David speaks with Saad Mohseni, arguably Afghanistan’s most successful media entrepreneur. Mohseni moved back to his native Afghanistan from Australia in 2002 to establish the Moby Group, Afghanistan’s largest media company with interests in television, radio, print, production, online news services, directories, IT&T, and retail. Perhaps most famously, Mohseni’s television network is responsible for “Afghanistan Idol,” the Afghanistani version of the hugely successful reality television series. A documentary following the 3rd season of “Afghanistan Idol” is playing on HBO with the title Afghan Star.
