Miki Haimovich (Hebrew: מיקי חיימוביץ'‎‎  pronounced [ˈmiki ˈχa.imovitʃ]; born 15 June 1962) is an Israeli television presenter. Alongside Ya'akov Eilon, she was the anchorwoman for Channel 10 news for nine years.[1]

After studying for a BA in political science from Tel Aviv University, Haimovich began working as a researcher for Channel 1 programmes Mabat Sheni and Boker Tov Israel. In 1990, she began editing the news for the Matav cable channel, later becoming chief editor. In 1993, she and Ya'akov Eilon became the first news anchors on the new commercial Channel 2, until moving to Channel 10 together, in 2002.

In June 2011, Haimovitch resigned from the Channel 10 news.[2]

In 2012, Haimovich joined a non-partisan campaign enlisting leading artists, television presenters and journalists to encourage voter participation in the 2013 Knesset elections.[3]

Haimovich is vegan and in 2012 she launched the Meatless Monday Israel initiative.[4][5]
