Firstly, if you don’t already know her, meet Vancouver Island Radio personality, Robyn Burns! Robyn grew up in Prince Rupert. She’s proud of her British Columbian roots and has a lengthy career in broadcast. Prior to hosting, Robyn worked both as a reporter and newsreader.

Last but not least, allow us to introduce you to Quebec City-raised Bruno Baronet, who’s coming over to Victoria from the mainland/ Vancouver, where he now calls home.

Bruno is French Canadian and has worked in French/ English bilingual film and television for over 20 years.

It’s safe to say we’re in great hands!
Looking forward to seeing you at Spirit of 150 Victoria – First Night!
