Early years

Dallow, who is the son of Ross Dallow,[1] was educated at Liston College and St Peter's College. He completed his tertiary education at Auckland University, where he studied law. After completing his legal studies, Dallow practised as a litigation and insurance lawyer in Auckland, New Zealand.[2]

Whilst on his OE, the 1987 stock market crash occurred, causing him to change careers, as a future in bankruptcy law was unappealing. Dallow then spent the next six years as a Contiki Tours tour director in Europe, where he met future wife Alison Mau. Both returned to New Zealand in 1993,[2] and began working for TVNZ.

Dallow married Mau in 1996, the couple had two children.[2] They separated in 2009.


Dallow has been employed by TVNZ since 1993, initially as a presenter for TV2's Newsnight, alongside then-partner Alison Mau and Marcus Lush.[3][4] From 1995, he and Mau presented the mid-evening edition of One Network News; the couple moved to the weekend bulletins in 1998.[5] Since 2006, he has co-anchored 1 News at Six alongside Wendy Petrie. The programme is normally broadcast live from an Auckland city studio; however, Dallow often broadcasts live on location for breaking news stories. From 2005 to 2007, Dallow also presented the mid-morning slot on Mix, then known as Viva FM.[6][7]
