Renowned Israeli journalist and author Israel Segal, 63, died Thursday morning of heart failure.
In a career that spanned print, radio and television, he worked for Ha'olam Hazeh magazine, Israel Radio and Channel 2. He was also the author of five books.
Six months ago he had a heart attack while driving and was hospitalized in critical condition. He was released after a month. His condition took a turn for the worse earlier this week, and he was hospitalized again.
Segal's funeral will be held on Friday at Kibbutz Ma'aleh Hahamisha.
