Welcome

Hello, and welcome to my website. My name is Steven Allen Adams and I’m the state government reporter for The Parkersburg News and Sentinel.

This is a one-stop shop for my statehouse reporting for Ogden Newspaper’s five daily newspapers in West Virginia.

My focus is on coverage of our statehouse; in-depth writing on topics ranging from public policy, legislation, and investigative reporting; and my weekly column, where I provide analysis on the politics behind the policies.

I have nearly a decade of experience as a journalist, starting my career at the Ogden-owned Parkersburg News and Sentinel in 2002 and also covering Tyler County government for Ogden’s Tyler Star News. My journalism career spans print, radio, television, and new media. My work has appeared across West Virginia and has been cited by dozens of national news outlets, including CNN, Reuters, The Washington Post, The Washington Examiner, the Associated Press, and more.
