Priti Malik

Priti was born and raised in NYC to Indian-born parents. Growing up it was a balanced mix of Bollywood films and the Backstreet Boys. She originally wanted to be a lawyer. But one fine day when she was in high school, Priti decided to pay a visit to the MTV studios to watch a taping of Total Request Live. While watching VJ Hilarie Burton do a few links she realized this was definitely more her vibe! So she decided to go with Broadcast Journalism and never looked back!

Priti’s been working in radio and TV since she was 17. Whether it was a promotions intern for a radio station, working on stories for Diane Sawyer at ABC or running her own morning show at her college radio station, Priti has always kept herself in the industry.

After graduating, Priti came across the Arabian Radio Network here in Dubai and decided to give it a shot. So in 2008, she moved to Dubai to work as a News Presenter for Virgin Radio. Now, she’s the co-host on The Kris Fade Show. We consider doing the news to playing Priti on the Floor an upgrade!
