Adam presents Sky News Tonight, weekdays from 7pm – 9pm, alongside Sarah Hewson. Adam has been at Sky News since the beginning. A pioneer of the innovative use of live analysis and pictures, it’s believed that he has spent more hours on television covering breaking stories than any other British television reporter.

Adam has reported live from every continent except Antarctica, presenting specials from around the world. Adam hosted Sky News’ historic televised debate between the three party leaders ahead of the 2010 General Election. He also spent the first 100 days of Barack Obama’s Presidency reporting from the US and gained a UK exclusive broadcast interview during the President’s historic visit to Ghana. As Sky News' Political Editor, Adam also interviewed every British Prime Minister from David Cameron back to Sir Alec Douglas-Home, and international stars ranging from Jane Fonda and Jordan to Al Gore and Lech Walesa. His questioning of George W. Bush featured in the film “Taking Liberties”.


Adam is a winner of the Royal Television Society’s supreme Judges’ Award and was elected 2007 Chairman of the Parliamentary Lobby. His former Sunday programme was voted “Current Affairs Show Of The Year.” Clive James described The Boulton Factor as “the best entertainment for grown-ups.”
