Night of Discovery Event Emcees
Kimberly Gill & Devin Scillian
WDIV Channel 4 NEWS Anchors
Kimberly Gill joined the Local 4 News team in November 2014.
Before joining WDIV, Gill worked in Pittsburgh and Cleveland. She started her career at WBTW, the CBS affiliate in Florence/ Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Although she's originally from South Carolina, Gill has come to appreciate the change of seasons and the cold Midwest winters.
Before working in television, Kimberly drove 18-wheelers for FedEx and fueled commercial and private airplanes for Eagle Aviation. She worked both jobs to pay her way through college at the University of South Carolina, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism. Even today Kimberly maintains her Class-A commercial driver’s license just in case TV doesn't work out and she needs to return to driving trucks.
Throughout her career, Kimberly has been recognized for her work in broadcasting. She was named Personality of the Year in 2009 by the Ohio Broadcaster’s Hall of Fame. She’s also a two-time Emmy winner.
Kimberly is an avid sports fan and especially enthusiastic about her alma mater's football team, the South Carolina Gamecocks.
She’s thrilled to be in The D and is looking forward to meeting people, discovering new restaurants and shopping.
Devin joined WDIV-TV in August, 1995 as a reporter and moved into the anchor position in 1996. He's been honored for his work both at home and abroad. His assignments have taken him from the Forbidden City in Beijing to St. Peter's Square at the Vatican, from the Red Sea to Moscow, from Jerusalem to Siberia. His well-worn passport has taken him to six Olympiads. Three times he has won the Edward R. Murrow Award, one of the highest honors in broadcast journalism.
After graduating from the William Allen White School of Journalism at the University of Kansas in 1985, Devin began his career at WIBW-TV in Topeka. His job path took him to WAND in Decatur, Illinois, KLTV in Tyler, Texas, and KFOR in Oklahoma City where his around the clock coverage of the bombing at the Murrah Federal Building in 1995 helped the station win a Peabody Award. Nurturing a long love of politics, he created Flashpoint which quickly became required viewing for those in the know in Detroit.
Devin is the author of 15 children's books. His book "A is for America" became a national bestseller. In 2004, First Lady Laura Bush invited him to read at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. His book, "Memoirs of a Goldfish," has won a slew of awards including the Wanda Gag Award for the nation's best "read aloud" book. His other books include "Fibblestax," "Cosmo's Moon," and "H Is For Honor." His newest title is "Memoirs of a Hamster."
An accomplished musician and songwriter, Devin has won the prestigious Detroit Music Award for Best Country Performer. He has released three albums of his original songs. He and his band "Arizona Son" make frequent appearances on the summer concert circuit. He's opened for Toby Keith, Reba McEntire, and LeAnn Rimes.
Devin and his wife Corey have been together since high school in Junction City, Kansas. They reside in Grosse Pointe Park. They have four children, Griffin, Quinn, Madison and Christian.
