Since Glover’s entrance into journalism in 1994 as the co-editor of the Sandtown-Winchester ViewPoint Newspaper, Glover has written for a number of publications, including the Northwest Voice Newspaper (Baltimore County), the Afro American Newspaper, the Baltimore Times and The Final Call Newspaper.
Additionally, Glover has hosted news talk shows at both WEAA 88.9 FM and at WOLB. Further, he has served as a guest host on several occasions for The Tom Moore Show on WCBM 680 AM.
As for television, Glover has provided political analysis for all of the local TV networks in Baltimore – beginning with WBAL TV 11 in 2000. He made his national TV debut in 2015 on TV One’s The Roland Martin Show and on CNN with Carol Costello; this was amidst the Freddie Gray Unrest in Baltimore which equated to the first riots in the city in 47 years.
Glover’s claim to fame is his website, www.bmorenews.com. Dubbed as “the news before the news”, Bmorenews has covered news across the US, including 40 trips to the White House since 2010. Additionally, Glover has covered news in Jordan, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Jamaica, and Canada.
An avid writer, Glover tends to cover Maryland politics and business.
“While covering politics is a must, I happen to have more faith in the business and entrepreneurial potential in the African American community,” Glover said.
Hence, in 2011, Glover began hosting The ORIGINAL Black Wall Street SERIES, a string of ongoing business networking events that feature the Joe Manns Black Wall Street Awards. To date, Bmorenews and its partners have honored over 1,500 black entrepreneurs and professionals as well as the people who support them regardless of race in 6 US cities: New York, Baltimore, Washington, Richmond (VA), Atlanta and New Orleans. The aim is to encourage entrepreneurship as a viable means to improve the trajectory of Black America.
While Glover began his collegiate career at Morehouse College, he graduated with honors as a Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program Scholar from Coppin State University. He did graduate studies at Morgan State University in International Affairs. A Paul Laurence Dunbar Community High School alumni, Glover is the proud father of two Baltimore Polytechnic Institute graduates, Asaan Payton Glover and N’yinde’ Amaari Glover. He has one grandson, Amari Glover.
