Priya Ganapathy

With a career spanning 17 years in diverse media – print, television, film, Internet, radio and theatre, Priya Ganapathy dons many hats as a writer, anchor and versatile voice-artiste. She is a widely published writer, who has contributed to books, articles and columns in leading newspapers and magazines. Popular as the quirky radio icons ‘Lingo Leela’ (Emvie Award-winning Radio campaign) and ‘Sister Stella’, Priya was a radio jockey hosting music shows like The Late Show, The Retro Show on RadioCity and Playback on Radio Indigo. Priya has also acted in National Award-winning English Film Stumble and scripted the docu-film Rockumentary, which won two international Golden Aster awards, besides four films for Andaman Tourism. She was adjudged one of Bangalore’s Top 32 Woman Achievers.

A gypsy at heart, Priya enjoys travelling to new places, discovering people and telling their stories. From footprints in Ladakh’s lunar landscape to Kanyakumari’s sands, Priya’s itchy feet have taken her across the length and breadth of the country and abroad. Stark World publications roped in her expertise as Consulting Editor and contributor to the coffee-table book cum encyclopedia StarkWorld Bengaluru-Karnataka. She also co-authored the Michelin Green Guide Chennai & Tamil Nadu which was launched recently.
