Guest Speaker: Gil Tamary, Washington Bureau chief for Israel’s Channel 10 News
Gil Tamary is the Washington bureau chief for Israel’s Channel 10 News, and is a household name in Israel. He has worked for Israel Broadcasting Authority, Israel Public Radio, and as anchor and chief editor of “Good Morning Israel.”
Gil covers a wide range of Middle East issues from the U.S. and conducts exclusive interviews with many dignitaries and political figures, including presidents, secretaries of state, the head of the World Bank and others. His reporting has ranged from the Camp David Accords in 2000, where he conducted an exclusive interview with President Clinton, to the 9/11 story to the Iraq war. During the Bush administration, Gil had exclusive interviews with President Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and many more. Covering President Obama’s election, Gil interviewed (then) Senator Barak Obama about his future policy toward Israel and the Middle East.
In 2006, Gil made media history when he got Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to answer a question he posed at a United Nations press conference. This was historic because it was the only time the Iranian leader—who doesn’t recognize Israel’s right to exist—has ever spoken to an Israeli journalist.
Also known for his reporting on the Israeli economy, Gil used to serve as international editor of Forbes-Israel magazine, economic editor for Israel TV and IDF radio, and was a writer for Globes, Israel’s leading business newspaper.
