Ashley is currently a 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 day 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 FSG for the 5 and 6 o’ clock shows. Normally, she shoots, edits, and writes all stories by herself, but has also had the ability to use a photographer when available. In addition to reporting, Ashley is a fill-in anchor for the weekend and morning shows, and fill-in producer.
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.
