A former college wrestling coach from the upper Midwest and a current high school from the East will be the guests for the “On The Mat” broadcast for Wed., Oct. 16, the weekly broadcast announced Tuesday.
This week's guests will be Jeff Swenson and Bob Keenan.
Swenson is currently the director of athletics at Augsburg College in Minneapolis. He was formerly the head wrestling coach for the Auggies, leading his team to 10 NCAA Division III wrestling championships.
Keenan is a wrestling coach and vice principal at Milburn High School in New Jersey. The phrase "as seen on TV" is appropriate, as Keenan was recently featured on “Cousins Undercover” on HGTV. Cousins was surprised with a homemaker over, which included a new wrestling room and a call to Dan Gable.
“On the Mat" is a presentation of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum. The show can be heard live on the Internet at www.kcnzam.com or locally in Northeast Iowa each Wednesday from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. Central on AM 1650, The Fan.
The show will be rebroadcast on Thursday, October 17 at 7 p.m. Central.
