ON AIR NOW5:00 AM - 6:00 AMAmerica In the Morning with John Trout

Glenn O’Brien

It all started at a 1000-watt local AM station in a college town over forty years ago, and now Glenn’s wild radio journey has come full circle at WILI.    Before Glenn began as host of WILI’s Saturday Solid Gold in 2018, he served as  “utility announcer” covering a wide variety of on air duties at all six radio stations of Hall Communications in eastern Connecticut.   Glenn’s background includes programming several stations in the Northeast, plus positions in Hartford at WWYZ, WRCH and WZMX.   At the “Big D” WDRC, he programmed rock n’ roll oldies as music director.    The North Branford, CT native now lives in Colchester with his wife Linda, dog and two cats.    New Hampshire has been like a second home and favorite getaway for years, but his fixation with all things Canadian grew out of an intense interest in history and geography.   Glenn is a self-described news junkie.   He has also been the morning host at sister station WICH Norwich since 2015 and is the voice you hear often throughout the week between the songs here on 14 WILI & 95.3 FM.
