Lucas Seiler leverages over a decade of experience in journalism as a news anchor, reporter, writer, producer, photographer and forecaster. He's now a Miami-based publicist at a communications firm driving multilingual public relations, marketing & social media campaigns for companies & organizations engaged in Florida & across the Americas. Lucas represents clients mostly within the legal industry.
Lucas is also a freelance journalist and independent filmmaker with a track record of identifying unique problems within minority communities and exposing corruption at the local and statewide level. He's currently working on investigative stories focusing on everything from climate change to LGBTQ awareness to prison corruption.
In 2017 Lucas's investigation into a Florida prison-murder cover-up that resulted in the firing of 9 corrections officers was cited and published in Nova Law Review, a journal that provides timely and thought-provoking commentary from judges, legal practitioners, law professors, and select students. His reporting helped make the case that Florida lacks whistleblower protection. Several of his stories were picked up for national broadcast by CNN, MSNBC, and NBC News -- including his exclusive coverage of a lightning strike that resulted in an Edward R. Murrow Award, coverage of scientists using new technology to track invasive species in the Everglades and a story that exposed police training flaws after an officer accidentally shot and killed a woman during a citizens police academy.
Lucas studied Broadcast Journalism/Television & Investigative Reporting at Columbia College Chicago and Foreign Media Relations with the school's "Covering Europe from London" program. He's written for CBS Chicago, Fox Chicago, PBS "Chicago Tonight" and has served as an on-air journalist for Intermountain West Communications Company and Waterman Broadcasting Corporation.
