Ashley Edlund

Ashley Edlund joined the News 8 team as a reporter in March of 2016 and is thrilled to be living and working in Rochester.

 

Her passion for news has taken Ashley all over the country. Ashley attended Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, and graduated in 2011 with a degree in Television Arts. While there, she spent three years anchoring/reporting her college newscast, and interning at News 8's Nexstar affiliate, WMBD 31 News.

 

Upon graduation, Ashley spent a year and a half as reporter at WTVY News 4 in Dothan, Alabama. There, she was one of the first reporters on the ground during the 2013 Midland City Hostage situation. Ashley spent a week working around the clock shifts, giving live reports to community on the latest fate of Ethan and his captor.

 

From there, Ashley went to WFXG Fox 54, in Augusta, Georgia. During her time in Georgia, she covered two states, Georgia and South Carolina, and kept the community up to speed around the clock when a massive ice storm hit town in 2014. Ashley jokes that she spent more time in the WFXG newsroom than she did her own home.

 

On her days off, you can find Ashley working out, spending time with her feisty Chihuahua Henri and decorating her new home.
