Shai Regev, 25, a gossip reporter, was murdered by Hamas terrorists at the Supernova music festival near Re’im on October 7.

Regev worked as an editor for TMI, the gossip and entertainment news section of the Ma’ariv newspaper.

“The cursed terrorists, animals, destroyed the life of our Shai — talented, creative and full of love,” said Ma’ariv editor-in-chief Golan Bar-Yosef in a statement. “We will always remember your magical smile.”

Noa Rachamim, a good friend of Regev who also worked as a TMI editor, said the staff “is struggling to accept and absorb this horrible news about the death of our Shai, who was a major pillar of all TMI activities and our success… today we lost not just a dedicated professional but also a real friend and a huge light, whose loss we will feel with every word and letter we write.”

Regev’s final byline on TMI was on a story about Bruno Mars, the pop singer who performed in Israel just days before the Hamas massacre and was forced to cancel his sold-out Tel Aviv show planned for the evening of the attack.
