Background:
Aamir Ghauri is a London-based journalist of Pakistani origin. From April to August 2008, he was the Director News, Dunya TV, an embryonic news channel in Pakistan. Previously, he was the European Head of News and Current Affairs for Geo TV - Pakistan's most-watched satellite channel worldwide. Before joining Geo in March 2005, he worked for both Pakistani and international news media including the BBC. Ghauri has an MSc in International Politics Near & Middle East and Modern South Asia from the London University's School of Oriental and African Studies. He also briefly practiced law in Pakistan after graduating from the Punjab University Law College in Lahore. He left law for journalism in the late 1980s
Ghauri was born in Jhelum, Pakistan, where his father was posted as a civil servant. He now lives in London with his wife, Fustina and three children, Omar, Ali and Asr.
Career:
Aamir Ghauri started his professional career as an attorney-at-law with Ashtar Ali & Associates in 1986 in Lahore, Pakistan. A couple of years later he left law and joined The Nation, a Lahore-based English-language daily at a time when journalism was a no-no profession for most of the university graduates. He left The Nation for a bolder newspaper, The Frontier Post and worked on the News Desk for two years. In September 1990, Ghauri joined the founding team that launched Pakistani's first multi-edition English-language newspaper, The News International. He worked as the paper's news editor and then deputy editor. He was transferred to London in 1998 as the newspaper's first foreign correspondent. During this period, he broke many stories on Pakistan's leading politicians' foreign assets, properties and interests. In September 2001, just ten days before 9/11, Ghauri left The News for ARY Digital, a UK-based satellite television channel as its first Head of News and Current Affairs. In the only 60 days that he worked for the channel, Ghauri visualized, directed and fronted ARY Digital's most popular current affairs program - Views on News. In November 2001, he joined BBC Asian Network as a broadcaster. He also freelanced for Prime TV and presented a daily live current affairs program - The World Today - for over two years.
Ghauri is currently working on his book on Pakistan. He regularly appears on BBC, CNN, Sky and Aljazeera English as a political commentator.
Written Work:
Aamir Ghauri authored The Divine Destruction published by XenosUK, a pictorial commentary on the devastating South Asian earthquake in October 2005. His poems have been published in Pakistan and abroad including in the International Society of Poets' Voices on the Wind.
