Maria Memon is the Reporter/Anchor at Geo News, currently hosting 'Meray Mutabiq' and 'Muslims in Ameica' on Geo News. Maria Memon is Lahore based journalist working for Geo Tv Pakistan, an old soul with a young spirit whose got her feet on the ground & head held high. 

The diminutive and poised broadcaster carries herself with an infectious mix of confidence, energy and drive.

A software engineer by profession, Memon took a giant leap of faith when the opportunity to join Geo English as a coordinator for Najam Sethi’s show came, by sending her CV online. She was interviewed and hired. That marked the turning point in Memon’s career. But the project got shelved before it was even launched.  Subsequently, Memon was offered a position as a field reporter for Geo. Reluctant at first because of her inexperience in field reporting, Memon trusted her mentors, whom she gives the most credit for her quick ascent to success, and went ahead with the new job at hand. 

Her hard work and enthusiasm paid off, she received an offer to host her own show and, eventually, made it as a regular news anchor for Geo. Maria has grown by leaps and bounds.

Born to a military family, Memon draws inspiration from the empowered women in her life, particularly her grandmother, who instilled in her the value of education. An avid reader, Memon’s current reading list includes Indian Summer and the works of Manto.

Memon clearly does not back down from any challenge thrown her way. Another challenging aspect of her job is detaching her emotions from the news, but she admits that some news does get to her. She vividly remembers the case of Rimsha Masih, the young girl accused of blasphemy in Islamabad and her subsequent jubilation upon having to break the news that the girl was, in fact, framed by a local mullah. She also felt strongly for Malala and got herself into numerous heated arguments online and in real life over her.

Maria Memon is, indeed, the face of the contemporary media, approachable, relevant and at one with the people.
