Rachel Glaser joined the Newschannel 3 WWMT team in August 2017. A born and bred Midwesterner, Rachel is excited to cover stories that matter most to the local community she now calls home.
Before moving to West Michigan, Rachel worked as a political reporter at the NBC affiliate in Austin, Texas, where she covered a wide range of topics during the 2017 Texas legislative session and the 2016 presidential election. With nearly a decade of reporting experience, Rachel has worked as a general assignment reporter covering news in Rochester, New York, South Bend, Indiana and Chicago.
Originally from the Chicago area, Rachel began her broadcasting career at KOMU-TV in Columbia, Missouri. She has a degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Missouri and is a proud Mizzou Tiger.
In her free time, Rachel enjoys spending time with family and friends, exploring new places in Michigan, and spoiling her ferocious dog, Rufus.
Rachel is very excited to be a part of the Newschannel 3 family, and to have the opportunity to tell stories that provoke thought and inspire change within her very own community.
