Wells Adams is an on-air personality and Morning Show host of Nashville’s independent radio, Lightning 100. Aside from entertaining his listeners on their daily morning commute, Wells also co-creates, produces, programs, and hosts a weekly local show called “the615”. "The615" focuses exclusively on Nashville bands and in between playing their music, Wells gives in depth knowledge of the tracks, the band, and other juicy bits of the local music that is found in Music City. Wells is also a contributing writer for the Nashville Magazine "Native" and writes a monthly local artist spotlight called "You Oughta Know."In 2008, Wells was a finalist for the A.I.R. (Achievement In Radio) Awards in the “Best New Talent” category. In 2011, Wells served as a contributing columnist for the music publication Brite Magazine that boasted a circulation that exceeded 20,000. Aside from being extremely comfortable near a microphone, Wells frequently jumps in front of a camera for exclusive backstage interviews, Bonnaroo correspondent videos, and the occasional impromptu goofy comedy bit.Wells started in radio early. He hosted his first radio show in High School at KSPB Radio Stevenson in California. He continued his radio work throughout college at The University of Mississippi, where he graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. During his four years in college radio, Wells hosted every show from mornings to overnights while also serving as both Music and Program Director.In his free time, Wells enjoys hunting, sports, traveling, playing his guitar and listening to live music.
