News 12 police reporter Moshe Nussbaum revealed today (Saturday) that he has been diagnosed with ALS - muscular dystrophy.
In an email he wrote to his colleagues on the channel, the 68-year-old Nussbaum made it clear that he intended to appear on television - but in lower doses.
"I guess for the last seven days some of you have been asked what happened to me and why I speak slowly, even I was asked," Nussbaum wrote to his friends in News 12. "I therefore find it appropriate to share with you the assessment that emerges after a series of tests and appointments with specialists. I'm in the early stages of ALS - an incurable muscular dystrophy. Yes, it's not pleasant. My family and I are aware of the consequences and are prepared accordingly. No, there is no need to rush to say goodbye, comfort or eulogize me.
"Right now, I intend to continue working, although naturally I am downshifting (anyway the number of police officers is decreasing and therefore the number of reports is decreasing respectively). In order not to 'stick' the editions, I will appear less in front of a camera, "And it will not help Sudri and Helfgott anything - I will sit in the studio and take out their soul ... so in the afternoon programs."

"The decision to continue the work was made in consultation with Avi Weiss (CEO of News 12 - WT), this is the place to say a few words about the conduct of the editors of the edition and the programs - and especially of my father - regarding me: the fact that I was allowed to continue broadcasting in recent months Despite the slow and unusual talk came from a particularly brave, value-based, extraordinary and commendable decision. For this I remove the hat (and in my terms - eyebrow connector). Finally, I have no special request. Oil that deserves to be shared with you. "
