WXXI News “Connections”
Evan Dawson elevated the “Connections” brand at WXXI News when he took over as host of the afternoon radio talk show in 2014 — and he’s only gotten better. His show runs from 12 to 2 p.m. on 1370 AM on weekdays, and typically involves in-depth conversations with local and national experts on two specific topics, one devoted to each hour of airtime. A master interviewer and a quick study, Dawson is prepared and often comes off as well-versed as his guests, whether the topic be heavy, light, or irreverent. Dawson makes his listeners smarter.
