The host of “The Modern Jewish Home” on Israel News Talk Radio, Heather Dean brings two seemingly divergent parts of life together. Before coming to Israel, Heather lived and worked in NYC as a premiere entertainment journalist, interviewing hundreds of celebrities for popular magazines and television, including MTV, the Associated Press, People Magazine, and E! Entertainment Television. Her long roster of celebrity interviews included the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Madonna, Robin Williams, Natalie Portman, Johnny Depp, Sean Penn and many more.
More than sixteen years ago, Heather chose to leave that life behind and instead live a more meaningful life in Israel with her husband. Today she is back to on-air interviewing, but now talks with the “stars” of the Jewish world. Heather also frequently speaks with schools and groups about interviewing, about her exciting experiences in the celebrity world, and why she ultimately embraced her life in Israel.
She has written a book, “Searching for Heather Dean”, about her intriguing and unique journey, due to be published later this year.
