Madison Adams is an award-winning journalist who currently anchors the noon newscast and is the lead night-side reporter at KWTX News Ten in Waco, Texas. In addition to her day to day responsibilities in the newsroom, Madison is the lead reporter for the Emmy Award-winning “KWTX Baylor Gameday” show which airs before each Baylor University home football game and live on KWTX and Fox Sports.
Before starting her career, Madison competed twice in Miss Texas where she was first runner-up in 2015 as Miss Park Cities and second runner-up in 2014 as Miss Waco.
Madison’s Miss Texas journey has allowed her to share her passion for health and fitness through her platform, "Play Every Day,” which focuses on promoting healthy lifestyles through a partnership with the YMCA.
She was chosen as the 2015 Young Woman of Achievement and was recognized with numerous interview awards, a preliminary lifestyle and fitness award, and community service awards for her involvement with over 40 non-profits and was even given awards for her talent…yodeling!
Madison was born and raised in Fort Worth and spent several years barrel racing in rodeos across the south on her horse, Barbie. You will likely find her out and about in Central Texas looking for any opportunity to wear her cowboy boots. She graduated from Baylor University with a double major in entrepreneurship and journalism.
While Madison is proud of her achievements so far in life, she is more grateful to have learned to have an “others-focused” outlook on life, which is what guides her to report on the stories that have significance to the community she serves.
