Jill Glavan is thrilled to be back in Indianapolis, where her family has lived since the mid-2000s. After growing up in the Dallas, Texas area and graduating from 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 produced 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/CBS4 team in 2012, Jill has contributed to every newscast. In 2017, she launched CBS4 Problem Solvers and began spending her days helping viewers resolve problems, avoid rip-offs, and expose corruption.

When she’s not at work, Jill enjoys reading, spending time with family and friends, and cheering on her favorite teams: the Colts and Mizzou Tigers.
