Holy Toledo! I couldn't be happier to start my career in the city that raised me. I've been working at WTVG since 2008. First as a broadcast technician, then as an audio director and now as a general assignment reporter!
I graduated cum laude from the University of Toledo in 2011 where in between classes I worked behind the scenes at 13abc and also for the campus newscast for three years producing, anchoring and reporting. During my time producing, UT:10 news was nationally recognized two years in a row. In 2010, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences crowned UT first place in the nation for Best Overall Newscast. (Flying to LA for that award was an amazing experience!) The following year I helped UT:10 become a national finalists in the Society of Professional Journalists Mark of Excellence Awards for Best All-Around Television Newscast.
My inspiration for working in this industry started at Whitmer High School when I enrolled in WTMR, the morning announcements. I'm a huge panther fan! As a WHS alum cheerleader, you'll most likely find me on the field in my gold sweatshirt rooting on the football team every year during the alumni game.
Whenever I'm not working I love cracking open a good book, spending time with my amazing family, dining out, and then working out! If you have any story ideas please feel free to pass them my way! Ashley.Roth@13abc.com You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter!
