Three-time Emmy Award winning journalist Chauncy Glover is an Anchor/Reporter for KTRK ABC13 in Houston, Texas; formerly of WDIV Local 4 News in the city of Detroit. He started his TV career at WTVM News Leader 9 in Columbus, Georgia; and two years later, he joined CBS 47 and Fox 30 in Jacksonville, Florida as a special projects and General Assignment reporter.
He earned a reputation for breaking several exclusive stories, including landing a national exclusive with the “Hollywood Hacker,” Christopher Chaney who was arrested and only admitted to Chauncy to hacking into the email accounts of A-list celebrities. Chauncy also won several awards for his story “Chauncy’s Journey,” which featured him reuniting with his family in his hometown which had been devastated by tornadoes. He later worked with viewers in Jacksonville to set up a trip to Athens, Alabama where they delivered food, clothes, household items and even money to help rebuild a church.
In December 2011, Chauncy joined WDIV Local 4 News team in Detroit, Michigan as a Reporter/Fill-in anchor. While at WDIV, he covered the Sandy Hook Massacre in Newtown where he landed an exclusive interview with the teacher who was in the classroom next to the one where the massacre took place. Chauncy also reported live from Cleveland as three women held in captivity for ten years were freed.
But there’s one story that Chauncy covered in Detroit that he says he’ll never forget. He was sent on breaking news to a school where two students had been shot by a coach after they tried to rob him. One suspect was found wounded and rushed to the hospital, but the second one was nowhere in sight, until Chauncy stumbled upon the young man lying in the street. He had been shot in the chest and was clinging to life. After witnessing the teenager die on the streets of Detroit, he went back to that school, Martin Luther King Jr. Sr. High School, and created this mentorship program for young men. “The Chauncy Glover Project” (CGP) is a hands-on, extensive mentoring program that grooms teenage boys into upstanding and accomplished gentlemen. The program focuses on dressing for success, manhood, etiquette, college readiness, tutoring, public speaking, community service, and so much more. The CGP Gents and Young Gents are 6-12th graders who Chauncy and other mentors meet with twice a month for empowerment sessions and outings. The CGP was proud to send its inaugural class known as “The Fearless 14″ to college with scholarships.
Although he is now based in Houston, Texas; Chauncy regularly travels back to Detroit, Michigan to work along with the other mentors of CGP to mentor, groom, and inspire the current CGP Gents and CGP Young Gents.
Chauncy studied Broadcast Journalism, Music and Theatre at Troy University. He also has a degree in Public Relations. He became the first Mr. Troy University Homecoming King and is a member of the school’s Alumni Association. He also graduated at the top of his college class and was awarded the Sydney Sullivan Top Senior Award for academic excellence, forwardness in faith and campus and community involvement.
He was born and raised in Athens, Alabama, and is honored to now be an Anchor/ Reporter for KTRK ABC13 in Houston, Texas.
