Meet the team: Robyn Bresnahan
Maybe it's the last name, but I've been mistaken for being Irish, American - even Polish.
In actual fact, I grew up in the foothills of Calgary, Canada. I don't say "aboot" but do certainly fall into the national stereotype of loving snow and anything with maple syrup.
I made my presenting debut on World Have Your Say from New Orleans in 2010 where I spent a month reporting on the toll the Gulf of Mexico oil spill was taking on fishing families.
It was one of the most rewarding assignments of my career.
Before joining the BBC, I was a journalist with the CBC in Canada.
My most (un)memorable moment happened while reporting from the Calgary Stampede festival and rodeo. As I was recording an interview, an 80-pound teepee pole fell on my head and knocked me unconscious.
My tape kept rolling throughout the whole incident and it's become famous within the CBC.
It's a horrible listen. When my husband first heard it, he turned a pale shade of green, gave me a giant hug and thanked the stars I wasn't more seriously hurt.
Outside of the office, I'm a food fanatic. I write a food blog, love discovering new restaurants and taking cooking courses.
I'm thrilled to be joining the team as one of the new WHYS backup presenters.
As I learned from my time in Louisiana, hearing the stories of people directly affected by events is incredibly powerful. WHYS does this like no other programme.
