Josh Block, Bloomberg Industry Group’s executive producer for videos and podcasts, sent out the following announcement Wednesday:
We are very excited to announce that Tanya Lukyanova has joined Bloomberg Industry Group as a member of the video team.
Tanya joins as our senior video journalist and will be based in New York. She will help us by regularly producing high quality videos about legal, government, and tax topics that not only cater to our subscribers, but also resonate with a wider audience.
Most recently Tanya produced videos for Semafor, including a story about Ukraine’s artillery challenges, and another, that was animated using artificial intelligence, about life during the Russian offensive. She’s also been contributing to video projects about the war in Ukraine for the Wall Street Journal and The New Yorker.
Prior to that, Tanya wrote and produced five episodes of the Netflix documentary series “Explained,” including episodes on time, chess, sugar, and how to focus. She served as a producer on the Oscar winning documentary, “Navalny,” and worked with Alex Gibney on the documentary “Agents of Chaos” for HBO. Tanya got her start working on late night shows including Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee and, my old stomping grounds, The Late Show; even appearing on camera during Stephen Colbert’s 2017 trip to Russia.
Tanya was born and raised in Moscow and is just back from a visit home that just happened to occur while Yevgeny Prigozhin was also considering a trip to the city. She has been in the U.S. since 2011 and earned a BFA in film and television from NYU Tisch School of Arts.
Please join us in welcoming Tanya to the video team and Bloomberg Industry Group!
