Adam Tuss is joining WRC as a transportation reporter at the beginning of October.

Tuss joins the NBC O&O in Washington, DC from WTOP radio, where he has spent the last eight years reporting on transportation issues in the region.

In a statement announcing the hire, WRC general manager Jackie Bradford said Tuss “has distinguished himself in Washington as an enterprising reporter who breaks stories in one of the most important beats in our region.”

“Everyone cares about transportation in this area, and there are so many stories to tell,” Tuss said.  “I am thrilled to pursue this exciting new opportunity with such a respected organization.”
