A native Texan, Brittany Glas is originally from San Antonio. Brittany recently graduated from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah in April 2011. She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the Department of Communications with an emphasis in Broadcast Journalism.
Passionate about life, news and most importantly, people, Brittany has a sincere enthusiasm for her job. She believes in the ability to empower people through information - fulfilling our station's brand, "Always looking out for you."
While in college, Brittany was actively involved in BYU's award-winning student-run live daily newscast. During her time in the newsroom, she served in multiple positions - as a reporter, producer, and anchor.
With a long-time interest in politics and American government, Brittany really enjoys political reporting. She believes that as a reporter it's important to effectively communicate how legislation at the city, state, and federal level can directly impact our daily lives. Brittany reported extensively on election shows in Utah the last two years and looks forward to covering the presidential election for 2012 here in Wichita Falls.
As a junior at BYU, Brittany was able to take her political passions to Washington, D.C. During the summer of 2010, she interned for NBC News Channel on Capitol Hill. During her time interning at the bureau, Brittany worked with NBC affiliate stations across the country to carry out interviews for their various news shows. She covered such events as The Scripps National Spelling Bee and citizen response to the controversial Arizona immigration law in Washington. She says her internship was one of a lifetime!
Her senior year, Brittany also had the amazing opportunity to participate in the production of a 50-minute documentary film entitled "I Am Not My Body." The project took her to Romania where she served as its lead reporter. She will testify to this day that the story of a young Romanian boy who survived a tragic house fire that left him orphaned - the story the documentary tells - changed her life. She feels blessed to have gotten to work on this project as a student.
In her spare time, Brittany likes to dabble in photography, visit art museums, and watch foreign films. She also loves to exercise.
Brittany Glas joined the Newschannel 6 team as an anchor for Newschannel 6 Early Morning and Newschannel 6 This Morning in November 2011. She is also a daily reporter, committed to delivering news that matters to Texomans.
She is happy to be back in the Lone Star State and looks forward to getting to know the people of Wichita Falls!
