Glenn Hauser

Glenn Hauser

Glenn Hauser (born April 12, 1945 in Berkeley, California) is an internationally-known DXer and radio host from Enid, Oklahoma, United States. He produces and narrates the weekly 30-minute radio show "World Of Radio"," heard on various non-commercial AM and FM radio stations throughout the U.S., plus worldwide on shortwave radio. He began his broadcasting career doing Sunday night DX tips on Radio Canada International in the late 1970s, leading many to believe that he is, or was, a Canadian citizen.

World of Radio

"World Of Radio" debuted in 1980 on WUOT-FM in Knoxville, Tennessee and went to shortwave two years later. The program consists of Hauser reading news headlines about happenings in radio around the world, in a characteristic monotone voice. The program covers primarily shortwave, but also includes coverage of all aspects of the broadcast spectrum. Most items are contributed by listeners to the program or by various DX publications.

Mundo Radial

Hauser also produces a Spanish language version of "WOR" called "Mundo Radial". Hauser is a political liberal and agnostic, which occasionally puts him at odds with the fundamentalist-dominated American shortwave scene that carries his program.
