About Said Nazir Afridi

A working journalist from the Federally Administered Tribal Area (FATA) of Pakistan, Said Nazir Afridi serves as the Station Manager for Radio Khyber, the first ever news channel in FATA, based in the tribal region of Jamrud in the Khyber Agency, a high risk area known to be a hot-bed for militant activity. Through Khyber Radio, Said has brought awareness and a first-hand perspective of the people from that fragile region. In 2008, he introduced female reporters to Khyber Radio, and despite threats to his life, has continued to cover sensitive issues such as militancy and the war on terror. He is currently working on developing the Tribal News Network, which will focus on the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and FATA, and bring forward, to other Pakistanis, the untold stories of life and people in that region through radio stations and a magazine, and internet technology.
