Regarding Dax Tejera 

Tejera was a prolific Television producer who gained much fame during his lifetime.

In 2017, he started working with the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) and went on to produce remote-anchored broadcasts nationwide as well as coverage of important summits between former President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. 

With Tejera’s appointment as chief producer of This Week in 2020, the program exceeded all Sunday shows in its demographic ratings for adults 25–54.

His resume also includes newsmaker interviews and reporting on Covid, the 2020 presidential race, and even coverage of the attack on US Capitol Hill on January 6th.

He previously worked as a producer at MSNBC and HBO on the film Hate Rising.
