Media career

Yonit Levi is currently the chief news anchor of the flagship bulletin simulcast on Keshet 12 and Reshet 13, produced by Israel Television News Company (whose bulletins were broadcast on Channel 2 until October 2017). After finishing her army service as foreign news editor for the Army Radio (Galei Tzahal, IDF Radio), Levi joined Israel Television News Company in 1998. In 2002, the former anchors Ya'akov Eilon and Miki Haimovich moved to Channel 10, and at age 25, Levi was chosen as the anchor of Channel 2's prime time news program.[1] A few years later, when her co-anchor resigned, she became the first woman in Israel to be appointed the sole anchor position of a prime-time newscast on a commercial channel. She has also served as the channel's field reporter for such international stories as the Japan tsunami disaster, the U.S. elections and wars in Gaza. Under Levi, the prime time news on Channel 2 remained the most watched Israeli daily program.

In January 2008, Levi conducted an interview with U.S. President George W. Bush at the White House.[2] In July 2010, Levi interviewed U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House.[3][4]

In 2015, Levi gave a rare interview to American journalist Charlie Rose of PBS, expressing personal opinions on Israeli current events.[5]
