It is my pleasure to recommend Ashley for a position as a broadcast journalist. Ashley interned with us at KATV in Little Rock during the summer of 2016, and acted as a field producer during active live shots. She was professional, organized, and upbeat throughout the entire process.
The thing that stands out about Ashley most is her commitment to excellence. She began her internship with no background in broadcast… By the end of the session, she was proffering compelling story ideas, crafting strong packages, and vastly improving her on-air presence. She also created content for multiple social media platforms— making herself invaluable to the morning team.
Ashley is a confident interviewer, and has the gift of making anyone feel comfortable. She is innately curious, which gives her insight into the relevant questions to ask. I am eager to see where she goes as she makes her foray into the industry.

“I’m writing you, [Ashley] because you are an exception, and exceptional. You were not only curious, but committed. You didn’t complain when the task was menial and you didn’t complain when the task was difficult. Instead, you smiled, you laughed, you asked questions, you explored, you engaged, you excelled and you conquered, each and every challenge you were given. Not only did you conquer it, you grasped the concepts and the tools of the trade so quickly that you were well on you way to mastering it. You helped US, as a staff, to be excited about what we do for a living, and as a career, again. You showed us that it was important, meaningful and fun to do what we do each day.”
