Benztown Radio Networks has announced that it has entered into an agreement with Dawson McAllister Productions to market and affiliate its weekly talk radio show, Dawson McAllister Live with Jessica McVay (DMLive).

McAllister began his national radio show in the early ‘90’s on various Christian radio stations. Starting with only five stations, his call-in talk show, DMLive grew to nationwide distribution, and in 1994 was voted National Religious Broadcaster’s Talk Show of the Year.
Compelled by the burgeoning needs of hurting young callers, McAllister created TheHopeLine — an off-air call center where one-on-one conversations might truly effect change in the lives of teenagers and young adults. He also grew the show’s outreach through affiliations across mainstream radio.
Benztown President Dave “Chachi” Denes said: “Our partnership with Dawson and his team started a few years ago when we started to image his show. We are proud to expand our relationship and offer this one-of-a-kind show to radio stations across the country. DMLive and TheHopeLine have helped prevent thousands of teen and young adult suicides each year and provide a lifeline and a message of hope that every community can benefit from. Through DMLive, Dawson connects with teens and young adults each week in a very real and powerful way. We are thrilled to make this important programming available to stations of all formats and market sizes for cash or barter.”
Host Dawson McAllister adds: “I am so excited to partner with Benztown. There are so many teenagers and young adults who need help. Together we can make a life changing difference. We are asking programmers to join us.”
