Hi I’m Anam, founder of The NewsRun, a free daily email newsletter that provides short and simple summaries of Pakistan’s top news. I apply my background in writing, research and communications to churn out newsletters for my subscribers. I like to stay informed and learn new things every day, which is why a career in media was always my ultimate goal.
I’ve travelled back and forth between the US and Pakistan for most of my life. A busy schedule and the geographic distance made it harder for me to keep up with Pakistan’s hectic news cycle. I knew I wasn’t the only Pakistani who felt that way. Now that people are bombarded with information around the clock, I asked myself one question “how can I make the news more efficient, reliable and less tiring?” That’s when I decided to launch The NewsRun.
My goal is to help Pakistanis around the world keep up with a cluttered news cycle. The NewsRun is a one-stop-shop for people who want to cut through the noise and stay informed.
Firstly, we research the news by digging through local and international publications. Secondly, we pull out key points you need to know. Thirdly, and most importantly, we condense each news topic into a quick summary. As a result, subscribers wake up to digestible break downs of major headlines. In other words, you only need 5 minutes or less to read the day’s biggest stories!
