Ashley is currently a weekend anchor, reporter and multimedia journalist for KSNF in Joplin, Missouri. In May 2017, she moved to the Show-Me State where she covers news in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma.
A typical weekday requires Ashley to turn at least three stories of news content for KSNF and its sister station KODE. Stories include creating one package, one VOSOT, and either another VOSOT, VO, or graphic for the 5, 6 and 10 o’ clock shows. Normally, she shoots, edits, and writes all stories herself, but she also has the ability to use a photographer when available.
When she works on the weekends, she compiles story ideas, shoots, edits, and writes stories. She then produces and anchors the shows.
Before moving to Joplin, Ashley graduated Cum Laude from the University of Central Arkansas with honors. During her senior year, she worked for the news station on campus, News 6, as the News Director. She also interned for KATV during the summer of 2016 in Little Rock, AR where she first fell in love with the idea of being a journalist.
Broadcast journalism is no longer a straight-line industry; it is an ever-changing, multimedia platform to get the latest information to the public. It requires hard work, dedication, and a passion to always be on the lookout for new stories. Ashley enjoys the energy journalism brings, and the people that she meets along the way.
