Ashley Smith delivers the weather forecast on News 3 This Morning. She started at WSIL in November of 2012.
Ashley is excited to be back in the Midwest where her career began. After graduating with a B.S. in Meteorology from Penn State University she 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.
When Ashley isn't forecasting the weather, she enjoys spending time with her dog "Windy" or training for her latest marathon. She also cheers for the Nittany Lions and the Steelers.
