Join The Second Floor (T2F) for an interactive session with multimedia journalist, Wajahat S Khan, on reporting from the frontlines of wars and military operations.
Wajahat is the only Pakistani reporter to be embedded with the Pakistan Army as well as with US/NATO/ISAF forces in Afghanistan. He will share his experiences of reporting from conflict areas and on what doesn’t get reported and why.
Wajahat S Khan reports for NBC News from Islamabad. He also provides expertise to CNN, contributes alternative-media reportage to San Francisco-based Link TV and anchors a popular interview series on Aaj TV. He was recently nominated as the first Pakistani Fellow at the Shorenstein Center for the Press, Politics and Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. He has previously worked with Dawn News and Geo News.
Mind Your Media is a project of the Pakistan Coalition of Ethical Journalism and PeaceNiche. The initiative’s debate and lecture series will bring together decision makers at top news organizations, journalists and activists to explore the media landscape and the ethical challenges faced by the news media in Pakistan.
