Glen Seeber
News Presentation Copy Editor

Glen Seeber was born in Kansas, but his earliest memories are of residing in Ardmore, followed by attending kindergarten and first grade in Tripoli, Libya, where his father worked as a geologist. The rest of Glen's education was obtained in El Dorado, Kan., up to an associate degree in liberal arts. He earned his bachelor's in journalism at the University of Oklahoma, spent a brief time working at the Hobbs News-Sun in New Mexico, then honed his craft for more than 22 years at The Duncan Banner, where he advanced from reporter to news editor and finally managing editor, winning numerous awards along the way. He went on to work as managing editor at the Broken Arrow Daily Ledger, where under his leadership the newspaper won the Oklahoma Press Association's Sequoyah Award for best newspaper in its division. After working for a short time at newspapers in New Mexico and Arkansas, he returned to Oklahoma to work on the Presentation Desk at The Oklahoman as a senior copy editor. Glen is also the creator and owner of TheChisholmTrail.com, a website devoted to the historic Chisholm Trail.
