Vern Glenn is the weekend sports anchor and sports reporter for CBS 5/The CW 44 Cable 12.
Before joining our stations Vern worked at KRON as a sports reporter, weekend sports anchor, and MMJ for 23 years.
At KRON, Vern was tagged with the nickname “Mr. Involvement,” for literally throwing himself into the middle of his feature stories. He has bungee-jumped, been thrown off a bull, taken blows from a professional boxer, and run a motorcycle into a wall during a race, among other memorable features. From a shoot-out with Chris Mullin to becoming a human target for the Cal football team an the 49ers, “Mr. Involvement” has created a niche in the market. John Marvel of the Contra Costa Times said, “The Mr. Involvement series is the best feature on TV.” Here is a snippet-Vern, with The Hanson Brothers, from the movie, "Slap Shot." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uj4Wa4ymPRI&feature=youtube_gdata_player
Vern became part of the KNBR Radio Morning Show team in 1998, and drops in now and then as a guest.
In May 1996, Vern was an honorary torch bearer in San Francisco as part of the Olympic Torch Relay, which stormed through the country on a 15,000-mile route through 42 states from Los Angeles to Atlanta.
Vern also worked at WBAL-TV in Baltimore, Maryland, as weekend sports anchor and sports reporter, beginning in 1987. Prior, he was sports anchor and weekday reporter/photographer for WXEX-TV, now WRIC, in Richmond, Virginia, from 1985 to 1987.
