Ross Adams has been a Reporter at WJTV since 2008. Before coming to WJTV, he was a reporter/anchor at WCBI in Columbus, MS, his hometown. He also worked as a reporter in the Washington, DC area for the local news station, Cable News 21. Before heading to the nation's capital, Ross worked as a photographer/reporter at WLOX in Biloxi, MS and as a producer at WXVT-TV in Greenville, MS.
Being a journalist is a dream come true for Ross, ever since he was a kid watching his idol Dan Rather anchor the "CBS Evening News." Ross has received an Associated Press First Place Award for reporting and is a member of both the Jackson Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Black Journalists.
Among some of the most memorable stories Ross has covered since coming to WJTV are the Governor Haley Barbour pardon scandal, the federal trial of former Jackson mayor Frank Melton, and the 2008 presidential campaign during which he had the opportunity to interview candidates (now President) Barack Obama, Rudolph Giuliani, and Fred Thompson.
When he's not chasing politicians around the state Capitol or following breaking news stories for WJTV, Ross spends his time at church, reading, libraries, bookstores, traveling the Natchez Trace Parkway, and learning all about Mississippi's civil rights history.
