Sideline Reporter

Allison pursued her dream of becoming a Journalist after completing college.

CSS immediately hired her as a high-spirited graduate to cover college-level basketball and football matches.

Gradually, Williams’ natural hosting ability led the network to assign her as an anchor for a segment called Ultimate Fan Experience.

The Michiganites traveled to Florida to work for FOX Sports after the CSS contract ended in 2010.

At the same time, upon arrival at FOX Sports and discussing service terms, the network decided to enlist Allison as a sideline reporter and a pregame show host.

Besides, she covered the Florida Panthers hockey team and the Florida Marlins baseball on home games with play-by-play man Steve Goldstein, color analyst Bill Lindsay, and sportscaster Frank Forte.

FOX Sports gave more opportunities to Williams, as she got to host a show called Miccosukee Sports Rap.

Eventually, the Miami Dolphins acquired her as a team member to report on their games and anchor Dolphins Game Day Live.

With sufficient experience, the sportscaster ventured into radio, wherein the Michigan-born undertook the hosting roles for Radio 560 WQAM for a year.

ESPN

Thus, with lots to give and a lot to prove, Williams applied for a post at ESPN.

The network accepted her request, and as of March 2011, Allison proudly reported for the said network.

In the same way, working at ESPN brought the limelight that the sportscaster never thought possible.

The broadcasting company entrusted her to handle the Big Monday segment’s hosting duties that widely covered college games.

In 2016, Allison moved from the Friday ESPN Night college football game to the Saturday slots on ABC/ESPN.

She worked with analysts Brock Huard and commentator Bob Wischausen.

After fulfilling the roles designated to her, Allison found another segment to be a part of; The Jason Taylor Celebrity Golf Special. However, fate turned, and she had to face some uncertain challenges.

Williams departed from ESPN in October 2021 because she did not want to take the COVID-19 vaccination as she was planning for her second baby.

As ESPN mandated the COVID-19 vaccination, following the reason she resigned from the network.

She posted a 5-minute video to update her fans and followers, stating that her request was denied by the ESPN and Walt Disney Company.

Fortunately, after leaving ESPN, she joined The Daily Wire.

Lawsuit

Allison, a former ESPN reporter, joined hands with another former ESPN producer Beth Faber and filed a case against the sports network in Connecticut on 08 January 2023.

They claimed their religious beliefs were violated.

In August, she applied for disability exemption from the network’s vaccine mandate as she was undergoing in vitro fertilization.

At the time, she could not get a doctor’s letter to support her concerns due to threats given to medical providers for doing so in California, leading her to apply for a religious exemption weeks later.

She claimed she was a Christian and sincerely believed in prohibiting vaccination.

But anyway, they were fired in 2021 for failing to comply with the company vaccine rule.

The lawsuit claimed that ESPN and Disney made no effort to accommodate her even after they offered to work remotely and follow all other things expect being vaccinated.

The 83-page complaint alleged Disney’s vaccine mandate was not their doing but a “state action” influenced by its “symbiotic relationship with the Defense Department.” 

They sought “compensatory damages, back and front pay, reputational damages, damages for emotional trauma and distress, punitive damages, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of the action, pre-and post-judgment interest.”

As the case is still going on, and there have been no updates on this case as of this writing. We will be sure to update you when the verdict is returned.

Similarly, she was asked if her father is a renowned anchor, Brian Williams, who worked for CBS and NBC.
