  Earl G. Cox has been active in the political arena for over 30 years having served in senior level positions in the administrations of four U.S. Presidents.   He was the national campaign manager for both the
  Elizabeth Dole and Colin Powell presidential draft campaigns. He has been the featured guest on many national television network and cable news programs. In the year 2000 during the Elizabeth Dole campaign,
  C-Spann produced a thirty-minute "Road to the White House" program featuring Earl Cox as he traveled New Hampshire garnering support for Elizabeth Dole. This program aired across the United States, Canada,
  and Great Britain. 

  Earl's career began in 1964 as news director and evening news anchor at a CBS owned station in Durham, N.C.  In 1965 he was chosen by Capital Broadcasting to travel to South Vietnam to report feature news.
  His daily television reports from Vietnam earned him the U.S. Government's Distinguished Citizenship Award.  Earl is also the recipient of the U.S. Department of Commerce Bronze Medal Award; the federal government's third highest award.     

Upon returning from Vietnam, Earl was invited to relocate to the Washington D.C. area to serve as Special Assistant and Press Secretary to Congressman James Gardner.  In 1969 he was named by President Richard Nixon as Director of Broadcasting and Chief Spokesman for the U.S. Department of Commerce.  Following President Nixon's resignation, Earl was under consideration to serve as Press Secretary to President Gerald Ford.  Earl received three additional Presidential appointments: Press Secretary to U.S. Labor Secretary Raymond Donovan, Director of Information and Public Affairs for the U.S. Department of Labor, and Director of Information and Public Affairs for the U.S.  Department of Agriculture.  He has served as a ghostwriter for numerous national political figures, publications, manuals, and books relating to American politics.  For over twelve years Earl was listed in "Who's Who in American Government Politics."  In 1992 he was appointed to serve as the Executive Director for the Bush/Quayle campaign in North Carolina where his leadership and skills secured a Bush victory in that state.    

Presently Earl, along with his wife Kathleen, is actively crusading for Israel.  Since July 2001, Earl has been seen and heard on major television and radio stations across America and around the world.  His message has been for the people of God to unite by laying aside denominational and racial differences.  As a result of his ongoing media campaign, many churches and synagogues have come together with one voice in support of Israel.  During one of his trips to the Holy Land, Earl produced and voiced television spots for Israeli Channel 2 Television Network expressing support for the people of Israel.  Millions of Israelis and Arabs have been exposed to these spots over Israeli airwaves.  In addition to airing messages of support for Israel through the electronic media, Earl has also posted messages of support on billboards both here in the United States and in Israel.   Earl is continually working on programs and projects designed to encourage and strengthen the Jewish nation.  “Support for Israel” bus tours are among the many promotional tools Earl has used to garner support for the State of Israel.  His sights are currently set on internet television with plans in the works for special broadcasts and commentaries.       

In February 2003, Earl launched Front Page Jerusalem Global Radio Network; an international radio broadcast airing on stations coast to coast in America and around the world featuring news directly from the Holy Land and exclusive interviews with senior level Israeli government officials, religious, business and community leaders. Front Page Jerusalem has grown to be the most listened to broadcast produced out of the Middle East targeting Christian audiences around the world. This program is the first of its kind and is considered the premiere Christian radio talk show highlighting Israel.      

Earl's efforts on behalf of the State of Israel have earned him the respected title "Friend of Israel." Ehud Olmert, the former Prime Minister of Israel, named Earl “the voice of Israel to America.”  Earl has had the privilege of numerous personal meetings with senior ranking Israeli government officials and recognized leaders within Orthodox and Conservative Jewish communities.  Earl regularly travels to Israel to hand-deliver financial gifts to help meet specific needs such as the rebuilding of Yemin Orde Youth Village and Operation LifeShield and also to conduct interviews for Front Page Jerusalem Global Radio Network.  This is in addition to his efforts to establish open channels of communication between the Jewish and Christian communities here in America and in Israel.  Part of this effort includes the establishment of the American Christian Reserve (ACR) also known as Israel Always; an all volunteer entity whose sole mission is to uplift and encourage the State of Israel and her people through the promotion of tourism to the Holy Land, by providing financial assistance to victims of terrorist attacks, aiding the terror-stricken economy by promoting Israeli products, educating the public concerning the rising tide of anti-Semitism, encouraging moral and financial support for Israel among churches and government leaders, organizing “Evening for Israel” rallies across America and speaking out against anti-Semitism whenever and wherever it is found.  

During the Intifada and the war with Lebanon, Earl stood side by side on the front lines with the IDF soldiers providing them with encouragement and also with much needed supplies.

Earl has served as a member of the Christian Advisory Board for El Al Airlines.  He has also served as the official international spokesperson for Operation LifeShield; an emergency campaign to provide ‘transportable’ bomb shelters to areas of need in Israel.  He is a contributing writer for the Jerusalem Post Online Premium Christian Edition. Additionally, Earl Cox proposed to the directors of Yad Vashem - the world famous Holocaust Memorial Museum in Jerusalem - an idea to form a Christian Leadership Council of Remembrance. Yad Vashem has embraced this concept and asked Earl for assistance in securing the initial council members.  This council has now been in place for several years.  Having a Christian council at Yad Vashem represents another historical first in the ongoing development of Christian and Jewish relations.

 

In January 2012, Earl Cox along with Chief Rabbi Shlomo Riskin of Efrat, were named by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as Good Will Ambassadors from Israel to Jewish and Christian communities around the world.
