Maya Trabulsi is the Saturday morning news anchor and producer for KPBS Radio. She also serves as a fill-in anchor for KPBS Radio and TV during the weekdays.

The trajectory of Maya's life has been anything but ordinary; she was born in Beirut during turbulent times and grew up in Dubai and London. These were formative experiences for her, instilling a desire to see what the world had to offer on a global scale. She attended Regent's University London and moved to the U.S. to complete her B.A. in media communications from Webster University in St. Louis., with a minor in women’s studies.

Maya earned her M.A. in film, television, and new media from San Diego State University while working as a non-linear editor for Channel 4 San Diego. She went on to anchor and report for a CNN affiliate in Riverside County and now continues to work as an independent on-camera host, scriptwriter, and voiceover artist.

Maya has received an Emmy® Award for reporting and several San Diego Press Club honors.
