Who is Ya'akov Eilon?

Ya'akov Eilon is an Israeli television presenter. Alongside Miki Haimovich, he was the anchor of Channel 10 news.

Born Ya'akov Pijade in 1961, in 1993 Eilon and Haimovich became the first news anchors on the new commercial Channel 2, until moving to Channel 10 in 2002.

In February 2012, Eilon sent his resignation to Channel 10 CEO Uri Rozen via email. Eilon and Haimovich weathered the economic storms that have frequently rocked Channel 10, but Eilonamong other highly paid staff members – did not get his January salary on time and was subsequently informed that the channel’s management would be instituting a 15-percent pay cut among employees in the higher wage bracket. It is believed he quit because Channel 10 recently started broadcasting the main edition out of Jerusalem, whilst the rest of the producers, editors and reporters remained in the Tel Aviv studio. He claims "Even if viewers do not completely understand you picture studio project behind electronically, they notice, for example, no interviews, news studio, and recently we had a sequence of failures technical issues that were not in years."
