Ofer Nachshon is the iconic Israeli spoksperson. This year he moved people by mentionning that the national broadcaster of Israel was closing and that he feared this would be the last time Israel would take part in the contest. He also reminded people of Israel’s history in the contest, with its three wins (all iconic in their own genre). Israel was nominated twice overall in the ET Awards 2016, “Best Spokeperson” is its first and only one! Congratulations!
