Adam received a BA in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. While attending Whitewater, he served as the Sports Director and primary announcer for all UW-W athletics including their national champion football and baseball programs. After graduating as the voice of the Warhawks, Adam has moved on to announcing for a minor league hockey team, the Chicago Express. He has always loved baseball though, and still plays to this day. While you may not see the 6'2 lefty pitching on your TV any time soon, you may see his name at the top of some riveting Chicago Cubs news...and let's be honest, some pretty ridiculous news too (we're looking at YOU Zambrano). He does not believe in the "wait till next year" mantra, he lives it...and that's dedication, holmes.
