Tuesday Morning Man: Seth Doane! I’ve been watching CBS This Morning now and enjoy its more thoughtful pace so much that I don’t think I can ever go back to The Today Show or Good Morning America.

Plus, they have really cute correspondents! One of them is today’s Morning Man: Seth Doane!

He is 31 and been a national correspondent for CBS News since 2007. Seth grew up on Cape Cod in Massachusetts and his father was a State Senator. He graduated from USC in 2000 and quickly landed a job as a field producer at WNYW in New York. While there, he was nominated for an Emmy  after going undercover to expose the lack of security at schools throughout Manhattan.

Soon after, he was hired by Channel One News as an anchor and covered stories all around the world winning a Peabody Award in 2004 for a series he did on Sudan. In 2006, he was hired by CNN.

10 Remarks

  1. I’ve been watching ‘CBS This Morning’ also and am in complete agreement with you. But people are creatures of habit and I don’t think they’ll give this show a chance. I believe that ‘Good Morning America’ will win in the ratings. Seth Doane – a nice guy to wake up with.

  2. When Seth was a teenager I predicted that he would one day have Peter Jenning’s job! Not far from the same path! Everyone at Harwich Junior Theatre is thrilled with Seth’s success but we are not one bit surprised! Kudos Seth!

  3. More than just looking good .. this kid is SMART and he takes his time getting to the bottom of the story … and often follows up on previous news flashes so one gets the whole story …

  4. I’ve seen several of the pieces that Seth has been in on, and what I have found is that they come across as honest. There isn’t insofar as I have noticed that prejudice or bias that many news correspondents seem to suggest by their facial expressions, body language or actual editorial comment.

  5. He is very handsome of a newscaster. Some of the cute newscasters are slowly coming on TV. :)

  6. I also watch the new CBS Morning Show and love its pace and thoughtful treatment of all stories and interviewees. The three anchors are different from each other, pleasant but not cheerleader types or faux serious, as on Today and Good Morning America. And, we don’t have to see obese Americans saying hello to grandma, happy weathermen, Dancing With the Stars losers, or cooking demonstrations (not that there’s anything wrong with any of that; it is just tiresome). Cheers to CBS on its latest morning venture.

  7. I also enjoy this show, even more so now with Norah O’Donnell. During a commercial break this morning I switched for a minute to Good Morning America. While Charlie Rose had just been thoughtfully talking to the CEO of Barnes & Noble about the future of books and reading, poor George Stephanopoulos was interviewing one of the stars of ABC’s ‘Modern Family’ and the ousted partner of Pamela Anderson who was apparently thrown off ABC’s ‘Dancing with the [Faux] Stars’ last night. Pitiful.

    I enjoy watching Seth doing his newscast. Saw him one time at the 4 P’s Pub on Capital Hill in DC, with all the hot girls around him, and drinking something called Rick Schlauch Beer.

    Just a note to see if maybe Seth Doane could be a relative. My mothers
    family are decendents of Deacon John Doane who came to America in 1629 and settled in Plymouth Mass. I have lots of documentation of the family and the ancestry. When I first saw Seth Doane on the CBS News,I said he might be a distant cousin.If you get this message my email is if you are interested in communicating.
