Egypt’s Karate gold and Dalal Abdel Aziz’s passing dominate the airwaves

It was another quiet summer evening on the airwaves last night: The talking heads focused on two stories reflecting an emotional rollercoaster of a day for Egyptians — starting with Egypt’s historic Olympic gold win in Karate by Feryal Ashraf and Ahmed Elgendy’s silver win in the modern pentathlon (watch, runtime 32:39 | 2:30 | 3:53). Talkshows also took stock of the death of prolific and much-loved actress Dalal Abdel Aziz, who died of complications from covid-19 (watch, runtime 2:07 | 2:24). We have more on both stories above in this morning’s What We’re Tracking Today.
