Ayesha Khan is a DMV native and is thrilled to be back in her hometown where she has been freelancing with FOX 5 D.C since 2019. She is a graduate of Quince Orchard High School and the American University.
Ayesha spent time bouncing around the country, honing her journalistic skills as a multi-media reporter and anchor in Myrtle Beach, SC, Salisbury, Md. and St. Louis Mo.
Having been given the opportunity to be part of a station in her own hometown has provided her the advantage to hit the ground running. She is already familiar with the communities where she grew up, attended school and university in and has along the way, made life-long friends.
These are friends and family members whom she says are now turning into incredible sources of information that have helped her beat the competition by reporting on exclusive and often lead stories.
Ayesha also recently began sharing her experience and fight against stage 3 breast cancer. She was diagnosed with the disease in July 2021. Ayesha has been chronicling her journey in the Fox 5 series, ‘Cancer: Fight over Fear’ with hopes of providing helpful information to her community.
