Jamie Seh, Emcee

Meet Jamie Seh

Jamie Seh is the Sports Director at WKMG News 6. She’s made her home and reported on sports in Central Florida since 2010 and absolutely loves her job of telling the stories of inspirational athletes. If she’s not anchoring sports on Channel 6, she’s usually at an Orlando Magic practice, a UCF, Florida, or Florida State football game, an Orlando City soccer match, or the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

A sports nut since she was a kid, she knew she wanted to be a sportscaster at the age of 16 and has been lucky enough to work at her dream job for 20 years, with stops in Syracuse, NY and her hometown of Albany, NY.

“She also has freelanced as a television play-by-play announcer, calling the action of a variety of sports, including college basketball, lacrosse and soccer.“

Jamie graduated from Syracuse University and is a diehard fan of the Buffalo Bills.

In her free time, Jamie enjoys being outside — jogging, hiking, skiing, boating, basically doing anything active! She also likes to read, travel, and, most of all, watch sports.
