PTV’s Shaista Zaid delivers last bulletin after 43 years

Eversince I was a child, I can recall her face in the evenings when there was just PTV and later STN. I am sure a generation can recall her face seeing on PTV English Bulletin @ 7pm everyday

A little bio of Shaista Zaid, the legend

There were people on twitter recalling her and expressing sorrow on her retirement news

So sad that Shaista Zaid is retiring. She is the face that launched a thousand Kashmir reports, Eid moons and coups. End of an era. #PTV

It was an honor to watch Shaista Zaid's last bulletin. Her grace and elegance unmatched for those 43 years when she remained on-air.
