“If anyone in this industry is feeling overwhelmed, look into meditation. It’s about clearing your mind and breathing so you can relax and accept the challenges of the world as they come in and not freak out about them.” – Gavin Dawson

With many of our guests, the “breakthrough formula” is fairly simple. Have talent, work hard, catch a break. And for Gavin Dawson of 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, it’s no different.

Dawson got a shot while in Portland filling in for Jim Rome. Before long, he was packing his bags for Dallas. Of course, he was a telemarketer first (and we just have to ask about that).

Dawson’s incredible flow, mix of sports and humor, and ability to give touches to everyone on a five-man show make him one of the best show drivers in the country.

Hear his Jim Rome story, the importance of social media, his telemarketing days, what goes into hosting a five hour daily show and much more on this episode of The PASR.
