Robin Gill, Global National’s weekend anchor and British Columbia correspondent, is moving on from the network after 21 years.

Gill is pursuing a new venture as Vice-President of Vancouver public relations agency Talk Shop Media. Her last day on air will be Dec. 19.

Gill started her career at BCTV (now Global BC) as a writer and researcher while still studying Broadcast Journalism at BCIT.

From there, she did reporting and anchoring stints with CTV Yorkton, CBC Vancouver, and A-Channel (now Citytv) Calgary. She initially joined Global News as a reporter and anchor in Toronto in 2000, arriving in the network’s national newsroom in Vancouver in Dec. 2008.
