Tex, has held a great passion for the news and television industry since before he can remember. He came across a live news cross when he was 10-years-old and didn’t look back with his first piece of vision to air on Seven News Perth at only age 12.

With Western Australia’s unhealthy lack of news diversity, Tex decided to create something unique, unbiased, politically central and informing.
