For those around the Lower Mainland, and world, who listen to the radio, the name Nira Arora will be a familiar one. Arora has been a part of The Beat 94.5 FM since 2002. Recognized for her extraordinary achievements within an industry as a media personality, Arora has a long list of achievements and endeavours that demonstrate her dedication to not only her industry but also her community. Having worked within TV and radio for more than a decade, Arora has worked with Global, City TV, Shaw and CTV to name a few. She has been nominated twice for the BCAB Awards as Broadcast Performer of Tomorrow and Broadcast Performer of the Year. Arora has also been voted numerous times in TV Week Magazine, The Georgia Straight and the West Ender for favourite radio personality and favourite radio show. “What a humbling experience,” Arora said of being honoured as Industry Marvel. “ I was so proud of the remarkable achievements of every winner that night – made me feel so proud of our whole community.” Arora's strong connection to the community can be seen throughout her volunteer efforts that reach a large handful of organizations including the Minerva Foundation, the Indo Canadian Students Association and the Vancouver Food Bank, among so many others. Passion is not something Arora lacks and it’s what she centers her advice around.
