A former co-host of the daily All Things Considered program, he is currently the senior correspondent at the network's National Desk. As a bestselling author, Adams' books tend to document a full year in his life, specifically as that year relates to a particular passion or research project. Adams has also dabbled in major documentary projects, such as Father Cares: The Last of Jonestown in 1981. The program, which he wrote and narrated, earned him the Prix Italia, the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award, and the Major Armstrong Award.
