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 where she
worked from 2005 to 2008.
Alison has 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 has also
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

and hosted numerous “Time Out On Demand” segments. In addition to “Red Eye”, Alison can most
recently be seen on E!’s “Super Epic TV Moments” E!’s “True Hollywood Story”, TV Guide Channel
and “The Joy Behar Show” on HLN.

Since January, 2011 she has been Adam Carolla’s news girl and cohost of The Adam Carolla Show, the

Rosen is Your New Best Friend, to which her massive fanbase quickly followed. The show was #1 on the
iTunes overall chart and #1 on the iTunes comedy chart in its first week, holding the top spots through
week three and continuing to grow. Her guests have included Marc Maron, Fred Armison and Doug

Alison currently resides in Los Angeles where she’s sure there’s a perfect neighborhood to live in, if only
she could just find it.
