Simon Dallow (born 18 June 1964) is a New Zealand journalist, barrister and television personality.

Early years[edit]

Dallow, who is the son of Ross Dallow,[2] 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.[3]

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,[3] and began working for TVNZ.

Dallow married Mau in 1996, the couple had two children.[3] They separated in 2009.


Dallow was employed by TVNZ as a presenter for TV2's Newsnight with wife Alison Mau,[4] 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.
