Ashley Morrison, former CBS Moneywatch reporter, has joined WSVN as a general assignment reporter. Her first day reporting on 7 News was during the 4pm newscast today. Morrison was a financial reporter for CBS Moneywatch in New York until September 2013 but when the network decided to originate the program from the New York Stock Exchange Morrison quit because of the added two-hour commute. She was also an anchor and reporter with Bloomberg Television for two years, from 2007 to 2009.
Morrison’s arrival at WSVN marks a fresh start for her and her son. She had a very public fallout with her husband, former WCBS anchor Rob Morrison, who got arrested on February 17, 2013 and later charged with second-degree threatening, second-degree strangulation and disorderly conduct for allegedly choking his wife. He pled guilty on July 3, 2013 to threatening and breach of peace charges. Rob Morrison got arrested again in June for violating the protective order about Ashley Morrison.
