Chauncy Glover joins CBS Los Angeles 2 KCBS and KCAL 9

Chauncy Glover is joining CBS Los Angeles 2 KCBS and KCAL 9 as weekday evening newscast co-anchor after leaving abc13 Houston KTRK in August 2023.

Glover will join Pat Harvey as co-anchor of "KCAL News on CBS Los Angeles" at 5 and 11pm starting October 2, 2023.  He will also co-anchor the 8 and 10pm newscasts on KCAL with Suzie Suh.

"It is an honor to be able to continue to live out my childhood dreams by joining the KCAL News team," Glover said. "I am well aware of what KCAL means to Southern California and I have long been an admirer of many of my new colleagues, including the legendary Pat Harvey – who is someone I hold in high regard as a journalist and shares my love of singing and making a joyful noise."

"As I have had the pleasure of getting to know Chauncy Glover, it quickly became obvious that he has the heart of someone who passionately embraces the KCAL News mission of making our communities better places to live," Joel Vilmenay, president and general manager of CBS News and Stations’ local businesses said. "Chauncy is already missed in Houston and fondly remembered in Detroit as well as the other communities where he has worked and lived. We look forward to having him join us and become part of the fabric of the Southland."

Channel 13 Houston fans can still watch Glover on the CBS News Los Angeles streaming channel.

He joins the KCAL News team following an eight-year tenure as an anchor at KTRK. 

Glover joined abc13 as a weekend morning anchor in 2015 before he transitioned to weekdays, where he helped launch its 3pm newscast

In 2020, Glover was promoted to weeknight anchor.

Before his time at KTRK, Glover served as a reporter at WDIV Local 4 Detroit. During this period, he founded the Chauncy Glover Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to offering hands-on mentoring programs focused on education, manhood, and self-empowerment to Black and Latino male youth. The inspiration for CGP came from a heartbreaking incident where Glover covered a breaking news story, witnessing the tragic death of a high school student who was shot while attempting to rob his school's basketball coach.

Glover's passion for television news traces back to his childhood, when his father constructed an anchor desk in their living room. Young Chauncy would eagerly report on family news every Sunday after church, igniting his lifelong interest in journalism.

Before Detroit, the Troy University grad worked for such stations as WTVM News Leader 9 Columbus, Georgia, as well as Action News Jax CBS 47 WJAX and Fox 30 WFOX Jacksonville, Florida.
