Robin Gill has reported on major events at home and abroad, including the 2011 Stanley Cup riots in Vancouver, the devastating aftermath of the tsunami in Japan, the Air France crash at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, and the Rolling Stones SARS benefit concert in Toronto. But now, she’s the face of Global National’s weekend news.

The weekend anchor and B.C. correspondent joined Vancouver’s national newsroom in December 2008. Before that, she had stints at Global TV in Toronto, CBC Vancouver, and the former A-Channel in Calgary. She launched her career as a writer and researcher at BCTV, now Global News BC, while she was studying Journalism. She has a diploma in broadcast journalism from BCIT and a degree in International Relations from the University of British Columbia.

“I like a car to cradle me. I don’t want to feel like I’m going to slide out of my seat or the car will tip over when turning corners. I need it to feel snug around my body, and that’s what this car does for me. I like that it feels grounded which gives me a sense of control when I’m driving in bad weather.”

“It says that I like international and worldly, but am really quite down to earth,” says Gill, who grew up in East Vancouver, B.C.
