Glynn Hill recalls from the time he was a toddler his grandfather stressing the importance of newspapers.

He is a junior at Howard majoring in Political Science and is on the Dean’s List as well as a contributing writer to 101 Magazine, The District Chronicles and elite-insiders.com. Glynn was editor-in-chief of The Island, and a reporter for Spotlight Network WHUT-TV 32, PBS Washington, DC. He has experience as a play-by-play announcer/producer for Howard Sports News and as both sports editor and editor-in-chief for The Hilltop Newspaper.
