Leon Charney was best known as a successful New York real estate investor. However, politics always played an important role in his life. In 1978 Charney served as the unofficial adviser to former President Jimmy Carter in the negotiations of The Camp David
Peace Accords. Following this political achievement, Charney created The Leon Charney Report in 1988. The show served to advance Charney's interest in the peace making process by bringing together different perspectives with a wide variety of guests from around the world. The Charney Report also covered a broad range of topics including: Local Politics, Foreign Affairs, the Middle East, Culture, Education, Entertainment and Religion.
Following the recent passing of Leon Charney, The Leon Charney Report will air its last TV broadcast on April 24, 2016.
