Liberty men’s basketball switching to WLNI, WFIR

liberty-flames21Beginning with Liberty’s men’s basketball game on Jan. 3, 2015 (vs. Presbyterian), Liberty Flames Sports Network radio broadcasts will move from the Victory FM Radio Network to WLNI and WFIR radio stations.

WLNI can be heard in the greater Lynchburg area on 105.9 FM, while WFIR covers the greater Roanoke market on 960 AM and 107.3 FM (alternative station in Roanoke – WVBE 610 AM/97.3 FM for broadcasts on Jan. 3, 10, 22 and Feb. 14, 28).

Due to conflicts with existing programming on WLNI and WFIR, several of the Liberty Flames Sports Network men’s basketball radio broadcasts will still air on WRVL/Journey FM (88.3 FM) to assist with the transition.

Below is a complete men’s basketball radio broadcast schedule for the remainder of the 2014-15 season:

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.
