PROFESSIONAL PROFILE
ANISA MEHDI

Anisa Mehdi is executive producer for the PBS FRONTLINE two-hour special, “Muslims,” which premiered nationwide on May 9, 2002. “Muslims” explores the cultural and political diversity of Muslims worldwide, through the lives of individuals in Turkey, Iran, Malaysia, Egypt, Senegal and the United States. The program and the ensuing outreach campaign intend to expand and challenge Americans’ understanding of Islam and Muslims. Ms. Mehdi is also producer/writer of four programs for ABC News Nightline on the subject of Muslims, Islam and the West. These programs are productions of The Independent Production Fund.

In addition to television documentaries, Ms. Mehdi is reporting and producing a radio series called “Living Islam,” to be broadcast on National Public Radio. She is focusing on American Muslims under the age of 30. “Living Islam” is produced by Independent Broadcasting Associates.

For several seasons Anisa Mehdi was a contributing correspondent to PBS’s “Religion and Ethics News Weekly.” Her series of reports on the pilgrimage to Mecca earned a prize in the 1998 International Film and Video Festival. Mehdi is the first American woman to report on the Hajj from Mecca for US television. She was one of the first reporters to cover the blossoming American Muslim political movement.

Mehdi’s commentaries and articles have appeared in the San Jose Mercury News, the Newark Star-Ledger, on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” on Beliefnet.com, and on I-views.com.

Prior to “Muslims,” Ms. Mehdi was Arts and Culture Correspondent for the New Jersey Network News (PBS). Her decade-long coverage of the creation of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark won many awards in enterprise and deadline reporting. Her series on breastfeeding was nominated for an Emmy.

Ms. Mehdi’s career began as a news writer and associate producer at WBZ-TV in Boston. Later she moved to CBS News in New York where she worked on the foreign desk for the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather, and as an associate producer for the acclaimed documentary series “CBS Reports,” and for “60 Minutes.”

Anisa Mehdi is an avid flutist who volunteers with the Livingston Symphony Orchestra. She serves on the Board of Directors of Music for All Seasons, on the Advisory Council for the World Festival at the Newark-based New Jersey Performing Arts Center, and on the Board of Trustees of The Fraentzel Foundation, in Maplewood, NJ.
