Condolences to family and friends of longtime CBS NEWS anchor/correspondent CHRISTOPHER GLENN, who died suddenly in a NORWALK, CT hospital TUESDAY (10/17) at 68. GLENN, who retired from the network in FEBRUARY, had been suffering from liver cancer.
GLENN was the anchor of CBS RADIO NEWS' "WORLD NEWS ROUND-UP" from 1999 through FEBRUARY 2006 and previously anchored the network's "THE WORLD TONIGHT." He was also known to countless Americans as the voice of the iconic "IN THE NEWS," a feature aired as an interstitial element of CBS TV's SATURDAY morning childrens' programming in 1971-1986, and as an anchor for CBS's "30 MINUTES" and "WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?" news magazine shows for children.
Before his CBS stint, GLENN worked at WNEW-A/NEW YORK; WICC-A/BRIDGEPORT, CT; and the METROMEDIA RADIO NEWS NETWORK.
