Andy Hamilton, Lee Kemp to go ‘On the Mat’ this week



This week's edition of "On the Mat" will feature Andy Hamilton and Lee Kemp.

Hamilton currently covers wrestling for the Iowa City Press-Citizen. His articles have appeared in a variety of prominent wrestling publications. Considered one of the best wrestling journalists in the nation, Hamilton was selected by the National Wrestling Media Association as their journalist of the year in 2003.

Kemp is arguably the greatest wrestler the United States has ever produced. While competing at the University of Wisconsin, Kemp was a four-time NCAA finalist and a three-time NCAA champion. His career college record was 143-6-1.

Internationally, Kemp won three World titles in 1978, 1979, and 1982, becoming the first American wrestler to win more than two World Championship gold medals. He was also a member of the 1980 Moscow Olympic team that was boycotted by the United States.

"On the Mat" is a weekly wrestling radio program that airs every Wednesday night. This week's broadcast can be heard live from 5-6 p.m. Central Standard Time. The Dan Gable International Wrestling Institute and Museum in Waterloo, Iowa, hosts the show.

"On the Mat" can be heard live on the Internet at www.kcnzam.com or locally in Northeast Iowa on 1650, The Fan. Feel free to e-mail radio@wrestlingmuseum.org with questions or comments about the show.
