Liberty Flames Football Show kicks off on Monday

LibertyWith less than two weeks remaining before Liberty kicks off the season at home against No. 22 Syracuse, the Liberty Flames Football Show returns to the radio airways on Monday night at 6 p.m.

The 60-minute weekly coach’s radio show moves to a new location for the 2019 season, as the Monday night show will be hosted at the Iron & Ale restaurant at 106 Cornerstone Street, Lynchburg.

Alan York, the radio play-by-play broadcaster for football and men’s basketball, hosts the call-in show, which traditionally will feature Liberty Flames Head Football Coach Hugh Freeze and a member of his coaching staff.

Due to recent health issues, Freeze will not be on the show Monday night debut; however, York will welcome Liberty Flames Co-Offensive Coordinators Kent Austin (quarterbacks coach) and Maurice Harris (wide receivers coach).

For the sixth 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: Lynchburg (93.3 FM, 100.9 FM and 1320 AM), Bedford (1350 AM), Roanoke (99.5 FM and 1240 AM) and Gretna/Danville (106.3 FM and 730 AM).

Team of Destiny: Inside Virginia Basketball’s Run to the 2019 National Championship, by Jerry Ratcliffe and Chris Graham, is available for $25.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
