Adams is one of metro-Detroit most recognizable faces. While most remember her as a skilled meteorologist at WXYZ (ABC-Detroit) and WDIV (NBC-Detroit), she now joins 98.7 The Breeze as their midday host from 10am-3pm.
After surviving breast cancer, Kim started a podcast and Facebook page called Live Fearless with Kim Adams. Kim is also the owner and CEO of Kim Adams Productions LLC.
Outside the station, Kim prides herself on her community involvement. Kim is actively involved in raising awareness for women’s health issues and an active supporter of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Kim also volunteers with The Miracle League, A New Day Foundation and Turning Point Domestic Violence Shelter. But her most rewarding job is being a single mom to five beautiful children--and two dogs!
