Asma Khalid

Asma Khalid is a seasoned political reporter and the leading reporter of WBUR’s BostonomiX team, which investigates business and innovation in the city. Khalid refers to herself as a “recovering NPR politics reporter”; she spent the last two years covering the 2016 election for NPR, following the campaigns across the country. She was also one of the reporters that started the NPR Politics podcast. Although she no longer covers politics, she has continued to speak and write about her experience covering the election, particularly the Trump campaign, as a Muslim woman. Earlier in her career, Khalid reported extensively on the Boston Marathon Bombing and the trial of James “Whitey” Bulger.
