USA Networks Bigwig Russ Jones -- in Israel to Serve as a 'Story-Teller'10 March 2023
Russ Jones, Senior Vice President of News Operations for the USA Radio Networks, joins VOI's Josh Hasten in-studio for an exclusive interview on this, his fifth trip to the Jewish state. Jones says that his goal is to serve as a "story-teller," filling in his audience on how Israelis are making immeasurable contributions to the world community in various fields, from scientific innovations to the latest in high-tech advancements. He also says that the stories of "real life" in Israel are often left out of the narrative. His mission is to fill that void.
Then, Knesset insider Jeremy Saltan joins Josh to give the latest low-down in the run-up to the Israeli elections next week. He talks about the ramifications of Balad MK Haneen Zoabi, an Arab-Israeli and an anti-Zionist, possibly endorsing Zionist Union party leader MK Isaac Herzog for prime minister. Is PM Benjamin Netanyahu in trouble?
