Adam Herbets

 

Adam joined the FOX5 team as a reporter in the summer of 2016. He focuses on tough stories like crime and corruption in Clark County, and he can be seen weekdays on FOX5 News at 4p, 5p, 6p, 10p and 11p.

Adam has won an Edward R. Murrow Award for investigative journalism and an Emmy® Award for investigative journalism. He has also won two Golden Mike Awards® and has been nominated for eleven Emmy Awards in total. Since moving to Las Vegas, he has been recognized for his investigations into the 1 October tragedy, the NV OSHA system, and officers within the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

He says he appreciates the recognition, but for every trophy and award there is an important story with an innocent victim behind it.

One of his biggest stories led directly to the arrest and conviction of a “doctor” who was practicing without a medical license for years and dumping vials of blood in his backyard. Another story allowed him to advocate for a veteran who was not receiving the benefits he deserved from the VA. After the veteran spent years battling the system, Adam’s reporting helped him get tens of thousands of dollars owed to him by the government.

Adam was raised in Orange County, California and graduated from Chapman University with a degree in television and broadcast journalism. He worked in the hot deserts of Bakersfield and Palm Springs before moving to Las Vegas.

When he’s not out telling stories in the field, Adam is trying new restaurants or simply enjoying the outdoors. He is a proud Eagle Scout, as well as a long-suffering Philadelphia Eagles fan.

He says he’s proud to be able to live and work in a city full of resilient people, and he has been honored to share the stories of those who define our tight-knit community.
