Biography


Seth Conley's love for media started at an early age when he got his first job reading news and weather at a local radio station at the age of 16 near his home in Indiana. Throughout his career, Seth has worked on both sides of the camera and in a variety of roles: shooting video, editing, producing, directing, anchoring and reporting, and now teaching.

Conley started his career in television at a class A station owned by Indiana Wesleyan University. There he shot, directed, produced, and edited local programming including promotional videos, local news magazine shows, multi-camera sports, and musical performances. He also worked as a television news anchor and reporter for WLFI News Channel 18 (CBS) in West Lafayette, Ind., and then as a part time anchor at WNDU (NBC) in South Bend, Ind., while teaching television and film full-time.
