Jeff Glor Biography – Jeff Glor Wiki
Jeff Glor born Jeffrey Todd Glor, is an American journalist.
Glor began his journalism career in 1997 as one of the station’s news writers, while attending college. During his time in Central New York, he was named “Best Male News Anchor” by the Syracuse New Times, one of the 40 most promising professionals under the age of 40, and served as a contributing researcher and writer on “The Legal Handbook for N.Y. State Journalists.”
Jeff Glor was the weekend evening news anchor and a weekday reporter for WHDH-TV Boston (2003-2007). While there, he covered many national stories, including the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, the death of Pope John Paul II in 2005 from Rome, and the hearings on steroid use in Major League Baseball from Washington, D.C. Prior to that, Glor was the co-anchor of WSTM-TV Syracuse’s 5 p.m. newscast and a reporter for the 11 p.m. newscast (2000-2003), as well as the morning news anchor (1997-2000). Among the national stories he covered while at WSTM were the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001; the first anniversary of the 9/11 attacks; and the crash of Flight 587 in Queens, New York. He also reported live from Toronto when the Pope John Paul II visited in 2002.
Glor joined CBS News in 2007 as a correspondent and traveled for more than a decade, reporting from the shootings in Newtown, Conn, the Boston Marathon bombings, and the landfall of Superstorm Sandy, among many others.
As a correspondent for “CBS This Morning” and “60 Minutes Sports,” Glor filed reports from Alaska, Africa, Greenland, Ireland, and Newfoundland. For the “CBS Evening News,” Glor’s ongoing series of reports on the recall crisis at General Motors and Takata sent him across the U.S. to find survivors, stories, and information that were kept hidden from the public for years.
He was one of the first journalists on the ground in Haiti following that country’s devastating earthquake in 2010. Glor reported from Iraq in 2007 and 2008, where he spent time embedded with U.S. troops. He also covered the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games in China and the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. In 2008, Glor was a lead member of the CBS News team that covered Pope Benedict XVI’s historic visits to Washington, D.C. and New York City. He was also the primary campaign correspondent for the network’s morning show during the 2008 presidential election.
In addition to his reporting assignments, Glor was a lead anchor on CBSN, CBS News’ 24/7 streaming news service, during its critical launch period. As CBSN continues to grow, Glor maintains a presence on the digital streaming channel.
