Adam Solomon joined the Alabama News Network as Sports Director in early January of 2017. The first week on the job, Adam was sent to Tampa, Florida, to cover the University of Alabama football team going for its 17th National Championship.

Before that, Adam spent the previous three years working for WCJB in Gainesville, Florida. There he covered the Florida Gators and Florida State Seminoles on a regular basis. “I”m excited to now be all-SEC all the time.”

Adam is originally from Ohio where he went to school at Bowling Green State University. He then started at WNWO in Toledo, where he was the “number 3” sports guy. A year and-a-half later, an opportunity to be on TV in front of his friends and family from back home presented itself and Adam accepted without hesitation. He would become the weekend sports anchor at WLIO in Lima, Ohio, which is just 35 minutes from his hometown of St. Marys.

Adam’s resume includes Final Fours, National Championship games, High School State Championship games as well as Professional Sports. He has covered just about every sport at the every level over the years.
In his time off, Adam will usually be at the dog park with his two dogs, traveling home to see his nephews or at the local movie theater.
