Salwa Khan is a video and radio producer, educator, and longtime organic gardener. Khan brings her passion about storytelling, and the power of video and other media, to her students. In addition to her teaching, she currently hosts and produces a radio program/podcast that focuses on all aspects of living in harmony with the Earth.

Her interest in new media, and all forms of visual communication, but especially the use of video, is an outgrowth of her career. Khan began as a broadcast journalist for the NBC television station in Washington, D.C., where she wrote copy for radio and television news programs and produced video pieces and daily local news programs. Khan then worked at the Cable News Network (CNN) in Washington where she was a producer-editor, churning out video news stories which she edited “machine-to-machine”, meaning the editing was done without software.

She went on to become the senior video editor at the PBS station in Washington D.C., for a highly-regarded news program called the NewsHour, which is seen on PBS stations.

Looking for a change of pace from Washington D.C., she and her husband and son moved to Wimberley, Texas. Here, they have their own video production business producing, news, documentary and other video projects for broadcast outlets and for educational and museum clients.

Khan first came to Texas State as a master’s degree student and later went on to get a PhD in adult education. At Texas State, she has taught as an adjunct for OWLS (formerly OCED), for the SJMC and for the Department of Education. 

She currently works on video projects, and on developing her interview-style radio program/podcast which is called Mothering EarthMothering Earth is a podcast on iTunes and is heard on Wimberley Valley Radio.
