In July 2009, Naveen started writing with the blog section of Dawn’s website and soon after for The Huffington Post.
The idea behind converging the two media – new and mainstream – is to give a voice to the liberal, educated and otherwise, unheard Pakistanis. The more selfish reason is that she loves it!
More recently, she was invited on a panel of Pakistan’s top seven journalists to interview the visiting US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
Prior to DawnNews, Naveen worked from 2002 – 05 as Producer Pakistan of NBC News. She started off as a fixer and worked her way up to bureau chief. Here she worked on news stories for Nightly News and Today show, conducted on-camera interviews, reported breaking news for MSNBC, wrote stories for MSNBC.com, and managed the Islamabad bureau. She assisted in the coordination of two interviews with General Pervez Musharraf – one for Tom Brokaw
