LFSN will provide Liberty with exciting national programming opportunities, while adding value to the television and radio affiliates’ weekend schedule.
“This is a natural extension for us,” said Chancellor and President Jerry Falwell, Jr. “As Liberty has gained national prominence as an institution dedicated to a strong evangelical mission, this new network will increase our exposure to an entirely new audience.”
