About the Host

rebecca-zandbergen.jpgRebecca Zandbergen comes to us from CBC Ottawa where she's slid into the host's chair on almost every program: Ottawa Morning, All in a Day, In Town and Out and Bandwidth.

She's also a jack of all trades. She's been up at 3:30 a.m. to read the news on Ottawa Morning, dashed off to a fire to deliver a live report, and filed for CBC Ottawa's supper hour television program as well as CBC News Network.

Before her time at CBC Ottawa, Rebecca worked in CBC stations all over the country. Among other things, she's covered the Yukon Legislature, bush fires in Alberta and Halifax's art scene.

She also teaches journalism, most recently at Carleton University. She's also taught at Algonquin College, the National University in Rwanda and the Cape Peninsula University of Technology in South Africa.

She's also filed radio documentaries from Rwanda and South Africa.

Rebecca's an avid runner, and enjoys traveling and blogging.
