Dallow, who is the son of Ross Dallow, 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.
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, and began working for TVNZ.
Dallow married Mau in 1996, the couple had two children. They separated in 2009.
Dallow was employed by TVNZ as a presenter for TV2's Newsnight with wife Alison Mau, and anchored several news and current affairs programmes for the network. He currently works as the primary co-anchor of 1 News. The programme is normally broadcast live from an Auckland city studio; however, Dallow often broadcasts live on location for breaking news stories.
