Adam Seibel is from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He made his first appearance on the news at a young age when a local station got some b-roll of him, and his recently decimated home destroyed by a tornado. Adam got his start in journalism through his school’s yearbook club and later attended the University of Oklahoma in Norman where he studied broadcast journalism. 

When not on the job Adam enjoys anything outdoors, from fishing to riding his longboard. He also enjoys live music performances and is an avid Sooner football fan (he said he’ll be sure to leave the OU shirts at home if he visits Austin). Adam joined 25 News Now as a multi-skilled journalist in June 2021. If you see him around town feel free to say hi and get to know him!
