For the second year in a row, the Flames Sports Network will produce the Flames Sports Desk weekly magazine show, hitting airwaves each week to provide the latest insights into Liberty Athletics.

The weekly 30-minute, magazine-style show will focus on Liberty's football program during the fall, before shifting to the Flames' basketball and baseball 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.

Additionally, several regional and national networks are already slated to pick up the 30-minute show: MASN (regional coverage), 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 SportsDesk will also be available on each Saturday morning, helping prepare Liberty fans for that day's football match-up.

During this week's show, York sits down for a one-on-one interview with Turner Gill, recapping Liberty's 28-26 setback to No. 16/13 Lehigh, plus looked at Liberty's bye-week plans.

The show also features an interview with new head women's tennis coach Jeff Maren and FSN Player of the Week Sarah Gipe (field hockey). The Flames Sports Desk Fundamentals 101 segment returns with a basketball defensive drill, plus the Flames Sports Desk catches up with the Elmers sisters from the women's soccer team.
