Announcing Liberty Live Call-in Radio Show and Interactive Video Webcast

January 16, 2009

Mat Staver, Dean of the Liberty University School of Law and Founder of Liberty Counsel, will host Liberty Live, a daily radio program beginning Monday, January 19, on 126 stations of American Family Radio’s new AFR Talk network. Joining Staver as a co-host is Matt Barber, Associate Dean for Career and Professional Development at the law school.

The one-hour live call-in program will air at 4:00 PM EST Monday through Friday and will feature leading political and religious leaders discussing topics of cultural and political interest. Sarah Seitz, Legal Director for the Liberty Center for Law & Policy in Washington, D.C., will provide a weekly update on public policy from the capital. Each program will also bring a fresh analysis of the latest news from a Christian worldview, with an open line forum and an interactive blog. The program will simulcast at and will be available for podcast.

On January 21, the day after the Inauguration, Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) is scheduled to discuss what he expects from President Barak Obama’s administration and the 111th Congress. Congressman Franks serves on the Judiciary and the Armed Services Committees.

“Whether it’s same-sex marriage, abortion, the appointment of judges, the economy, the media, or entertainment, we will be on the air every day, empowering millions of listeners nationwide to stand up for liberty,” Staver said. “This program will also be a great way to feature Liberty University as we draw from the wisdom of many experts in every field at the university to discuss the school’s academic and cultural impact on the Nation.”

Staver continued, “I believe that the next generation of world leaders will be trained on the campus of Liberty University. Liberty and the affiliated ministries will become the epicenter for a new conservative movement. Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr.’s vision to expand the excellence and impact of the university will reverberate around the world.”

Staver is Founder of Liberty Counsel, a premier Christian religious liberty legal organization, which sponsors Liberty Live along with Liberty University and Liberty Alliance Action, a nonprofit grassroots lobbying organization, where Staver serves as Chairman.
