Newton Media hired to assist in launch of new sports network
February 13, 2013 | Liberty University News Service
Liberty University has hired Newton Media to assist in the launch of Liberty Flames Sports Network, a new national TV and radio network to showcase live Liberty University sporting events. LFSN will be offered for a September 2013 launch to broadcast stations in every market, to regional cable networks, and to national satellite platforms. The program lineup will feature live football, basketball, and baseball games, as well as other sporting events, occasionally, on a tape-delayed basis. LFSN will also feature “College Sports Desk,” a 30-minute daily program including news and highlights from universities across the country, including other Christian institutions.
Chancellor and President Jerry Falwell, Jr. noted, “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. Athletics have always been important here at the world’s largest Christian university, so this is a natural extension for us.”
