  1. She’s pretty. But has already proven not to be the smartest cookie in the jar. Polar opposite smarts wise to Cake.

    • She pronounced Fabien Cousteau’s last name as “Cas-towe” repeatedly. And when called on it she defended herself by saying she was told to pronounce it that way before going on-air. No excuse. General knowledge should have been enough to know how to pronounce a well-known name such as this.
      Her looks are the most important thing. Smarts is just a small bonus and not required.

  2. well a quick review of her bio revealed she has a prerequisite to work at channel 10-fyi, penn state isnt the pre req im talking about

    Following her passion, Ashley graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism from Penn State University in May 2012 where she also cheered on the Nittany Lions from the sidelines as a member of the Penn State Lionettes Dance Team.

  3. A nice break from the parade of little old ladies (Shannon excepted). Give her a break and a start; like, you weren’t ever 23. Good luck kiddo

  4. I agree, Smartguy. Thanks for saying what you did. I’m a science teacher at the school from which Ashley has graduated. She’s a great person, and very smart. Don’t confuse that with being young and just starting out in an extremely judgemental career.
