- ―Dax Gazaway
Dax Gazaway was a Podracing announcer who covered many races on the Outer Rim prior to the Clone Wars during the year 24 BBY. Dax's hometown was Mos Espa, a city located on the Outer Rim planet of Tatooine. He was said to know every pilot in the circuits he broadcast.
Dax Gazaway was born in the city of Mos Espa, located on the Outer Rim planet of Tatooine. A bustling town, Mos Espa was known for the annual Boonta Eve Classic Podrace, which attracted fans from across the galaxy. By 24 BBY, Gazaway had picked up the profession of Podrace broadcaster and in-race commentator. Gazaway followed the 24 BBY Podracing season, which saw a number of seasoned professionals return to the track alongside a number of newcomers. The season was most notable for the return of the Dug pilot Sebulba, entering the season with a massive Collor Pondrat Plug-F Gargantuan Split-X Podracer and his old nemesis, Anakin Skywalker, a former slave who was by now a Jedi in training.
Gazaway followed the competition across the various circuits and courses, broadcasting the races. Gazaway would usually begin the race, previewing some of the course's features before sending the pilots off. He would then partake in color commentary, remarking on the behavior of certain pilots on the track, as well riffing crashes with numerous metaphors. Despite his occasionally callous remarks, he was said to have had a working relationship with every pilot in the tournament. At the season's end, Gazaway traveled the palace of Jabba the Hutt to announce the season's victor.
