Speculated to be PTI chief Imran Khan’s newlywed, Reham Khan, a former BBC journalist who is a current affairs anchor for Dawn News, has been under heavy media scrutiny for the past few weeks. We did a little digging of our own to find out more about the likely first lady of ‘Naya Pakistan’.
Here’s what we found:
Reham’s first husband was a psychologist known as Ejaj Rehman. They have three kids: Sahir, Ridha and Inaya, according to India Today.
Reham was born in Libya in 1973 and did her Bachelors in education and postgraduate in Sociology.
While doing her postgraduate in Broadcast Journalism at North Lindsay College, Rahem was offered a job at LegalTV in May 2006.
In 2008, the 41-year-old took up the position of broadcast journalist on BBC South. She went on to spend four-and-a-half years at the BBC and was one of the few presenters who not only retained her position but was also promoted to a senior broadcast journalist role despite the cutbacks BBC underwent with its Delivering Quality First campaign.
Despite that, Reham resigned to move to Pakistan to cover the May 2013 general elections.
Starting her career in media in the country with NewsOne in January 2013, she moved to AAJ TV. She also briefly took up a position with PTV but has now moved to Dawn News.
It’s tough to speculate where and how the two met but PTI chief Imran Khan confirmed last night he would soon be giving good news to the nation about his marriage so we will just have till then for the niceties.
“Marriage is not a crime. I will share good news with the nation next week,” Imran said, while addressing the media at his residence in Bani Gala.
