Glenn Campbell has been in the industry for over 30 years and has spent the last 28 years here in Calgary, covering sports in the city he was born and raised.
For the first six years of his career, Glenn worked in smaller centers, learning the craft and gaining as much knowledge as he could. Glenn worked in Medicine Hat, Swift Current, Yorkton and Regina. But he always had the goal of getting back to Calgary when he was 27 and his dream came true at that exact age.
Calgary-based Glenn learned how important local sports are in this community from his previous bosses Ken Newans and Russ Peake. Getting the perfect blend of our professional teams and amateur stories make for a solid sportscast.
"I feel very fortunate to work in the city I was born and raised in and to be able to do a job I love. Through the years, I’ve been able to cover a lot of great things."
Glenn is married to Terri and they have three beautiful daughters, Kate, Maddy and Amy. Glenn’s hobby and passion is golf but he also loves all sports.
Glenn speaks English.
