Adam Klotz’s Bio
Born on January 29, 1985, Adam Klotz’s age is 33. He hails from Warsaw, Indiana. He graduated from Warsaw Community High School.
Klotz then attended Ball State University and is fluent in English, Italian, and Spanish. He was very particular about his studies. In college, Klotz had his share of fun, but he always knew what he wanted to do in his life.
While studying at Ball State University, Klotz took broadcast journalism. He completed his internship at CMT (Country Music Television) and graduated in 2008. Though he did very well with CMT (and was even assured he’d get a job), the economy had plummeted by the time he graduated, and many people at the network were getting sacked. He struggled to secure a job and grew worried as nothing seemed to pan out for him.
The Start of Adam Klotz’s Career
Klotz had always toyed with the idea of being a meteorologist and he was also keen on appearing on TV. So, when a career in entertainment journalism seemed unattainable, he went back to school to study meteorology and earned his Master’s degree. He landed his first job as a weatherman in Lima, Ohio and worked there for a year and a half.
But he did have some embarrassing moments early on in his career while in Lima! One instance in particular occurred years ago, when wireless microphones hadn’t yet been developed and the anchor was always attached to a cable. Klotz forgot.
While explaining the weather, he was nervous and kept turning in the wrong direction. While he was doing so, his microphone’s wire started to tie around him and eventually Klotz was wrapped in the wire from head to toe, live on the air with his face completely red! The anchors who were present were rolling on the floor with laughter!
After his first job, he took a break and did some traveling. When he returned, Klotz sent out job applications for TV anchor positions. He jumped at the chance to work in Panama City, Florida as a weather anchor at WJHG-TV NewsChannel 7.
Besides covering weather, Klotz has also done some reporting. He covered a big report about girls who were parasailing when the ropes snapped and they slammed into the side of a hotel. It was a major breaking news story and it aired on NBC’s Today show. Klotz had taken exclusive footage of the scene and conducted interviews, all of which got him noticed.
In 2014, he joined Fox 5 in Atlanta, Georgia as a weekend meteorologist and was working as a multimedia journalist.

Klotz is so dedicated to his work that in March 2017, he even offered coverage of winter storm Stella live from New York City!
He’s become so popular that he also makes appearances on Fox & Friends! Klotz and his mother even went on the After the Show Show to cook up a recipe with the host.
Klotz likes to keep things crazy while working. Last January, when the weather was absolutely freezing outside, he delivered weather report while working out in the streets. In fact, he even went to the extent of having an on-air push-up contest outside (sans jackets) with anchor Pete Hegseth!

But he did post a few photos last year with a girl named Bianca and used the hashtag, #NationalGirlfriendDay. It looks like Klotz likes to keep his dating life private and we can’t blame him; we’re sure after his Winter push-up segment he has no problem impressing the ladies!
