Latest information in case of two murdered Delphi teens

Jill Glavan is thrilled to be back in Indianapolis, where her family has lived for more than 10 years. After growing up in the Dallas, Texas area and going to school at the University of Missouri, she now considers herself an adopted Hoosier.

Jill began her career at WPTZ in Burlington, VT, where she got used to tough winters! In addition to her daily assignments, Jill did a yearlong series where she became a “localvore,” only eating food produced within 40 miles of her own home. It was a challenging project, but gave her an appreciation of local food and businesses.

Since joining the FOX59 team in 2012, Jill has contributed to every newscast. You can now see her on Fox 59 News at 10 and Newspoint at 11. She also produces the popular “Dirty Dining” series. When she’s not at work, she enjoys reading, spending time with family and friends, and cheering on her favorite teams: the Colts and Mizzou Tigers.
