Seth Doane (born June 26, 1978) is an American television journalist, currently working for CBS News.

Doane, the son of former Massachusetts Republican State Senator Paul Doane, was born and raised in Harwich, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod. He graduated from Harwich High School in 1996 and then went on to the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication in 2000, and was hired by WNYW, New York City's Fox affiliate, as a field producer. Channel One News, the high school TV network, then made him a news anchor, sending him abroad to cover stories in San Salvador, Indonesia, Afghanistan, and the Sudan. At age twenty-two, Doane was nominated for an Emmy Award at WNYW for his "School Security" segment, in which he went undercover to expose the lack of security at schools throughout Manhattan.

Doane won a Peabody Award in 2004 for his series on the Sudan. In April 2006 CNN hired Doane as a special video news correspondent for South Asia, including India. He remained with CNN, based in New Delhi, until June 2007.

In August 2007, Doane became a national correspondent for CBS News, covering a wide range of domestic issues. In 2008 he began reporting on the effects of the economic recession in a series of stories about individual people and families called, "The Other America" — a phrase that harkens back to the noted book of that name by Michael Harrington, about American poverty in the 1960s. Doane is also a frequent correspondent for CBS News Sunday Morning.

From April 2013[1] until March 2016, Doane was based in Beijing, China, covering events in Asia for CBS News. Since April 2016, he has been based in Rome and covering Europe, Africa, and the Middle East for CBS News.[2] On September 6, 2014, Doane married Andrea Pastorelli[3] in a same-sex civil ceremony in Arezzo, Italy at the Villa Rosa Badia Di Campoleone.[4]
