Khalid’s broadcasting career began at the BBC as a producer at BBC Radio Leicester. He soon moved into TV and became the youngest presenter of the BBC’s Look North in Leeds, at the age of 24. Whilst at the BBC, he worked on various national current affairs programmes, such as Panorama.
After twelve years with the BBC, he crossed to TVS in 1982 to anchor Coast to Coast from Southampton. He left the programme to produce documentaries in the mid-1980s, but still presented for TVS, fronting the business programme, Enterprise South.
In the early days of TVS, Coast to Coast viewers were treated to regular updates on his puppy, named Coaster by viewers. He was Khalid’s pet, and a regular guest in the studio, though his screen appearances ended when management decided that this sort of Blue Peter-esque escapade wasn’t fitting for such a serious regional news programme.
He is currently Professor of business communications at Southampton University and also runs his own public affairs/media consultancy – The Aziz Corporation.
