LOS ANGELES –- Alex Curry’s career rise continues, as she will become the host of a new FOX Sports Radio show, The Sporting Tribune has learned.
Curry will be the host of the new women-led weekend program, FOX Sports Saturday with Alex Curry and Monse Bolaños. The show, which Curry will co-host with FOX Sports Radio’s Monse Bolaños, will debut this Saturday and occupy the 4 – 6 p.m. ET/1 – 3 p.m. PT timeslot on Saturdays on the network.
The show will be the only one on Fox Sports Radio’s lineup hosted by women.
“From the moment I started in this industry, I’ve been saying, I want my own show, and I’ve been working towards that over the last decade,” Curry told The Sporting Tribune. “To have an opportunity like this hosting a woman-led weekend show on FOX Sports Radio is just a dream come true.
“My goal in life has always been to evolve, and to continue to grow and get better every single day at my craft. When I first started in this industry, there weren’t a ton of opportunities available for women. And it was always a goal and a dream of mine to change that.”
Curry, a Manhattan Beach native who was a soccer star at Mira Costa High School and San Diego State University, joined FOX Sports in 2012 and currently co-hosts the “Flippin’ Bats” podcast with Ben Verlander, and regularly fills in on FS1 studio shows, including “The Herd with Colin Cowherd.” She previously hosted “FOX Bet Live” and from 2012 to 2021, she was a reporter for the Los Angeles Angels and Los Angeles Kings on Fox Sports West.
“I’ve been incredibly fortunate that I’ve been a part of the FOX Sports family since the beginning of my career in 2011, and as I have continued to grow and evolve, FOX Sports has always been willing and able to grow with me,” Curry said. “For most of my career, I have either been asking questions or setting up other people to share their opinion and for the first time now I have a platform and an opportunity to share my love for sports and give my perspective”
Bolaños, who was hired by FOX Sports Radio in February 2022, is also a local product having graduated from Cal State Fullerton and interned for the Los Angeles Clippers and KCBS in Los Angeles.
“Monse shared with me that I was an inspiration for her to get into this industry and it made me realize why it’s so important to continue to move forward and inspire the next generation of women in sports. And I hope this show does that.”
Curry said she’s excited for the show’s debut on Saturday, which coincides with Week 1 of the college football season, but is also hoping that the show opens the door for more women to get sports talk shows.
“From the moment I can remember, sports have always been such a big part of my life,” Curry said. “I still pinch myself that this is what I get to do for work. It’s a dream job and I love every moment, show and game I get to talk about. But I realize it’s not only about following my dreams and reaching my goals but paving the way for that next generation of women in sports.”
