His beat included mostly state legislative and political issues, but also included a full range of general news that happened in Maine and sometimes beyond. Glenn previously worked as a reporter and editor for newspapers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In 1979, he and his wife Betty Adams worked as co-editors of the daily newspaper published aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2 as the liner traveled around the world. They live in Augusta.
