Jill Glavan joined the FOX59 team in 2012 and quickly made Indianapolis her home. After growing up in the Dallas area, her immediate family moved to Indiana and Jill spent summers during her college years at the University of Missouri getting to know Indy- she now considers herself an adopted Hoosier! One of those summers was even spent interning at FOX59 as Jill developed her skills as a journalist.

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 team, Jill has contributed to every newscast. Some highlights of her career (thus far) in Indianapolis include producing the Dirty Dining series, helping countless Hoosiers get answers they needed, participating in an inspiring WWII Honor Flight, and traveling to Super Bowl XLVIII in New York for a week of news coverage.

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