Asma Khalid is WBUR’s newest reporter. She came to Boston via Washington, D.C., where she was a producer for National Public Radio’s flagship show Morning Edition.
Before WBUR, Asma also worked as a freelancer, reporting stories for NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered. She’s also reported for WUNC in Raleigh/Durham and WAMU in Washington, D.C.
In 2010, Asma traveled to Pakistan to work as an independent reporter. And, in the aftermath of Osama bin Laden’s death, she joined NPR’s Steve Inskeep to lead Morning Edition’s coverage from the region.
Asma has a master’s in Middle East Studies and speaks Arabic and Urdu.
