Malikha Mallette is an American radio personality, voice-over artist and occasional actress. She is most known for her work at New York radio station Power 105, where she currently hosts in the afternoons.

Malikha's interest in radio came as a result of meeting with the program director of a radio station. Malikha started her career as a promotions intern at WVEE-FM, "V-103" in Atlanta, and within a few months, was hired for an on-air overnight shift. Mallette, a Queens native,[1] earned the internship through her alma mater, Spelman College,[1] where she eventually majored in English.[2]

She soon moved from her overnight shift in Atlanta to middays at "X-105."' in Baltimore, MD. Malikha also worked on air at WPGC-FM in Washington D.C. before starting at Power 105 in 2003. She did the weekend overnight shifts and substituted for other weekday DJs.[1] In August 2008, Mallette became the station's afternoon host[1] of the Malikha Mallette Movement.[3] After The Ed Lover morning show ended, Malikha got promoted to the morning show in December 2009, while the newly hired DJ Envy replaced her in the afternoons.[4]

On December 6, 2010, Mallette moved back to the afternoons while DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God began hosting the morning show on Power 105 as "The Breakfast Club".

Malikha was the New York correspondent for British export, CD USA, a music series that only aired on DirecTV ’s channel 101.[5] Her acting credits include playing a reporter on One Life to Live.[6] She has a small part in the film Cadillac Records.[6]
