The Morning Media Menu With CBS’s Jeff Glor

mornmm.gifToday on the Menu we welcome Jeff Glor, who was recently named Saturday anchor of the CBS Evening News. Glor, a Buffalo native, talks about what it was like to do his first-ever broadcast from the site of last month’s Buffalo plane crash.

We also talk Twitter (Glor has yet to be sucked in), print news vs. digital (Glor gets his news online), and…drumroll please…what it was like to grow up watching Irv Weinstein et al anchor Buffalo’s Eyewitness News — those of you who hail from either Buffalo or the Greater Toronto area will understand immediately why this is so exciting. You can listen to the podcast live every morning at 9amET on BlogTalkRadio.com/mediabistro and call in at 646-929-0321. You can also subscribe to the iTunes feed of the podcast by clicking the “iTunes” button.
