A distinguished chapter in the history of CBS News comes to an end next month when Glenn retires after 35 years with the network. Glenn has been a fixture at CBS News since 1971, when he started there as a radio producer for special events. His radio work has won him many national awards, the latest being the Radio Television News Directors 2005 Edward R. Murrow award for Best Newscaster.
With his unique, instantly recognizable voice, most people still remember Glenn as the reporter and narrator of more than 5,000 episodes of "In the News," the Emmy-award-winning television series of current-events broadcasts for young viewers that aired between 1971-1984.
Before joining CBS, Glenn was managing editor of Metromedia News Network in Washington, DC, and a reporter, editor and documentary producer with WNEW/New York. His radio resume also includes stints at WICC/Bridgeport, CT; Radio Press International/New York; and Armed Forces Radio.
