Born and raised in the capital, Asad joined the BBC London presenting and reporting team in 2002, five years after beginning his career at the BBC. During that time, he was the BBC Scotland Correspondent, a presenter for BBC Breakfast, the News Channel, Breakfast with Frost and Newsnight Scotland.

 

He has travelled widely as a reporter to countries including Sudan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa and Singapore from where he presented London’s winning Olympic bid in 2005. Amongst his other memorable moments, Asad says presenting the first and only live news programme from the top of Nelson’s Column was something he won’t forget.
