Biography

May Chidiac (مي شدياق‎) was a television journalist at the Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation (LBC), where she was also one of the station's main television anchors until the assasination attempt on her life. She was one of the few critics of Syria's hegemony over Lebanon.On the day she was nearly killed, she had hosted a talk show in which she criticized Syria's continuous meddling in Lebanon's affairs and voiced fears over further violence ahead of the UN report on the death of the former prime minister, Rafik Hariri. On February 3, 2009, she announced her resignation on her show "Bi Kol Jor'a", that used to air on the LBC.

Chidiac was seriously injured on 25 September 2005, by a car bomb in Jounieh, Lebanon. The bomb which nearly killed her was a one-pound device, detonated as she entered her car. Her left leg below the knee was blown off and her hair and clothes were set on fire. She was said to be in stable condition following the amputation of her severely injured left arm.

After months of treatment and numerous surgeries in Beirut and Paris, May appeared on TV on May 25, 2006, defiant, smiling and promising to return to journalism.

On 27 January 2006, Chidiac announced her candidacy for the vacated Maronite seat in Lebanon's Baabda-Aley district in a televised interview.

On 12 July 2006, May Chidiac returned to Beirut. Her first visit in Lebanon was to the shrine of Saint Charbel, in the Byblos region. This was the location where she spent the day before the terrorist attack on her life. She participated in a thanksgiving mass celebrated by the superior of the monastery, Fr Tannous Nehme.

In 2007, May Chidiac published her biography, Le Ciel m'attendra (French for "heaven can wait”) in which she tells her painful experience.

On February 3, 2009 May Chidiac announced on the air and to everybody's surprise that she will no longer present "B Kil Jora'a" on LBC. She has made no other comments about her future career move.
