Seth Voorhees has over three decades of journalistic experience under his belt. After seven years in local radio, Seth’s TV reporting career began in 1995 in the Spectrum News 1 Rochester newsroom. After 22 years, Seth moved west to report for NBC in Dallas. Just two years later, Seth returned to the Spectrum News team and is thrilled to be back in the place he has called home for over thirty years.
A decorated reporter and photojournalist, Seth is the proud recipient of several awards. With fifteen New York Emmy awards and fourteen Regional Edward R. Murrow awards, it’s safe to say that Seth is an expert in his field. In 2023, Seth was honored by the RTDNA with a prestigious National Edward R. Murrow Award for Sports Reporting.
For Seth, each story he covers is just as meaningful as the next. He loves having the ability to cover an important issue one day, and a heart-warming feature the next. Aside from reporting and writing, Seth shoots and edits nearly all his own stories.
When Seth isn’t in the newsroom, you can find him golfing, bowling, and catching up on the local Rochester food scene with his family, or relaxing while cheering on the Yankees, Red Wings, and Amerks.
