Jeff Glor, CBS News Correspondent

Nov 30, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Background: Mr. Glor double majored in journalism and economics and won a best-in-journalism award at Syracuse University in New York.

TV News Talent

Before graduating, he had become a news writer at Syracuse’s WSTM-TV in 1997. Over the next six years, he would report from New York on 9/11 and from Toronto on a papal visit in 2002. His extracurricular activities included serving as a contributing researcher and writer on “The Legal Handbook for New York State Journalists.” He was hired in 2003 by WHDH-TV as weekend anchor and weekday reporter, the latter role bringing him to such high-profile assignments as the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens; Pope John Paul II’s death in Rome; and congressional hearings on steroid use in Major League Baseball. Since becoming a New York-based national correspondent in early 2007, he has embedded with U.S. soldiers in Iraq and reported on Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to Washington and New York City as well as the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis. He has been the lead political contributor to “The Early Show,” on which he also is a frequent substitute anchor.

Buzz: Those who know Mr. Glor know he’s a very nice, very smart, very good writer and reporter with a long, unlimited career ahead of him.

  1. HE ROCKS!!!!!!!

  2. Good to se the buzz on Jeff Glor. He certainly has the look, sound and intelligence needed to be a major network anchor. I’d predict sooner rather than later….probably before he’s 40.

  3. Jeff Glor is all well and good, but I am a fan of Michele Greppi, who was my boss years ago at the Orlando Sentinel. Hi, Michele.

  4. He did a fantastic job over the holidays on the Early Weekend Show and the CBS evening news. Very impressive guy.

  5. He looks good and he talks good–ok talks well. But on his first assignment as anchor of the CBS Weekend Evening News was it really necessary for the network to make him freeze his ass off? I like my anchors to appear comfortable, no matter how bad the news. Anchors=indoors and stationary; everyone else=remotes=whatever the news will bear.

  6. Very impressive news delivery with a warm and friendly touch. I went to Syracuse, too, and am glad to see a fellow Orangeman go all the way. If it was still open I’d buy Jeff a beer in the Orange bar on the SU campus.

  7. Jeff was the only reason I would tune into channel 5 (I’m a #3 girl). I’m glad he made it to the big leagues before the merger of 3&5, but if not, I’m sure I’d still be able to enjoy watching Jeff on 3!

  8. i so love him… does he have a blog or fansite? :)

  9. Hi,
    As long as i wahthed Mr.Glor show up on CBS NEWS, I have been wondering his marrigae history. Is he single or has not married yet? Has he had a friend, who might be a homesexsual.
    Just wondering, it would be great if could get answer from you. Thanks a lot!!!!

  10. I have been watching Jeff Glor for sometime as he fills in on the weekend news.In the past I have discovered many that are now famous. I’m to old at the present to continue in the rat race, but mark my words Jeff is a natural. Easy going relaxed. Watch him go to the top soon. TV needs people like him. I know nothing about his personal life, but from what I see on TV, he has it all wrapped up just waiting to explode. I’m sick and tired of all these pretty talking heads that know nothing that they are talking about. Jeff has a very sincere approach.

  11. just watching jeff on katie couric about the dogs coming home from war…when you say”if I WERE” or “if it WEREn’t” or when you use “I wish” you always use “WERE” or “WEREn’t.” Jeff said if it “WASN’T” for the dog…”WASN’T” is incorrect grammar. I am a retired teacher just passing on some advice…love his segments!

  12. Great post!

  13. Great post!

  14. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
