Dawson McAllister is recognized internationally as a gifted youth communicator. During his career spanning two decades, Dawson has spoken to millions of teenagers and young adults through television, student conferences, and radio.

In January 1991, McAllister began broadcasting a live two-hour call-in program for teenagers on 13 radio stations.
