ISLAMABAD—The Voice of America has promoted its Afghanistan and Pakistan Bureau Chief, Ayesha Tanzeem, as South and Central Asia Division Director, according to an announcement by the VOA Public Relations.
The position is the highest in the US media held by any Pakistani American female journalist.
“Ayesha Tanzeem exemplifies the courage and journalistic skill that is a hallmark of VOA’s overseas correspondents,” said Acting VOA Director Yolanda LÏŒpez. “Her vast in-depth experience of the region, her leadership skills, as well as her deep knowledge of the audience needs, makes her uniquely positioned to guide the South and Central Asia Division in this critical time.”
Being a native of Pakistan, she has traveled extensively throughout Afghanistan and Pakistan, covering politics, governance, militancy, terrorism, and human rights, particularly women and minority rights.
Her reporting that uncovered horrific and tragic incidents related to the suffering of the Afghan people earned her the David Burke award for Courage in Journalism in 2016.
Her new assignment will bring her back from Islamabad to the VOA headquarters in Washington, D.C.
