Ashley Smith is excited to begin a career in the Tri-State region as a meteorologist and reporter! Ashley started at FOX19 NOW in September of 2017.
After graduating with a B.S. in Meteorology from Penn State University, Ashley moved to Kirksville, Missouri in May of 2008. There she was the weekend meteorologist and general assignment reporter at KTVO-TV.
In 2010, Ashley moved to Charleston, West Virginia to return to her Mountain State roots. She is originally from Chester, West Virginia, home of the world's largest teapot! Ashley spent two years as the weekend meteorologist at WCHS-TV/Fox 11. During that time she received the West Virginia Associated Press Broadcasters Association award for Best Weathercaster Runner-Up.
Before arriving in Cincinnati, Ashley was the morning meteorologist at WSIL-TV in southern Illinois. Ashley spent nearly five years in Carterville experiencing major snow storms, flooding, severe storms and tornadoes.
When Ashley isn't forecasting the weather, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their dog "Windy" or training for her latest marathon. She also cheers for the Nittany Lions and the Steelers. (Sorry Bengals fans!)
