Glenn Marini began as WANE 15’s Sports Director in July of 2008 and is proud to call Fort Wayne home.
While working at WANE 15 Glenn has been honored with “Best Sportscast” by the Indiana Broadcasters Association twice, including in 2017 for the “Highlight Zone.” Among numerous other awards, he took home top prize in the state for sports videography from the Associated Press in 2014 & 2016 and earned the Bob Parker Award for his baseball coverage in 2016.
Before coming to Fort Wayne Glenn served as the sports director at KAIT-TV (ABC) in Jonesboro, Arkansas for three years. While in Jonesboro Glenn won multiple awards from the Associated Press, including the state’s “Best Documentary” for his series on NASCAR legend Mark Martin. Prior to that Glenn worked as a sports anchor for WKAG in Hopkinsville, Kentucky.
A native of Muncie, Ind., Glenn graduated magna cum laude from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. His family still lives in Muncie with both of his parents having worked at Ball State University.
Glenn and his wife, Emily, have been married since 2007. They welcomed their first daughter, Caroline, into the world in December of 2010. Almost three years later their second child, Lucia, was born.
When Glenn is not at work he likes to spend time with his family, read, and go to as many baseball games as possible. He also plays a mean game of ping pong. Glenn scored two points in his professional basketball debut with the Washington Generals while playing against the Harlem Globetrotters only to retire immediately afterwards due to general soreness and a lack of talent.
