Chief Meteorologist David Glenn has been awarded the prestigious Seal of Approval for broadcasting from both the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association.
A Tennessee Valley native, David was bitten by the "weather bug" at age eight when a fear of tornadoes turned into a fascination of weather. He served as a Weather Watcher for WTVC while attending Gordon Lee High School in Chickamauga. David is a graduate of Jacksonville State University, where he earned a BS Degree in Geosciences. Then, attended graduate school at Mississippi State University, where he continued his studies in meteorology and served as a graduate teaching assistant.
David has been at Newschannel 9 since late 2006. He began his career in meteorology here in Chattanooga at another station from 1991-1998. Then, served as Chief Meteorologist at WPMI-TV in Pensacola/Mobile from late 1998 to 2006. He was able to cover 11 tropical cyclones, including direct hits from Hurricanes Ivan, Dennis and Katrina. His coverage of Hurricane Ivan earned him the Associated Press award for Best Weather Anchor in Alabama. He also won the same award more recently from the Associated Press of Tennessee. Excerpts of his coverage of Hurricane Katrina were featured in National Geographic's: Inside Hurricane Katrina video. During his time on the Gulf Coast, he had the chance of a lifetime to fly with the US Navy Blue Angels.
David and his wife Rebecca have two sons, Jack and Carter who are both currently at the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!)
When not predicting the weather, David is a huge sports fan (Braves, Preds, Falcons, Titans & Dodgers). He is also an avid runner competing in local and regional running events.
