JERUSALEM, ISRAEL – Joel C. Rosenberg, co-founder of Near East Media (NEM) and Editor-in-Chief of ALL ISRAEL NEWS and ALL ARAB NEWS, today announced the hiring of Tom Tradup to serve as contributing editor.
In addition to coaching editors and writers, Tradup will write weekly columns about Israel, the Arab/Muslim world, U.S. policy in the Middle East, as well as about the life of Christ followers in the region and the challenges facing the Church here in Israel.
He will also serve as an advisor to NEM’s senior management on how best to further expand the reach and influence of these digital platforms within the Evangelical community and the broader media world.
Tradup has long served as vice president of News & Talk Programming for the Salem Radio Network and SRN News, the #1 Christian radio news network in the United States.
He will continue his work for Salem while serving NEM part-time.
“I could not be more thrilled that Tom Tradup has agreed to help ALL ISRAEL NEWS publish more great content and dramatically expand our traffic, reach, and influence,” said Rosenberg, who co-founded Near East Media in 2020 with Joseph Magen, who serves as chief operating officer and managing editor.
“Tom’s strong Christian faith, love for Israel and her neighbors, and vast experience in helping Christian and conservative media organizations grow their traffic and impact is very impressive,” Rosenberg noted.
“We’ve found the right man at the right time.”
“I’m honored to work with Joel Rosenberg and his awesome team,” Tradup said. “Given that they only launched on Sept. 1, 2020, I’m astonished by just how much they’ve accomplished.
“ALL ISRAEL NEWS is breaking stories that are getting picked up by much larger American and Israeli news outlets,” Tradup noted.
“They’re getting exclusive interviews with the most powerful leaders in Israel and the Arab world. They’re providing the best daily online coverage of what’s happening with Christians in Israel and the broader Middle East. TBN loves its work and has created a primetime TV show with Joel as anchor and executive producer. And Joel is being interviewed by Fox News, Newsmax, The Jerusalem Post, and so many other major media outlets because of his expertise and unique perspective on the region.”
“Clearly, the Lord is doing something very special here,” Tradup added.
“At this pivotal moment in history, I’m really looking forward to helping Joel and his colleagues build on this successful foundation and create exciting new content that educates Evangelical Christians about what’s happening in Israel and the region from a distinctly biblical worldview.”
