Robin Gill is a Canadian journalist. She is the weekend anchor for Global National and B.C. correspondent. Robin has also worked for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and from BCIT she earned a diploma in broadcast journalism.

Robin decided from high school that she would have a career in media. She began her career as a writer and researcher for CHAN-TV. Her next position required her to move to Saskatchewan for a job reporting and anchoring for a local station. From Saskatchewan she then moved on and reported for the CBC in Vancouver. Robin helped launch, A-Channel, a new station in Calgary (now Citytv) where she hosted both the morning show and reported for the evening news. She then moved to Toronto, Canada's largest media market, in the summer of 2000, to report for Global News in Toronto (CIII-TV) before becoming the weekend anchor.

Since moving to Toronto, Robin has worked on many stories highlighting local issues, such as the SARS outbreak, the 2003 & 2007 provincial elections, the Blackout of 2003, the Dalai Lama's visit and other stories. She was also active in reporting on the 2005 "Year of the Gun" Story for Global News and hosted and reported on Community events in affected areas which were aimed at reducing gun violence in troubled Toronto neighbourhoods.

In December 2008 Gill joined Global National as the new Weekend Anchor.
