Early life and education[edit]

He graduated magna cum laude from Syracuse University in 1997 with dual degrees in journalism (from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications), and in economics. At Syracuse, he was awarded the Henry J. Wolff prize, given to the Newhouse student "most proficient in journalism".[2]

Life and career[edit]

Glor was co-anchor of WSTM-TV Syracuse's 5 p.m. newscast and a reporter for the 11 p.m. newscast (2000–2003). He was the morning news anchor from 1997–2000. He joined WSTM as a part-time producer while still attending college. Glor was named "Best Male News Anchor" by Syracuse New Times, and one of the 40 most promising professionals under the age of 40. Glor was a contributing researcher and writer on The Legal Handbook for N.Y. State Journalists.[2] He served as weekend evening news anchor and a weekday reporter for WHDH-TV in Boston from 2003–2007.

He joined CBS News in 2007. Until 2009, he reported primarily for The Early Show, including an extended period in Iraq, China, and on the presidential campaign in 2008. In 2009, he started anchoring the Saturday edition of the CBS Evening News and began to report for other broadcasts, including the CBS Evening News and CBS Sunday Morning, for which he won an Emmy. He served as the newsreader for The Early Show in 2011.

In 2012, he began anchoring the Sunday edition of the CBS Evening News and focused reporting on long-form stories for the newly launched CBS This Morning. From 2013 to 2014, he was the correspondent on extended investigations for the CBS Evening News, including recalls at General Motors and Takata. In 2015 and 2016, he contributed a wide range of stories to 60 Minutes Sports. He also began filling in for Charlie Rose on his eponymous show on PBS.
