His television career started behind the scenes as a photographer in Columbia, Missouri. From there TV took him on adventures on the Gulf Coast and in the Pacific Northwest. From Mobile, Alabama to Portland, Oregon Casey teamed up with reporters to cover stories ranging from Hurricane Katrina to the re-eruption of Mount St. Helen's.

As the first television Multimedia Journalist to cover news in St. Louis Casey often works alone – shooting and editing his own stories for live reports on NewsChannel 5 at 10pm.

KSDK sent Casey to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake and to London for the 2012 Summer Olympics and Sochi for the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Casey's work has earned him a Mid-America EMMY and the Illinois Associated Press named him the "Best Reporter" for the Chicago and St. Louis television markets.
