An on-camera media expert, Allison has made over a thousand appearances on every major network, including NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, CNN, MSNBC, FoxNews, E!, VH1, and MTV. Since 2009, she’s been an on-air correspondent for NBC’s New York NonStop, covering twelve seasons of designers, celebrities, and behind-the-scenes at New York Fashion Week. From 2007 – 2008, Allison was Editor-at-Large for STAR magazine, hired to be the tv “face” for their brand.

Along the way, Allison has provided commentary for dozens of shows, including The Today Show, CBS’ Early Show, Chelsea Lately, CNN’s Reliable Sources, The Wendy Williams Show, The Ricki Lake Show, Access Hollywood, Showbiz Tonight, Fox & Friends, CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin, ABC’s Windy City Live, Glenn Beck, The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, Hannity & Colmes, G4’s Attack of the Show, MTV’s It’s On with Alexa Chung and the weekly Relationship 101 segment on Fox’s Morning Show with Mike & Juliet.

Allison conceptualized, executive produced and co-hosted over 100 episodes of the short-form chat show, TMI Weekly, dubbed “The View of the Facebook generation,” (she may or may not have dubbed it that herself) from Next New Networks during 2008-2009. The show aired daily on NBC’s NY NonStop cable channel as well as iTunes & Hulu – making over a quarter million dollars in ad revenue, setting records for web video at the time. The only problem? No one really watched it. Oh well.

File Under: I Really Freaking Earned My Salary Today

Why no entries lately?  Oh, you know, just because I’ve done like 1600 things in the last few days.

Okay, maybe not 1600.  But that’s what it felt like.

Sometimes people don’t entirely understand my job, but I think I’ve finally figured out a way to explain it – if you ever did debate in high school, like, um … me … then you’ve heard of a form called Extemp.  Obviously that’s short for extemporaneous speaking, but in general the way it works is 1) you do background research on a variety of topics, 2) you’re given the [read more...]
