Adam still counts Cleveland, Ohio as his home, where he started in radio. He began in 2004 as a producer, host and production manager for a sports talk website that, at the time, serviced WKNR in Cleveland. He then went on to produce shows for WHK, WHKW, WKNR and others in the market. Adam got his first real on-air “gig” when the former President of the Parma City School Board, Kevin Kelley, decided he needed someone to spice up his weekly call-in talk show, and brought Adam on as co-host on WHK for about a year-and-a-half.
From there, Adam wrote and delivered news, traffic and sports for nearly every station in the Cleveland market for the now-defunct Metro Networks.
Adam currently lives with his wife in Squirrel Hill.
