Ashley Hanley began as a news reporter in May 2013 and is thrilled to be coming home to the station she grew up watching. A North Mankato native and Mankato West graduate, Ashley earned her degrees in journalism, political science and communication studies/digital film and television from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls (UWRF). Ashley interned for KEYC for two summers and over a winter break and is excited to be back working with a great group of people in the newsroom.
Ashley is a huge softball fan, having played for the Scarlets, and is a former KEYC Prep Athlete of the Week. She also competed for four years at UWRF, helping the Falcons to two Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) titles, and two NCAA appearances. In her junior year, the team was one game away from the College World Series and after her senior year, Ashley was honored as the WIAC's Woman of the Year. Despite going to school in Wisconsin with a bunch of Cheeseheads, Ashley remains loyal to her Minnesota Vikings and is a huge Minnesota Twins fan.
