Glenn and his family moved to Washington D.C. where he immediately started working for WRC-TV.

Nebraska Avenue, Washington, D.C.

Glenn’s first co-anchor at WRC was Neil Boggs and take a guess who the big “Clown” in the middle is.  Yes kiddies that is the original Ronald McDonald himself, Willard Scott. (More of Glenn, Neil and Willard)

Sometimes little Amy would like to go to the News Room with her Dad.  Here she is at his desk with Willard getting ready to do the weather.

Lots of clowning around on the set as is evident by some of the following pictures that cover the period that Glenn was at WRC.

Occasionally a celebrity would drop by the WRC Studio.  Glenn was friends with Carol Channing and here he is with her.

Glenn could be seen around
Washington at Embassy parties.  Here he and his wife Nancy are at Iranian Embassy with Eva Gabor and husband.
