He began his career as a young vibrant investigative reporter for Karachi's Daily News newspapers in 1982, Mr. Kamran Khan almost immediately attracted the attention of top international newspapers and by 1985, he was already reporting from Pakistan for a top British newspaper, The Sunday Times, and a top U.S. newspaper, The Washington Post, simultaneously. However, He had been associated with Jang Group for the last 32 years which he mentioned in his last farewell message as well.

In 1998, he became internationally and publicly known for his live coverage of nation's first publicly conducted nuclear tests: Chagai-I. During this time, he conducted several interviews with Pakistani scientists involved in this programme.

Daniel Pearl
In early 2000s, he became publicly known for his coverage and investigative reports on the Daniel Pearl, an American Jew who was kidnapped and killed by al-Qaeda operatives. He was the first journalist to publish his report on ISI intelligence efforts to link India to the kidnapping by raising the possibility that Asra Nomani was in fact a "spy for India", claiming that she was Daniel Pearl's "full-time assistant," identifying her as an "Indian journalist". According to his report, Nomani was an NRI, having born in India and was raised as a Muslim in the United States since the age of 4. Nomani was an American Muslim who holds the US passport and also noted that it was Daniel Pearl who brought her to Karachi to work with him.

He also raised questions about Daniel Pearl's suspicious travel to Karachi from Mumbai, where he was originally based, saying "ISI officials were so intrigued as to why an American newspaper reporter based in Bombay would also establish a full-time residence in Karachi." Writing an opinion in the story, he wrote that "anyone familiar with the fractured relations between Pakistan and India can understand how this sort of characterization could tarnish Daniel Pearl's reputation in Pakistan and weaken public outrage about his brutal killing, a goal some ISI officials might have wanted.

The widow of kidnapped and murdered journalist Daniel Pearl, Mariane Pearl, wrote in in her memoir A Mighty Heart, and singled out Kamran Khan for first writing the story that identified Daniel Pearl as a Jewish reporter. Revealing this information was equivalent to a "death sentence" in Pakistan, according to the memoir.
