Julian Glover | ABC7 KGO News Team
As a kid, it wasn't unusual for me to get in trouble with teachers for being chatty in class. The gift of gab came easy - maybe too easy. Thank goodness for me, Thomas G. Pullen Elementary School had a burgeoning communications program and, by sixth grade, I was "majoring" in media production. What did I know about media production? Not much at the time. But I have no idea where I would be without that experience as a kid opening my eyes to the field of communications and journalism.

I made the trip out to the Bay Area to join the ABC7 News team as South Bay Reporter and fill-in anchor in December 2019. In January 2021 I accepted a new position with the station, leading our coverage of Race, Culture & Social Justice. The creation of this position is a demonstration of ABC's commitment to covering pressing issues affecting marginalized communities in a more comprehensive and culturally competent manner. I'm honored to take on the responsibility.

In 2021 and 2022 my reporting on discrimination in the home appraisal process and devaluation of Black neighborhoods prompted action by the Biden-Harris administration and spurred legislation in Congress to address longstanding inequities. The result of these efforts will be chronicled in the forthcoming 'Lowballed' documentary focusing on appraisal discrimination, slated for a December 2022 release. My reporting was awarded with 2022 Emmy and regional Edward R. Murrow awards for excellence in reporting on topics of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Prior to joining the ABC family, I was the morning anchor at WOIO-CBS 19 in Cleveland, Ohio, where I anchored the morning news and hosted a podcast-turned-talk show "Sunny Side Up." During my time in Cleveland, I covered the Dayton Mass Shooting, medical breakthroughs at the Cleveland Clinic, the Cavaliers' appearances in the NBA Finals, and, of course, lots of snow.

Before calling Cleveland home, I worked at WAVE 3 News in Louisville, Kentucky, as an anchor and reporter. I anchored breaking news for the station's #1 rated morning show and reported on everything from the UofL basketball scandal (both times), American Pharoah's historic Derby win, the Kim Davis gay marriage saga, and anchored the news the morning after the passing of "The Greatest," Muhammad Ali. I won an Associated Press award for my coverage of the heroin-opioid epidemic and the toll it took on children born addicted.

I was lucky enough to start my career in sunny South Florida. I worked as a breaking news reporter and fill-in anchor at Fox 4 in Fort Myers and as an associate producer at the CBS owned & operated station in Miami, WFOR. My investigative work in Fort Myers earned me my first Emmy nomination.

I am originally from Washington, D.C. and grew up in the surrounding suburbs in Maryland, where much of my family is still located. I'm an alumnus of the University of Miami and a proud Miami Hurricane who bleeds orange and green. I earned my Master of Science in Communications from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University with a specialization in journalism innovation. I currently serve as an adjunct professor for Syracuse's Communications@Syracuse online graduate program in communications. It's an honor (and a lot of fun) to help train the next crop of journalists.

I couldn't be happier to call the Bay Area home and I'm looking forward to exploring all it has to offer. I love live music and festivals, the arts, a good laugh and great food. Please send your favorite restaurant recommendations my way!
