FELICE FRIEDSON is President/CEO of the American news agency, The Media Line. She embodies the creative vision, courage and persistence that has driven her three-decades of dedication to bringing the world accurate and trustworthy fact-based news from the Middle East.
A seasoned TV, print and radio journalist, Felice’s career covering the world’s most contentious region is marked with creativity and innovation that resulted in historic firsts, including a global Press and Policy Student Program.
After creating and producing a nationally-syndicated radio program in the ‘90s, Felice moved her family to the Middle East at the turn of the century to launch The Media Line, the American news agency specializing in coverage of that region. In a short time, themedialine.org became one of the most prolific providers of Mideast news content to the region and around the world.
