Ashley Smith is a Multimedia Journalist/Weekend Anchor at WVVA.
Before moving to the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains, Ashley started her journalism career as a sports broadcaster working with Appalachian State Athletics and hosting AppTV's popular student program, "The A Game."
Ashley also attended Surry Community College and played two years of Junior College volleyball. While at SCC, Ashley found the passion for telling stories.
The infamous Duke Lacrosse case—portrayed by ESPN 30 for 30 as"Fantastic Lies," motivated Ashley getting into journalism. A combination of sports and journalism made her realize it's the job of the reporter to give the facts to viewers and make sure that everyone's story is being presented in the best and most accurate way possible.
Ashley is excited to be covering the West Virginia/Virginia area and can't wait to meet all the people around the area. Just make sure when you’re talking with Ashley about “Mountaineers” that you’re discussing the same team!
