Glenn is a native Rhode Islander and an Emmy award winning journalist who has worked in broadcasting in Rhode Island for more than forty years. He produced and narrated the WPRI television series “Not to be Forgotten”, which chronicled the lives of unsung heroes of his home state. In addition to writing for “Your Smithfield Magazine”, Glen serves on the board of directors for the Rhode Island Heritage Hall of Fame and the Blackstone Valley Historical Society.

He regularly gives talks and video presentations for historical societies and is the coauthor of “Rhode Island: A Genial History.” Glenn’s easy going style and knowledge of local history makes for an informative and entertaining evening.
