Pakistani Media Magnate Among 25 Asian Stars
Mir Shakil-Ur-Rahman is no stranger to the news business. When he was a child, he spent every lunch break from school at his father’s newspaper office, learning the ropes. He was lucky. Dad had founded and built up a major print media group. When Rahman took over, he extended the group’s reach into electronic media. Now, at 47, he’s one of Pakistan’s biggest media magnates as founder of GEO TV, the country’s most-watched satellite news channel.
