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.

This week's show features interviews with head baseball coach Jim Toman and head softball coach Paul Wetmore, providing updates on their teams' seasons.

Head track & field coach Brant Tolsma recaps the 2013 Big South Outdoor Track & Field Championships, which saw the Flames and Lady Flames sweep the team titles on their home track.

FSN Athlete of the Week Shea Thomas of the men's tennis team is interviewed, before the show concludes with a feature on the inspiring story of women's basketball manager Carley Cottingham.
