It’s a big job for a local guy.

Jeff Glor was named as anchor of the “CBS Evening News,” the flagship broadcast that was led by Walter Cronkite and Dan Rather in the past but it is now a distant third in the television ratings.  Glor has reported across the globe for virtually all CBS News broadcasts in his 10 years with the network. He has anchored numerous breaking news stories, including most recently in the field for Hurricane Irma and in the studio for the Las Vegas shootings.

Glor was born in the Town of Tonawanda, NY where he attended Kenmore East High School. He graduated from Syracuse University in 1997 with dual degrees in journalism (from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications) and in economics.

Glor is a huge Buffalo Bills fan!

Best of luck to Jeff and his wife Nicole live in New York City with their two children.
