Seth Klamann's Profile
Seth Klamann. 913-221-1090. @SethKlamann. MuchAdoAboutNuggets.Wordpress.com. SethKlamann@gmail.com
WHAT DO YOU DO AT THE MISSOURIAN? I'm a reporter on the Public Safety & Health beat, covering a number of things within that broad parameter across Columbia and Boone County.
WHAT KIND OF JOURNALISM KEEPS YOU GOING? There are a lot of different kinds of journalism that interest me. Reporting on the Public Safety and Health beat is really important to me because it involves dealing with people directly on issues and circumstances that are very important to them, even if they don't know it. I'm also a huge soccer fan, so any kind of writing or work about soccer immediately peaks my interest. More than anything, I love journalism that really tells stories. About people, events places.
WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND? I was born and raised in the greatest city on Earth, Kansas City (MISSOURI!). I went to the all-boys high school in KC and wrote for the newspaper there. I'm the favorite and fifth of six kids. I'm at the University of Missouri seeking a degree in Print and Digital News within the journalism school.
WHAT'S YOUR LIFE OUTSIDE OF WORK LIKE? When I'm not bent over a typewriter in the newsroom, I like to sleep, write about soccer, watch soccer, sleep, play video games and watch tons of movies.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT COLUMBIA? I love that Columbia is so diverse. If you go downtown, you'll see sort of an indie scene. There are coffee shops with weird names right across the street from other coffee shops with weird names. If you go in any direction, you'll see neighborhoods that exist outside of the University, which can be hard to fathom when you exist in the Mizzou bubble. You can also find little 'rural' pockets in CoMo. Little pieces of everything, really.
