About Adam Carpenter
Adam Carpenter came to the Upper Peninsula in the fall of 1989 to attend Northern Michigan University. As an avid outdoorsman, Marquette, MI quickly found a special place in his heart. Surrounded by a plethora of public lands and waters, Adam enjoyed tremendous success pursuing his hunting, fishing and skiing enthusiasms.Upon completion of his bachelor’s degree in Public Relations, Adam moved downstate to pursue his career but in 1999, he moved with his family to Marquette and has been there ever since raising three daughters and entrenching himself into the community.
Adam has appeared on many televised outdoor programs including multiple episodes of Buck Lavasseur’s Discovering. He also has participated as an instructor on numerous occasions in the “Becoming An Outdoor Woman” (BOW) program sponsored by the Michigan Dept. of Natural Resources.
Adam still resides in Marquette, MI and enjoys a myriad of outdoor recreational activities, especially fly-fishing and waterfowl hunting.
Adam is also a founding member and lead singer for the successful bluegrass band Chasin’ Steel. The band formed in 2002 and the name is a slang term for steelhead fishing. Chasin’ Steel has toured the U.S. and the Carribean enjoying success bringing their unique flavor of U.P. bluegrass to fans outside the Midwest. Chasin’ Steel has opened for many Nashville based acts including, Dierks Bentley, Trace Adkins, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Emerson Drive, Shenandoah, Jamey Johnson, Confederate Railroad and others…
This experience has afforded Adam a unique perspective into the Country Music industry and he leverages this perspective into his broadcast.
Chasin’ Steel still performs regularly at fairs, festivals and performance theater venues.
