Jeff Glor is an Emmy-award winning correspondent who joined CBS News in 2007. Since then, Glor has traveled extensively to cover stories around the world. His reporting for "CBS This Morning" has taken him around the world, and he has filed reports from Greenland, Newfoundland, and Alaska. His travels for "60 Minutes Sports" included stops in Africa and Ireland. 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.

Previously at CBS News, Glor covered some of the biggest breaking news stories of the last decade, including the shootings at Sandy Hook, the Boston Marathon bombings, and the landfall of Superstorm Sandy. He won an Emmy in 2011 for a CBS Sunday Morning story on an aging steel town in Pennsylvania.

Glor was one of the first journalists on the ground in Haiti following that country's devastating earthquake in 2010. He reported from Iraq, where he was embedded with the U.S. military. Glor 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 Early Show" during the 2008 presidential election.

He anchored both the Saturday (2009-10) and Sunday (2012-2016) editions of the "CBS Evening News" and also served as news anchor on "The Early Show" in 2011.

Before joining CBS News, 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 PM newscast and a reporter for the 11 PM 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, N.Y. He also reported live from Toronto when the Pope visited there in 2002.

Glor began his journalism career in 1997 as the station's news writer, while attending college. While in Central N.Y., 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 he served as a contributing researcher and writer on "The Legal Handbook for N.Y. State Journalists."

Born in Tonawanda, N.Y., Glor graduated magna cum laude from Syracuse University in 1997 with a degree in journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and a degree in economics from the College of Arts and Sciences. He and his wife, Nicole, along with their two children, Jack and Victoria, live in Connecticut.
