Richard Glover (born 13 July 1958) is an Australian journalist, author and radio personality.

Richard grew up in Papua-New Guinea, Sydney and Canberra and graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Arts with a first class Honours degree. He lives with the playwright Debra Oswald, and they have two sons. He has written ten books, including the humour book Desperate Husbands, which was a bestseller in Australia and has been published in translation in Italy and Poland.

He presents the radio show "Drive" from Monday to Friday, 3pm to 6pm on 702 ABC Sydney. He joined 702 ABC Sydney in January 1996, taking over the Drive segment from Mike Carlton who'd established a solid and popular format.

Richard's writing for the stage includes "Lonestar Lemon", which has toured nationally with Genevieve Lemon and "A Christmas Story", which premiered at the Sydney Opera House Drama Theatre in December 1998, with Richard Wherrett directing.

He is also a journalist for the Sydney Morning Herald. His weekly humour column has appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald since 1985. Richard has also worked as that paper's News Editor, Arts Editor and European Correspondent.
