"Glenn Wills grew up in Huntsville, Alabama. He graduated from Butler High School and the University of Alabama in Huntsville. After a few stops along the way, he eventually found his niche in television news. After starting with an internship at WAAY-TV, Glenn then made his way to WHNT-TV as a full-time news photographer. His path would eventually lead him to WVTM TV in Birmingham in 1996. First as a photographer, then as an assignment editor and ending up as a satellite truck engineer. Operating the satellite truck kept him on the road a great deal. In eight and a half years, he managed to log close to a quarter million miles. This led him to notice many vanishing reminders of the past. All of his findings of abandoned structures were photographed and culminated in his book, Forgotten Alabama. "
