Maya Trabulsi is an Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist who anchors KPBS Evening Edition.

Maya grew up in the United Kingdom and came to San Diego after completing her BA in media communications with a minor degree in women’s studies from Webster University. While earning her master’s degree in television, film, and new media studies from San Diego State University, she worked for Channel 4 San Diego as a video editor on long-format news and sports magazine shows. Maya later joined a CNN-affiliated station in Riverside County, where she produced and covered local news as an evening news anchor and reporter.

Maya’s work has been recognized with first place awards for reporting and editing from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, the Society of Professional Journalists, and the San Diego Press Club. In 2017, Maya’s report on the DEA’s planned ban of a controversial supplement, which was titled “Kratom: Healing Herb or Dangerous Drug?”, won six awards, including two Golden Mic awards from the Radio and Television News Association of Southern California. She now serves on the NATAS-Pacific Southwest Board of Governors.
