Global National BC Correspondent & Weekend Anchor
Robin Gill is Global National’s weekend anchor and British Columbia correspondent.
Since arriving at Vancouver’s national newsroom in December 2008, Gill has reported on some of the biggest news stories across Canada and around the world, including the high-profile inquiry into the death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski at the Vancouver International Airport, the United Nations meeting in Geneva at which world leaders discussed how to handle former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi and the aftermath of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan in March 2011.
In 2011, Gill found herself in the middle of chaos, reporting live from the Stanley Cup riots that erupted in downtown Vancouver. She was also on the anchor desk providing Canadians with up-to-the-minute coverage of the unprecedented attack on Parliament in Ottawa that left two dead, many in lockdown and heightened security across the country.
From February to March 2009, she travelled to India to produce a five-part special series on Canadians in the region.
Prior to Global National, Gill spent eight years reporting and anchoring at Global Toronto, covering some of the region’s biggest stories, including the Dalai Lama’s visit, the SARS outbreak and the Air France crash at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport. She also appeared on American television networks such as NBC and Fox, reporting live on those events.
Robin earned her degree from the University of British Columbia. She also has a diploma in broadcast journalism from BCIT.
While still in school, Gill began her career as a writer and researcher at BCTV (now Global BC). That led to a job as a reporter and anchor in a small town in Saskatchewan. From there, it was back to Vancouver for a reporting job at CBC. Gill later joined A-Channel Calgary (now Citytv) for the station’s launch in 1997, where she was a reporter and morning show co-host.
