Hugh was born and raised in Chalk River, Ontario. His birthday is September 9.
Burrill began his career working for numerous radio stations for a few years. His first television gig was at his current home, Citytv Toronto, working as a writer for Breakfast Television. He was soon named the news producer and then he became an on-air personality as sports specialist for Breakfast Television and CityNews at Noon. He was then moved to CityNews at Six and CityNews Tonight Weekend Editions.
On January 19, 2010, as Rogers Media restructured its television operations, many Citytv staff members were laid off and several newscasts, including the weekend newscasts, were cancelled. Burrill became a sports reporter and substitute for Kathryn Humphreys as sports anchor. Weekend editions of CityNews returned in March 2011, and Burrill returned to his position of weekend sports anchor. Burrill then left the weekend news to focus on sports on their 24-hour news channel, CityNews Channel. Burrill currently works for Canadian sports network Sportsnet.
He is an avid Montreal Canadiens fan.
