Simon Dallow

Newsreader [Ngāti Pukenga, Ngāti Piktao]

Simon Dallow worked as a lawyer before changing tack in Europe, and starting six years in tourism. Soon after returning home in 1993 he scored his first newsreading job, on TV2's Newsnight. Best known for his many years co-presenting TV One's primetime news bulletin, Dallow has also fronted Rugby World Cup coverage, acclaimed current affairs interview show Agenda, and historical series What Lies Beneath.

What television can offer is the ability to see the interviewee react. What does the body language say? We want to give the viewers credit for being intelligent and let them form their own opinions. It isn’t about having two combatants in an arena. Simon Dallow on television interviewing, in The Listener, 19 June 2004
