Sean Clasby joined the NBC Nebraska News 2 team in June 2016 as a Reporter and now anchors NBC Nebraska TODAY.

A Massachusetts native, Sean Clasby graduated from Quinnipiac University with his Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism. As a member of student media, Sean reported on everything from local high school football to the daily struggles of a no-kill animal shelter. In 2014, he helped Q30, Quinnipiac’s television station, win the Pinnacle Award for best student-run television station in America. Also, he and his fellow journalism students teamed up with WTNH-TV, the ABC affiliate in New Haven, Connecticut, to win an Edward R. Murrow Award for their project about Global Warming and the state’s rising sea levels.

Outside of Quinnipiac, Sean gained valuable firsthand experience as intern at WTNH-TV and WCVB-TV, Boston’s news leader. At WTNH, Sean worked closely with the sports anchors and reporters to cover some of Connecticut’s best high school football teams. He was responsible for field producing some of the games. At WCVB, he worked tirelessly with Phil Lipof, an Emmy award-winning reporter, to improve his writing and technique. Sean considers Phil to be his greatest teacher and mentor.

Outside of work you can find Sean lifting weights, playing golf or rooting on his favorite sports teams (the Boston Red Sox, Celtics and Alabama Crimson Tide). Sean is excited to be living and reporting in Nebraska, but understands that he’s now entered Big Ten country. Don’t be a stranger. Please feel free to reach out and share your story or say just say hi.
