MANAGING EDITOR: Wade Keller – @thewadekeller | kellerwade@gmail.com

StaffKeller08_120PWTorch editor Wade Keller launched Pro Wrestling Torch Newsletter in 1987 at the infancy of legitimate full time journalistic coverage of pro wrestling. His series of “Torch Talk” interviews, published in the PWTorch Newsletter, started in the late 1980s, were a ground-breaking in that it was the first time wrestlers talked in long-form Q&A formats on an ongoing basis about the inner-workings of professional wrestling. He launched PWTorch.com in 1999 and split off MMA coverage in 2005 with the launch of MMATorch.com.

He was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, received the “Jim Melby Award for Excellence in Writing on Pro Wrestling” Award in 2015, and is featured in the Dan Gable Museum in Waterloo, Iowa.

He hosted the KFAN Pro Wrestling Focus radio show from 1991 to 1993, which are available to listen to in MP3 format from the PWTorch VIP website (www.pwtorchvip.com, subscription required). He hosted the Ultimate Insiders DVD series in the mid-2000s.

He has been a regular contributor as a guest analyst on the Steve Austin Show podcast among others including The Ross Report and the Sam Roberts Show. He has been interviewed and quoted as a wrestling expert by dozens of media entities over the last three decades including major newspapers and national radio shows, such as NPR and WFAN. You can hear him as host of the PWTorch Livecast every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and also as a VIP member you can hear his daily Wade Keller Hotline and his cohosting of various VIP-exclusive audio shows. He continues to publish the 12 page mail-order PWTorch Newsletter every week, approaching issue no. 1,500 in 2017. He is also editor of www.MMATorch.com.
