Viewers in Pakistan can now experience a slice of life in America, with the premiere of a dynamic new VOA program that follows show host Sana Mirza as she gets to know the country.
“I just moved here myself, so I’m seeing things with fresh eyes,” says Sana, one of Pakistan’s most popular television newscasters. “I want the program to paint a picture of what life is really like in the United States.”
The half-hour show, called Sana. A Pakistani, airs Monday through Friday at 6:30 in the evening on Pakistan’s Express News cable channel.
The first program focused on Washington D.C. and included a visit to a mosque, the White House, and an aid organization that provides free meals to the homeless. Tuesday, Sana speaks with well-known actress Reema Khan and her new husband, who live just outside Washington.
本栏目的第一个节目聚焦在华盛顿特区，具体内容有参观清真寺、白宫，还有一个为流离失所的人提供免费餐饮的援助组织。星期二，Sana与著名的女演员Reema Khan 还有她住在华盛顿郊外的丈夫进行了交谈。

Sana says she plans to travel around the country so she can show viewers how people really live, including the many Pakistani-Americans that have moved to the United States.
I want to be “an ambassador to the Pakistani people, not the government, and I want the show to be like a bridge between the two cultures,” Mirza says. “The program will include stories from people from all walks of life, from struggling taxi drivers and mechanics to the successful ‘high profile people.’”
VOA Urdu Service Chief Faiz Rahman says, “The new show is more in tune with the demands of our audiences in Pakistan and the diaspora. It’s engaging, interactive, and offers viewers something they can’t get elsewhere.”
VOA reaches its audience in Pakistan on radio, TV, online and on mobile.
