“Glenn is one of those steady and grounding presences in an often chaotic office setting. Newsrooms require leaders who are calm and wise, but also understanding and humane. Glenn never fails to bring lightness when its required, but seriousness of purpose when that's required as well. He is a great leader.” August 22, 2010Kevin Newman, Global National Founding Anchor/Executive Editor, Global Television (Formerly of Good Morning America)
Kevin Newman worked with Glenn when he was Deputy Editor, Postmedia News
