Samia Khan likes to talk. A lot. In fact, it's why she pursued a career where you get paid to do just that (and upset her parents
by not doing medicine.)
Born and raised in Fresno, CA, Samia started her career at the age of 11 as a member of the ABC educational show "The Idea Factory" - where she did things like take apart alarms and locks. Everything about being in a studio and on a set fascinated her...and so she knew that her life goal was to get to Los Angeles (because there are only so many shows produced in Fresno.)
Samia received a degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Southern California, then worked as a local news reporter for ABC stations in both Massachusetts and Bakersfield before returning to Los Angeles (the weather is better here.)
The former TV news reporter and now entertainment personality discovered her conversational skill set when interviewing celebs on the red carpet, backstage at TV show sets and concerts, and more for the TV Guide Network. She started humorously documenting some of her favorite encounters in a blog called KHANversations (not to name drop but uh, check it out - there are stories on everyone from Kobe Bryant to Miley Cyrus to Snooki to Brian Williams to Jerry Seinfeld to... wait, I guess that is name dropping.)
On the day-to-day, Samia can be found hosting a tech show called "SGNL" for Sony and Revision3, covering gadgets, entertainment, and more - reaching hundreds of thousands of Sony followers online - as well as podcasting, blogging, vlogging, Tweeting, Instagramming... if it involves the Internet, Samia is probably using it to communicate something.
To keep updated on all of Samia's adventures, and get a sense of her sarcasm, you can check out her blog at http://www.khanversations.com and and follow her on twitter at @SamiaKhan (her iPhone is always in hand, ready to go in case a good Tweet comes to mind.)
When she's not busy tweeting or stalking friends on Facebook, you'll likely find her singing along to the latest Taylor Swift song, dropping nostalgic references to all things 90s (from the NBA to Super Nintendo), rockin accessories that she refers to as "swag", or befriending strangers (her grade school teachers may have reprimanded her for talking in class... however, she views those days as "cultivating her craft.")
