UK grad to participate in “American Ninja Warrior” tonight on NBC


Matt Schumann is a UK graduate, Cats fan, and current EKU grad student, and tonight he will be participating in the sixth season premiere of “American Ninja Warrior” on NBC. The show, which features people doing athletic things I could never imagine doing, gets started at 8:00 p.m. ET with a countdown show, followed by the the season premiere at 9:00 p.m. ET.

Schumann submitted his entry video back in January and he told LEX 18 he believes the show producers liked him because he also sings bluegrass music. “They really liked having a Bluegrass player on their show. They really don’t get many of those,” he said.

Watch his submission below:

Good luck to Matt and Go Cats.

    My region that I competed in was in St. Louis. It should be on NBC June 9th. Thank you all for the support! Go Cats!
