Adam Rutt

Adam became the newest member of the KELOLAND Live Doppler HD weather team, joining them in March of 2020. 

Born and raised in the Poconos of eastern Pennsylvania, Adam’s fascination and earliest memories of weather revolved around one common theme: Winter. His most notable weather memory was the Blizzard of 1996, which put well over two and a half feet of snow on the ground and closed school for a full week. After getting the chance to shadow a local meteorologist during high school, he knew what he wanted his future career to be.

With few in-state options, Adam went north for his college education. He graduated from Lyndon State College in Lyndonville, Vermont with a Bachelor’s Degree in Meteorology with a concentration in TV Broadcasting in 2010. As an added bonus, he also met his wife at Lyndon! 

His career began in Atlantic City, New Jersey at WMGM-TV in 2011. During his time on the Jersey Shore, he forecasted for and covered Tropical Storm Irene and Hurricane Sandy in back-to-back years. Following the closure of WMGM, Adam traveled west…slightly…to Maryland. He joined the team at WDVM-TV in Hagerstown, Maryland in 2015, where he spent the next five years of his career forecasting for the 4 State region.

When he isn’t forecasting the weather, Adam can usually be found on any one of the many walking trails in Sioux Falls with his wife and son. If you hear the band RUSH or Relient K in the background, he probably isn’t too far behind.
