For the first time in its history, New York’s annual tribute to Israel parade up Fifth Avenue will be televised live. WWOR-TV Channel 9, which is owned by Fox Television Stations, is slated to carry the march, now called Celebrate Israel, from noon until 2 p.m. on June 5.

The decision to have the parade carried by one of the two Fox broadcast channels in New York — the other is Channel 5 — has nothing to do with Fox’s pro-Israel stance, according to parade organizers.
