Former Director General of Radio Pakistan and Managing director of PTV, Agha Nasir, breathed his last on Tuesday morning in Islamabad at 79 years of age. Nasir started his broadcasting career from Radio Pakistan in 1955 and gained popularity as a producer, playwright and a writer with the passage of time. He eventually joined television and attained immense success in the medium.

After graduating from Karachi University, Nasir went on to join Radio Pakistan where he attained ten years of broadcasting experience before switching to television. Nasir was often referred as the “Encyclopedia” of the broadcast medium because he worked in radio for such a long time so consequently his knowledge regarding broadcasting was immense.

Writing was something he always loved, he was writing plays for Radio Pakistan even before he officially joined the radio station. Nasir initially joined PTV as a Programme producer, but he left the state channel as the Managing Director.
