Has Al-Jazeera English presenter Imran Garda moved to Washington? Apparently. According to his official biography, he is now listed as a U.S. anchor and presents from Washington “where he is now based.” A bit of irony here; Garda is 28 years old and is considered one of the youngest news anchors in the world. Mishal Husain of the BBC moved to Washington when she was 29 and was an instant hit with viewers. Will Garda follow in Husain’s footsteps? Time will tell, but we think he will.
12/16/2011 Update: Mr. Garda is currently with the programmes department at AJE. He can be seen presenting The Stream.
