Glor was born in Tonawanda, New York, where he attended Kenmore East High School. He graduated magna cum laude from Syracuse University in 1997 with dual degrees in journalism (from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications), and in economics. At Syracuse, he was awarded the Henry J. Wolff prize, given to the Newhouse student "most proficient in journalism".
Glor was co-anchor of WSTM-TV Syracuse's 5 p.m. newscast and a reporter for the 11 p.m. newscast (2000–03). He was the morning news anchor from 1997-2000. He joined WSTM as a part-time producer while still attending college. Glor was named "Best Male News Anchor" by the Syracuse New Times, and one of the 40 most promising professionals under the age of 40. Glor was a contributing researcher and writer on The Legal Handbook for N.Y. State Journalists. He served as weekend evening news anchor and a weekday reporter for WHDH-TV in Boston from 2003–2007.
He joined CBS News in 2007, where he has covered a wide range of stories domestically and internationally, including the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, Hurricane Sandy's landfall in Atlantic City, the crash of Colgan Air Flight 3407, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, US Airways Flight 1549's landing in the Hudson, the 2011 Norway attacks, the 2010 Haiti earthquake, and the Iraq War (where he was embedded with U.S. soldiers). He has reported from four Olympic Games, including the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver for CBS. He was The Early Show’s primary political correspondent in 2008, drove cross-country for CBS's "Eye on the Road" series that same year, and reported on Pope Benedict XVI's visit to New York City and Washington, D.C.
In 2012, Glor focused much of his work on longer-form stories for the newly launched CBS This Morning. He filed an extended report on the use of domestic drones in the United States, conducted an investigation into alleged Medicare fraud at The SCOOTER Store, participated in the Army's sniper school at Fort Benning, Georgia, and profiled OCEARCH as they spot-tagged a great white shark off the coast of Massachusetts.
Glor and his wife Nicole (née Glab) live in New York and have a son.
