One of ’s most well-known news anchors, Bassam Abou Zeid has announced his return to LBCI just months after resigning to join Al-Hadath’s team in Dubai.

In a tweet, Abou Zeid said he resigned from Al-Hadath for personal reasons, but did not elaborate further.

“I would like to thank the managers and colleagues [at Al-Hadath] for their love, understanding, and for this good, short-lived experience,” he said.

He added, “Returning to will also be a return to where I spent 30 years as a journalist at LBCI.”

Abou Zeid shocked the public after announcing his resignation from LBCI after 31 years at one of the country’s biggest and oldest television news channels.

When announcing he was leaving back then, he noted, “I’m not emigrating, and I’m not leaving with no return. Therefore, I say to you, until we meet again, and I love you all. Goodbye.”

Abou Zeid’s fans will be looking forward to seeing again the familiar face on their TV screens, as he resumes his role there where he left it months ago.
