The Ridiculously Rapid Rise of Angels Weekly Host Alex Curry

There are many memorable tidbits in the easyreadernews.com profile of Alex Curry, the 24-year-old Manhattan Beach resident who debuted this month as host of the Friday Fox Sports West show Angels Weekly. But we were particularly struck by the following details:

Her manager, Peter Gallagher – who usually only works with actors, such as Brad Pitt and Zach Galifianakis – recognized unusual qualities in Curry when he took her on as client. “She is warm, she is bubbly, she is just herself – and it comes across on camera, her personality,” Gallagher said…

Gallagher believes this is just the beginning of a career that has few limits. Hers, he said, is an utterly natural star quality, and unlike so many people attracted to show business, her drive does not emanate from a lack of esteem or need for attention – she genuinely just loves to get to know people and tell their stories.

Curry first met both Gallagher and a key Fox Sports West producer contact while bartending at sports bar Baja Sharkeez. Her manager quickly helped her land additional talent agency representation with ICM, and along with FSN, Curry has also hosted shows on Fuel TV, Comcast’s Beach Sports Network, E! and YouTube.
