Tune in for another edition of ‘Sporting mensches,’ a series in which host Laragh Widdess interviews people who’ve made an outstanding contribution to sport in Israel – whether on the field, the pitch, the court, or behind the mic.
Israel’s legendary sportscaster and former TLV1 sports presenter, Ari Louis, joins Laragh in the studio to explain what it’s like reporting on team sports in a country that largely sidelines them. He also describes the connection between sport and religion, and why he’s no longer so emotional about sport.
Plus there’s a special Passover segment at the end of the show, in which Ari and Laragh talk about sportsmen who left their countries of origin to settle and ply their trade in The Promised Land.
