Cassie Semyon originally joined the Spectrum News Washington, D.C. Bureau as part of the production team in November 2021.
In six months, she was promoted to on-air correspondent, reporting for Spectrum Networks across the country from the nation’s capital, with a focus on California’s congressional delegation.
Cassie was born and raised just outside of Scranton, Pennsylvania. She began honing her journalism skills at Temple University’s Klein College of Media and Communications, where she earned a degree in media studies and production with a minor in political science. She also interned with NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell and ABC’s NewsOne, where she helped cover the Manafort trial, congressional baseball shooting and other breaking political news.
Cassie then worked in local news as a reporter, producer and weekend anchor at WBOC-TV in Delmarva, covering central and southern Delaware. She also worked as a multimedia journalist in her hometown at WNEP-TV.
Cassie is a Chesapeake Associated Press Broadcasters Association winner for her continuing coverage of the first COVID vaccines given in Delaware in 2020.
When Cassie’s not on Capitol Hill, you can find her running, hiking, reading, exploring D.C. or rooting on her Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles.
