Jon Glasgow is an established and creative storyteller who connects with his viewers through his honesty and sincerity. After working nearly a decade in Canada, Jon was recruited by KUSA 9News, one of the top local news stations in the United States. The first time I saw Jon's work, I knew that a station like KUSA was his destiny! And, he didn't prove me wrong!
Less than a year after joining KUSA 9News, Jon was quickly promoted to the Weekend Morning Anchor along with his responsibilities as a Weekday Morning Reporter. Jon also is a fill-in anchor on 9News at Noon. He has made a huge impact on the Weekend Morning ratings, a show that leads the market. He turned some great HFR's for the station.
He recently reported on CoorsTek, a little-known company yet has become a global ceramics empire that was founded by the Coors family, most famously known for their brewery. They have made revolutionary ceramics that are used in a myriad of products for the private sector and Federal Agencies like NASA, US Military, and medical equipment companies. Coorstek is currently working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
He made the move to Denver, Colorado from CTV News in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada where he researched wrote, and presented original stories for broadcast and online, including the investigation into the multi-million-dollar car exportation of North American luxury cars overseas. The story aired across the country on CTV News stations and received rave reviews from viewers and members of the automotive industry. CTV Vancouver made Canadian journalism history in 2017 as it was presented with the prestigious Edward R Murrow Award for Overall Excellence – Large Market Television. CTV Vancouver’s newscast was named Canada’s Best Local Newscast by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television. CTV News at Six was named BC’s Best Newscast – Large Market TV - by the Canadian arm of the RTDNA.
Born in the small town of Devon, Alberta, his career has taken him all the way from Edmonton to Vancouver and now the United States, but Jon now feels he is in his element at KUSA where he reports regularly and is filling in very regularly on KUSA’s Weekday morning show.
Jon is versatile both on the desk and on the beat. He can jump from hard news to light features, to hosting morning TV. Jon understands the multi-faceted journalist of today and thrives in new situations and thinking on his feet.
