A Voice from the Past

  • Veteran CBS News correspondent Christopher Glenn, who retired earlier this year, has died, CBS News reports. He was 68.

    Glenn, who suffered from liver cancer, died suddenly in a hospital in Norwalk, Conn.

    After a 35 years as an integral part of CBS News, Glenn shut off his microphone in February.
We remember growing up, watching cartoons on Saturday mornings, and learning a bit of what was going on in the world with Mr. Glenn's "In the News" segments between shows. We also happened to be driving to work one day this past February and hearing what ended up being Mr. Glenn's last radio broadcast. It was kind of a sad event, as any memory from your past reminds you of how old you are getting. And now, we feel that much older.

I noticed Christopher Glenn's passing yesterday too. In the 70's, between episodes of Shazam and Isis, I learned about important adult things which turned me into a news and politics fan at an early age. The guy always had great pipes and a thoughtful, but never over stated way of presenting the news. He will be missed.

Christopher Glenn was a great reporter. I agree with the previous poster, he will be missed.
Kinda looked like Stephen King too!

You know what was really great about Christopher Glenn?

I defy you anyone to tell me weather he was a liberal or a conservative, a democrat or a republican. He was just a newsman and reported the news without the sickening slant that both side use today. He will be missed.
