Ashley Matthews, General Assignment Reporter, Multi-Media Journalist

Ashley Matthews is thrilled to be back in San Diego! She’s originally from Wisconsin and moved to San Diego for college; a Cal-State San Marcos graduate. She’s also a former intern of NBC 7. Since then, Ashley has worked at stations across the country; beginning her reporting career in Bemidji, a small city in northern Minnesota. From there she went on to work at two stations in Grand Junction, Colorado where she was the Morning Anchor/Reporter/Producer/Weather Forecaster and Evening Anchor/Reporter/Producer. During her time in Colorado, Ashley covered destructive wildfires that spread across the entire state.

Ashley then moved back to her home state of Wisconsin where she was the morning Anchor and Reporter for the NBC affiliate in Madison. She’s a huge sports fan and was honored to travel across the country reporting on the Badgers Men’s Basketball team’s quest for an NCAA Championship title. During her time in Wisconsin, she received awards from the Wisconsin Broadcaster’s Association for “Best Live Reporting” and “Best Feature Story.”

Ashley has also trained in many areas of the newsroom; including producing, assignment desk and digital. When she’s not tracking down the next big story, she enjoys home improvement projects, exploring new places around San Diego, hiking, hanging out at San Diego Zoo and spending time with her three-pound dog. No, that’s not a typo. Please contact Ashley at
