I’m a PBS NewsHour journalist. Ask me anything!
Hi - I'm Amna Nawaz, a national correspondent at PBS NewsHour. Prior to joining the NewsHour in April 2018, I was an anchor and correspondent at ABC News, and for a decade before, at NBC in a variety of roles including the network's Islamabad correspondent/bureau chief. I've reported on the dangers of drinking while pregnant, police shootings of unarmed black men, our planet’s growing plastic pollution problem, the confirmation hearings of Brett Kavanaugh, and just last month, interviewed President Erdogan of Turkey. Ask me anything!
This AMA is part of r/IAmA’s “Spotlight on Journalism” project which aims to shine a light on the state of journalism and press freedom in 2018. Join us for a new AMA every day in October.
UPDATE: 12:20p and I'm logging off. Thanks for your questions! Tweet me with those music suggestions (@IamAmnaNawaz)!
