Veteran Baltimore newsman Sunni Khalid, who was fired in March by WYPR radio, started work Tuesday as an assignment editor at WMAR (Channel 2), he said.

Khalid, a former Baltimore Sun and NPR staffer, was the first newsroom employee hired by the city's public radio station.

He had been on probation at WYPR for comments he posted on Facebook. It later was alleged that he made an obscene gesture toward another journalist who was visiting the public radio station.

Khalid and WYPR declined comment on his dismissal.
