National Political Correspondent for NPR; Political Reporter

Asma Khalid is a political correspondent covering the 2020 presidential campaign. She is also a co-host of the NPR Politics podcast.

Before joining NPR's political team, Khalid helped launch a new team for Boston's NPR station WBUR, where she reported on business, technology and the future of work. During her time at WBUR, Khalid also reported on politics.

Khalid reported on a range of stories over the years — including the 2016 presidential campaign, the Boston Marathon bombings and the trial of James "Whitey" Bulger.

Khalid got her start in journalism in her home state of Indiana, but was introduced to radio through an internship at BBC Newshour in London during graduate school. For a few years after college, she was a producer for NPR's Morning Edition.
