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 begins with a look at the men's basketball team's 82-80 victory at Campbell on Feb. 13, including a postgame interview with head coach Dale Layer.

The show then turns its attention to the Lady Flames' 69-54 home win over Winthrop on Feb. 14, in a battle between the top two teams in the Big South standings. The FSN crew breaks down the contest and interviews head coach Carey Green and redshirt freshman Ashley Rininger.

Next up is an interview with FSN Player of the Week Tavares Speaks from the men's basketball team, followed by a breakdown of the football team's signing class.

The show wraps up with an interview with head baseball coach Jim Toman as the Flames' 2013 season gets underway.
