I once rapped on stage during a concert in Prague and was offered a feature on an album.
Omar is a Multimedia Journalist for Circa and typically reports live from the field. He previously worked as a producer and reporter in Washington D.C. for 5+ years working in news and sports. During his time with WJLA and WUSA, Omar was churning out content for the web, while also contributing to award winning broadcasts. You may have seen him on shows like SportsTalk or Game On.
While working in the district, Omar has covered a number of big stories including two presidential inaugurations, the Navy Yard Shooting, and the government shutdown.
He’s also covered playoff pushes by the Washington Wizards, Washington Redskins, and Washington Capitals. Plus, he was the first reporter to get an exclusive with now NFL star Stefon Diggs while he was a freshman at the University of Maryland.
Omar was born and raised in the D.C. area. He grew up in Prince George’s County and received his bachelor’s for the University of Maryland.
When he’s not working on breaking a story, you can catch Omar playing basketball or singing karaoke at a bar near you.
