Dini Petty (born January 15, 1945 in Kingston upon Thames, Greater London, England) is a Canadian television and radio host. At 22, wearing a trademark pink jumpsuit and working for Toronto radio station CKEY, she became the first female traffic reporter to pilot her own helicopter. She clocked 5,000 hours as pilot-in-command of a Hughes 300.

Later, at Citytv Toronto, she worked as a writer, reporter and co-anchor, with Gord Martineau, of evening newscast CityPulse at 6. There she hosted an afternoon program, Sweet City Woman. Petty also anchored Citytv's short-lived 5:30 p.m. news and current affairs program CityWide from May 1987 until 1989 when she left for CFTO-TV.

On Citytv's daily talk show CityLine, Petty established herself as one of Canada's foremost television talk show hosts. She left her news anchor position to concentrate on CityLine.

In August and September 2010, Petty returned to guest-host several episodes of Cityline while host, Tracy Moore, was on maternity leave.

In 2016, Petty relaunched a product called Luuup Litter Box, partially through using a Kickstarter platform.

Personal life

In 1980, a documentary camera followed her pregnancy and the birth of her son Nicholas.


Petty has written a children's book, The Queen, the Bear, and the Bumblebee, published in 2000. Joanne Findon (professor of English literature at Trent University, Ontario) described the book as "a charming fable about the value of being yourself and recognizing your own strengths." Publishers Weekly was less flattering: "Despite a bumblebee protagonist, there's little to buzz about in this didactic picture book." In 2014, the book was staged at a theatre at the Banff Centre.
