Jerusalem, Israel
Orly Halpern is a print journalist, on-air TV and radio reporter, field producer and researcher based in Jerusalem, Israel.
Orly Halpern grew up in Orange County, California and Tucson, Arizona. A visit to the Middle East as a teenager enticed her to return as an adult. Since moving to Jerusalem Read moreand becoming a journalist, her reporting has focused on the Arab-Israeli conflict. But in 2003 she traveled by a string of taxis to Baghdad where she spent a year living in and reporting from Iraq, serving as Baghdad correspondent of Canada's Globe and Mail. (During that time she and a colleague were kidnapped by insurgents near Falluja, but thanks to her knowledge of Arabic and her familiarity with Arab culture she was able to talk their way free.) Since then she has traveled across the Arab and Muslim world to learn and report on its people and politics.

Today Ms. Halpern continues to report from the region as a freelance journalist. Her reports have appeared in many newspapers and magazines and on radio and television. The outlets include TIME magazine, the Washington Post, France24, Euronews, CBC, US News and World Report, Haaretz newspaper (Israel), the Jerusalem Post, Dallas Morning News, San Francisco Chronicle, Christian Science Monitor, McClatchy Newspapers, Hadassah magazine, and Homemakers (Canada). During the Second Lebanon War she reported for US News and was an analyst on Fox News. She has reported from Africa, including Rwanda, Ethiopia, Tunisia, Ghana and Egypt and from Afghanistan, Qatar, Bahrain, Turkey, Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, the Palestinian Territories and Israel.

Uri Blau

Jerusalem, Israel
Twenty years ago, I published my first story for a Jerusalem weekly newspaper. Since then, I
gained knowledge, connections and a deep understanding of covering the news in Israel,
Palestine, U.S. and parts of the world. With my ability to navigate Israel & Palestine, I conducted hard­ hitting Read moreinvestigations which revealed secret money trails of corrupt politicians, recognized tendencies in
social networks, uncovered military wrongdoings and produced breaking news coverage for both
local and international audiences.

My investigative storytelling crossed multiple platforms, from writing for reputable print newspapers
and magazines, such as Haaretz and Harper’s, to digital platforms like ProPublica, Mashable, Quartz and Fusion. As the local field producer of Japanese­ based Fuji TV news for eight years, I coordinated all crews sent to Israel by choosing compelling news topics for coverage, selecting the best filming locations and identifying interviewees. With this responsibility, I produced Fuji’s coverage of the disengagement from Gaza, wars in Lebanon and Gaza, election campaigns, the visit of Japanese Prime Minister in Israel and much more.

Over the years, I also worked as the local producer for some of U.K.’s Channel 4 “Unreported World” documentaries, a PBS’s “Frontline” episode, Morgan Spurlock’s “Where in the World is Osama Bin­-Laden” feature film and more. Radio coverage provided a new challenge during my recent work as fixer and producer for BBC World Service during the Israel’s election period.

During my Nieman Fellowship for Journalism at Harvard University, I researched different models for an investigative news platform, while gaining video editing experience, innovative reporting skills, storytelling abilities, data­ mining and visualization tools. I also participated in a hands ­on, intensive seminar on the future of journalism at MIT’s Media Lab.

Currently based out of D.C., I am available to work in the U.S. and in Israel
