Alison Roses Bio
Alison Michelle Rosen was born on 11 May 1975 in Orange County, California. During her school days, Rosen was part of a music group. After graduating from high school, she graduated from Pomona College.
Alison has been an enthusiastic writer since childhood and began her career as a freelance writer. She has written articles for well-known media such as People, Rolling Stone, Village Voice, and others.
She wrote and edited between 1999 and 2002 for the free weekly OC Weekly. Alison lived for some time in New York, where she worked as an author and editor for Time Out New York. Shortly thereafter, she used her pen skills to watch her appearance on television.
She was a guest on the programs of Fox News and CNN. Alison expanded her repertoire in 2011 when she became the new newsgirl on the Adam Carolla show and replaced Teresa Strasser, who left the show due to scheduling conflicts after the recording was moved to the night.
Alison’s roles in the Adam Carolla show included introducing messages for discussion between Adam and his guests. The show was incredibly popular and received a Guinness World Record for the most downloaded podcast.
To their shock, Alison was released from the show in 2014, but the news did not reach fans until January 2015.
In her exclusive interview with The Wrap, Alison revealed that she had been fired by SMS and that she was as shocked as her fans.
“I am as confused as the fans… I think there’s this feeling that all this stuff is happening behind the scenes, but I wasn’t privy,” she said to The Wrap.
She added: “For whatever reason, he made that decision and decided it would be in the best interest of the show – and I have to respect that.”
Alison’s shooting couldn’t have been worse. She was on vacation in New York with her husband when she received the e-mail. But it could have been worse if she had nothing to fall back on. Fortunately for Alison, she had released her own podcast in 2012, about a year after participating in the Carolla’s Show.
Alison’s podcast was a quick success. It included a personal interview with her guests, which included celebrities, political commentators and television personalities. Alison Rosen is your new best friend, who has received over a million downloads in just a few months and ranks 25th on the iTunes comedy podcast chart.
Today, the podcast continues to be its biggest donor. In addition to her podcast, Alison has appeared on other popular podcasts, including Ken Reid’s TV Guidance Counselor podcast and Shane Dawson’s podcast Shane and Friends.
