Wendy Bergfeldt, MC
Wendy Bergfeldt brings over two decades of experience to her work as host and producer of Cape Breton's "Mainstreet" and "Island Echoes" programs. She began her career as a general assignment news reporter in a small radio station in Saskatchewan's southwest corner. After having served in a few prairie cities, and a short stint up North (in February), she was given a six week assignment as a studio director with the CBC in Cape Breton, and the Island has been home, for the most part, ever since.
In addition to hosting and producing daily current affairs shows, on-location specials, and live performance events, Wendy was a columnist for CBC radio's "Morningside" with the late Peter Gzowski and the Canadian correspondent for the BBC's "Scottish Connection." She also has several radio and television field production credits from such programs as "Mr Anderson's Fine Tunes", "Travelling Folk", "The ECMA Songwriters Circle." and a number of independent film and video projects. She has been honoured with nominations and awards from several music industry and cultural organizations over the years and in 2010 she was presented with the Royal Canadian Legion's Certificate of Merit for her work in the wider community.
