Thursday Morning Man: Ahmed Shihab-Eldin!
Today’s very handsome Morning Man is a most accomplished 29 year old.
He’s Ahmed Shihab-Eldin and he’s a host and producer for HuffPost Live. I caught one of his reports yesterday and was quickly smitten.
Ahmed is a graduate of Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and speaks German, English, Arabic and French. He spent his childhood living between Kuwait, Egypt, California and Austria.
His past jobs include being a news producer with the New York Times, working in Doha with the international 24-hour news channel Al Jazeera English, working as a multimedia producer on PBS’s documentary series Wide Angle and as a freelance reporter, reporting from across the United States and, most notably, around the Arab world including Lebanon, the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Egypt and Jordan.
In 2011, Ahmed created, produced and co-hosted Al Jazeera English’s Emmy-nominated social media show, The Stream.
