Jonathan Glasgow is a solid storyteller with an honest approach to connecting with viewers. At 31 years old, he has been in the broadcast industry for nearly a decade, doing a variety of jobs at several stations. Starting at CKSA News in Lloydminster, he worked his way up to four competitive news markets including one of the top stations in Canada. Currently, he works as a general assignment reporter at CTV News Vancouver.
CTV Vancouver made Canadian journalism history this year as it was presented with the prestigious Edward R Murrow Award for Overall Excellence – Large Market Television. CTV Vancouver’s newscast was named Canada’s Best Local Newscast by the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television. CTV News at Six was named BC’s Best Newscast – Large Market TV - by the Canadian arm of the RTDNA.
Born in the small town of Devon, Alberta, his career has taken him all the way from Edmonton to Vancouver, but Jonathan was most in his element at CTV Regina where he hosted and helped launch, a first of its kind, morning show; a position he held for two years.
As a young child in a traditional small Canadian town, Jonathan's father turned their garden into an outdoor rink in the winter time. Every free moment was spent on skates with him and his friends. While playing competitive Canadian junior hockey, he traded in his goalie pads for a microphone. The dream of playing in the NHL quickly turned into a broadcasting career to cover his favorite childhood team, the Edmonton Oilers for the Score Sports Network.
Jonathan is versatile both on the desk and on the beat. He can jump from hard news to a light feature, to hosting morning TV. Jonathan understands the multi-faceted journalist of today and thrives in new situations and thinking on his feet.
Charismatic and a fresh face, Jonathan is hungry to take his career to the American market.
