Lucy van Oldenbarneveld

Lucy van Oldenbarneveld is a veteran journalist with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation who is currently the Friday host and field reporter for Ottawa Morning, the capital's number one morning radio show on CBC Radio One 91.5.

She has worked in the Netherlands, China, and as a host, producer and reporter with Deutsche Welle World Service Radio based in Cologne, Germany. While there she worked on a number of high-profile stories, including pieces on the Iraqi hostages in Berlin, the Al-Qaeda cells in Hamburg, an in-depth look at the gun culture in Germany, and the floods that ravaged
central Europe in the summer of 2002.

She was also Deutsche Welle's radio and television correspondent at the G8 summit in Kananaskis.

Previously, she worked for three years with CBC Radio in the Yukon as the host/producer of THE LATE EDITION, the afternoon show in Whitehorse. She has also worked as a reporter and lineup editor.

Originally from Hamilton, Ontario, Lucy has a degree in Political Studies from Queen’s University. She was also part of a comedy troupe that wrote and produced a two-hour live show of satire and music.

She speaks English, Dutch and what she calls "workable" German.

Hobbies include skiing and canoeing, and she ran the Seattle marathon in 2000. In the summer of 2003 Lucy took a leave of absence to travel to Africa to teach a radio skills course to people who work in the Afrinet radio network. That work took her to Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya.

In Rwanda, Lucy will be teaching a third-year Broadcasting course at the National University of Rwanda during April and May. Her partner Andy Clarke will also be teaching in Butare with the Rwanda Initiative.
