WDBJ7 Anchor/Reporter Seth Kovar

Seth Kovar is the co-anchor and executive producer for News 7 Mornin'. He moved to Virginia for exciting new opportunities in November of 2011. It's his first time living outside of his native Texas.

Seth grew up in the Dallas suburb of Plano. The lifelong Longhorn fan fulfilled his dream of graduating from the University of Texas at Austin in May of 2003. From there it was up to tiny Sherman, Texas, for a reporter/photographer job at KXII.

After a year-and-a-half of learning the ins and outs of the news business, Seth took a job at KXXV in Waco, Texas. There he spent the next six years mostly as the morning and midday anchor.

Then in late 2011 when News 7 Mornin' expanded to a two anchor show, Seth was the man for the job. He says working with Kimberly, Leo, Melissa, and the talented producers and crew is an incredible experience.

Seth is an avid Texas Longhorn and Texas Ranger fan. And, yes 'Skins fans, he's a Cowboys fan as well. Watching and playing sports is what he enjoys the most in his spare time. He's also dabbling with cooking but is certainly no chef.

Last but not least Seth is enjoying meeting new friends in his new city and getting to visit old friends at home from time to time. And of course keeping in touch with his wonderful family is a top priority.
