He teaches a class called News Literacy for the Florida Gulf Coast University journalism program.

Glenn’s newspaper career spans almost 40 years, where he mostly covered sports but says he also “wrote about just about everything from theater to politics to veterans to the weather and hundreds of history stories.” He spent 25 years with the Fort Myers News-Press.

He has also been active with the Southwest Florida Historical Society, serving as president from 2016 to 2020.

Glenn has written a novel, “Grabmore,” which he calls a “comic crime caper.” His 85,000-word sequel, “Grabmore, And More,” has been submitted to Martin Sisters Publishing, which published his first novel.
