The Flames Sports Hotline, a weekly radio call-in show spotlighting Liberty's football program, returns to the airwaves this Monday evening at 6 p.m. The show is hosted weekly at the Liberty University Bookstore and traditionally features Flames Head Coach Turner Gill.

For the fourth year in a row, the Flames Sports Hotline will air weekly on the ESPNinVA network, which includes the following ESPN Radio stations in the Central Virginia area: 93.3 FM (Lynchburg), 730 AM (Gretna/Danville), 1240 AM (Roanoke), 1320 AM (Lynchburg) and 1350 AM (Bedford).

Fans unable to listen to the show via a traditional radio station can also listen via the link provided above or by downloading the My Journey FM mobile app. The app is available in both the Google Play and iTunes mobile app stores.

The Liberty University Bookstore is located across the street from Williams Stadium in the Speakman parking lot. The show broadcasts live throughout the Barnes and Nobles bookstore and fans are encouraged to participate during the call-in segments.

Alan York, the radio play-by-play broadcaster for football and men's basketball, hosts the call-in show, which traditionally features Liberty's fifth-year head football coach Turner Gill, as well as a member of his coaching and administrative staff.

Monday's show will feature two members of Gill's football staff and will not have a segment with Gill. Defensive Coordinator Robert Wimberly and Assistant AD for Football Administration Paul Rutigliano will share time during this week's show.

Wimberly is no stranger to Liberty, as his addition to Turner Gill's coaching staff in January 2012 marked the beginning of his second stint as an assistant coach with the Flames. Wimberly previously worked on Liberty's staff for five seasons (2004-08) before he joined Gill's at Buffalo in 2009 to coach the Bulls' linebackers. He also followed Gill to Kansas for two season (2010-11) before returning to Liberty.

Rutigliano has been a part of Liberty's football program for more than two decades, including his second stint with the team that began in January 2006. In his current position as Assistant Athletics Director for Football Administration, Rutigliano oversees the overall operations for the football program. His responsibilities include budget management and business operations, while working closely with the President's Office on specially assigned projects.

Throughout the hour-long program, York will open up the phone lines and field questions from the radio listening audience or those seated inside the Liberty University Bookstore. Fans unable to be on location for the show each Monday night may call in at (877) 401-9041 to participate in the weekly show.

Those not able to participate in the call-in portion of the show can also email their questions to, prior to the start of the show.

Flames Nation fans can listen to the show locally by tuning their radio dials to any of the ESPNinVA network of stations in the Central Virginia area. The show also airs live online at and can be heard by clicking on the link above.
