Jill Glavan leads the CBS4 Problem Solvers team, which keeps her busy every day working on behalf of viewers to get results, protect their pocketbooks, and bring concerning issues to light.

Jill moved to Indianapolis in 2012 and quickly made the city her home. After growing up in the Dallas area, her immediate family moved to Indiana in the early 2000’s and Jill spent summers during her college years at the University of Missouri getting to know the area- she now considers herself an adopted Hoosier!

Jill began her career at WPTZ in Burlington, VT, where she got used to tough winters! In addition to her daily assignments, Jill produced a yearlong series where she became a “localvore,” only eating food produced within 40 miles of her own home. It was a challenging project, but gave her an appreciation of local food and businesses.

When she’s not at work, Jill enjoys reading, attending live concerts, spending time with family and friends, and cheering on her favorite teams: the Colts and Mizzou Tigers.

If you have a problem you’d like Jill to consider or an issue you want to expose, contact her at jglavan@cbs4indy.com or call the CBS4 Problem Solvers hotline at 317-677-1544.
