Alison is Adam’s newsgirl as well as the host of the new–but already chart-topping–podcast Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend.
A longtime journalist who has written for Rolling Stone, The NY Post, Page Six Magazine, Vibe, Spin, Maxim, The Village Voice, People and Seventeen and a go-to TV guest commentator, Alison Rosen has a quick wit, sharp tongue and a keen sense of pop culture, news and humor.
Alison began her career as a professional journalist early – scoring a contributing writer byline for the Los Angeles Times while still in high school in California. A prodigious writer and guitarist in a punk rock band, Alison worked at the OC Weekly in Orange County as a music writer and then as Features Editor before moving to New York and helming the “Hot Seat” section of Time Out New York.
Alison also carved a niche for herself as a pretty, witty and slightly devilish TV writer and guest, appearing regularly on the late-night gab-fest “Red Eye” on Fox News Channel, where she helped to develop the show’s distinctive double entendre guest introductions.
Previously, Alison’s weekly segment “Best Bets” ran on New York’s WNBC-TV from 2005 to 2008, where she highlighted and discussed events going on in the city. She has appeared on A&E’s “Biography,” E!’s “Chelsea Lately,” Fox & Friends,” Fox 5’s “Good Day New York,” the CW 11 “Morning News,” the CBS 2 News “This Morning” and countless E! and TV Guide Channel clip shows.
She performed stand up and won the “New York’s Funniest Reporter” award in 2008.
She interviewed Adam for Rolling Stone twelve years ago but he doesn’t remember.
She likes flavored coffee.
Bryan Bishop (“Bald Bryan”) has been the sound-effects guy and Adam’s on-air sidekick since 2006. He is also the host of The Film Vault, a movie-themed podcast which debuted at #1 on iTunes.
