Cheryl Glassford, Reporter

Cheryl Glassford is a reporter based in the news channel’s Pinellas County newsroom. 

Cheryl is originally from Gibsonburg, a small town in northwest Ohio.  She graduated from Bowling Green State University with a degree in communications.  Cheryl began her news career as a reporter and anchor at WKAG in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. She then worked as a reporter at both WTVQ,  and most recently WKYT  in Lexington, Kentucky.     

While reporting in Kentucky, Cheryl covered deadly tornados in both the central and western areas of the state, along with severe flooding that left communities in a state of emergency.  She also covered several high profile murder trials, major political races, crime and other issues that were facing the Commonwealth.  She says as a journalist, every day is different - which is just one reason why she loves her job of informing the public.    

Cheryl was recently nominated for an Emmy for a human-interest story she covered while with WKYT.

Growing up, Cheryl and her family would often vacation in the St. Petersburg area to escape Ohio winters.  With many great memories here already, she is excited to make new ones.

Cheryl enjoys running, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
