Broadcast journalist Seamus O'Regan is seeking the federal Liberal nomination in the Newfoundland riding of St. John's South-Mount Pearl.

O'Regan, originally from St. John's, hosted CTV's Canada AM for nearly 10 years and later was a national correspondent for the network.

Prior to his career in journalism, O'Regan was a senior policy adviser to then-premier Brian Tobin.

The 43-year-old O'Regan is executive vice-president for communications at the Stronach Group, a racetrack operator, and a media innovator in residence at Ryerson University.

The riding is currently held by NDP MP Ryan Cleary.
