Description
It is a journey of an Egyptian announcer that spanned 50 years without losing sight of the historical background of his professional and humanitarian experience. It all began in the Voice of the Arabs in 1965 and included work stations in Yemen before the 1967 setback, directly turning to the Voice of America Radio on the Greek island of Rhodes in 1975, and then to Washington, D.C. in 1977. The book deals with this period from a professional, political and historical perspective, such as the broadcasting environment in the Voice of the Arabs with all its richness and personalities that represent a landmark in the art of Radio. The experience of Yemen in 1967 was also rich in events and characters, during a critical period of modern Egyptian history. The book addresses in its third part the broadcasting work in the vicinity of the Greek island of Rhodes, where a group of Greco- Egyptians were working, after they left the country following the nationalization decrees during the reign of Abdel Nasser. It addresses in its fourth Part the shock move from an island to a continent, when the writer went to Washington in 1977 to become the first Egyptian Television reporter there. The book in its entirety may come near to travel literature, but it is rather a travel in the Media arena in both Egypt and America, with all its professional, political and historical backgrounds.
