Adam Shear joined FOX28 in November of 2012 as a multi-media journalist, but recently was promoted to weekend sports anchor/reporter.
The Indianapolis native came to Michiana after spending a hot summer down in Waco, TX where he worked as a news reporter for News Channel 25. He knew when his thermostat was hitting 110 degrees on a regular basis, it was time for him to move back home to Indiana.
Adam graduated from Indiana University-Bloomington in August of 2011 with a bachelor's degree in sports broadcast. As a student Adam worked for IUSportcom.com as a reporter where he covered Big Ten athletics and NBA Basketball. Adam also co-hosted a weekly sports talk video series with some fellow students.
Adam's interest in working in television started in 2003 when his dad took him to the MLB All-Star game in Chicago. While there, Adam's father talked him into doing a mock sport broadcast where he got to sit behind the actual MLB on FOX desk and read from a teleprompter. Within seconds he knew he wanted to work in sports broadcast, but little did he know he'd actually become a sports anchor at a FOX station.
When Adam is not shooting highlights on the sidelines at your favorite high school or working in the newsroom, he is most likely checking out a new restaurant. Although he would not consider himself a "foodie" he does like to venture out and try foods that would make some cringe like iguana and turtle.
While he's a few hours away from his hometown, Adam knew quite a bit about Michiana before starting at FOX28. His grandparents, aunt, and uncle all call Warsaw home, and when Adam was growing up he used to watch his cousin play for the Tigers.
