Alison Rosen is a writer, TV personality and podcaster best known for her podcast, “Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend,” which has over 25 million downloads, as well as being the former “newsgirl” and co-host of “The Adam Carolla Show.”
Alison’s roots are in traditional media: She began her career as a professional
journalist early, scoring a contributing writer byline for the Los Angeles
Times while still in high school. Her work has appeared in Rolling Stone,
People, Seventeen, Elle, the New York Post, Vibe, Spin, Maxim, the Village
Voice, The Huffington Post, OC Weekly, Time Out New York, Yahoo and Bon
Appetit, among others.
Alison has built a loyal following through her blogs, videos, social media and interactive Ustream show (the precursor to her podcast), for which she was dubbed “the future of television” by former AOL CEO Barry Schuler.
She has also carved a niche for herself as a pretty, comical, slightly devilish TV personality.
Years ago, she played in a band, which she likes to mention because it sounds cool. And she was born in Oakland, which she believes gives her cred even though she only lived there for seven months.
Alison currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband, baby and dog. She always gets lost, even though she has GPS.
