He joined PBS NewsHour in 2009 as an online and on-air correspondent and was responsible for guiding the development of the NewsHour’s Web presence and relationship to local public media.

He is also the host of the national public television series SciTech Now. Since March 2020 he has served as the host and executive producer for Take on Fake, a webby award-winning where he debunks ” claims you’ve seen or shared online to show you how to stay informed. We peek into the Internet rabbit hole of misinformation, show you how the falsehood spread and help you become more informed consumers in the process.”

He began his career in journalism as a radio DJ for KNHC in high school. KNHC was a radio station for Nathan Hale High School in Seattle and had a fully-powered, 30,000 watt stereo station for high school kids to run.

He said he was inspired to join television as they was lack of South Asian representation on the air as at the time, the most famous South Asian was Apu from The Simpsons. He also noticed that news stories often got fundamentals about Indian-American society, Hinduism, and India-Pakistan relations wrong, and that if they didn’t have a seat at the table, we couldn’t make editorial decisions.

During his time in college, he started taking internships at local TV stations in Seattle. He said he had to ” muscle my way into one during my sophomore year, because the internship was primarily reserved for seniors.” He made a pitch and asked to be given 10 days and he did well as he was reserved.
