Alison Rosen

As "newsgirl" and cohost of the “Adam Carolla Show” -- the world's most downloaded podcast with a Guinness record to prove it -- and host of the “Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend” podcast, Alison Rosen reaches over two million listeners weekly.

Alison was an early adopter to new media, building a loyal following through her blogs and videos, social media and interactive Ustream show for which she was dubbed, "The future of television," by former AOL CEO Barry Schuler.

Alison's roots are in traditional media, having written for Rolling Stone, The NY Post, Vibe Spin, Maxim, The Village Voice, People, Seventeen and Elle, among others. She started her career as a journalist early, writing for the Los Angeles Times while still in high school. She went on to work at the OC Weekly in Orange County as a music writer and then as Features Editor (while playing guitar in a punk band) 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 personality, appearing regularly on morning news shows in New York and on the late-night gab-fest “Red Eye” on Fox News Channel. She pops up all over the dial, most recently on& E!

In late 2008, she performed stand up at Gotham Comedy Club and won the title “New York’s Funniest Reporter.”

Since January 2011, she has been Adam Carolla’s news girl and cohost and in early 2012, Alison’s launched her own podcast, “Alison Rosen is Your New Best Friend,” to which her massive fanbase quickly followed.

Alison currently resides in Los Angeles and always gets lost, even though she has GPS.

Gratitude Oct 07, 2014

Gratitude is a word you hear bandied about quite a bit, and for good reason, I suppose. I mean, I get that it would be good to be grateful for all you have instead of bitter about all you don't; grateful for the things that have gone well in your lif... Read More

I Had Surgery and I Miss the Drugs Sep 23, 2014

I had surgery last week to remove fibroids from my uterus — a fairly common procedure — and discovered two things. One, I didn't have fibroids. And two, I can see the appeal of drug addiction. I've written previously about my husband and... Read More
