IDF radio personality Muli Shapira will receive the Israel Actors Association (EMI) Lifetime Achievement award for his unmatched contribution to local culture at a gala benefit for veteran comedian Sefi Rivlin. For the past 35 years, Shapira has headed the station's culture section, and since 1999, the music department as well. Throughout the years, he has also edited and presented IDF Radio's popular Friday morning Bilui Naim that covers coming and ongoing happenings in the performing arts, sports, literature and so forth.
