Ashley Garrett is a Multimedia Journalist for channel 3. She was born and raised in Orlando with a larger than life personality and a genuine love for people.
Ashley’s love for news developed while she studied Broadcast Journalism at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University in Tallahassee, Florida. While there, she anchored, reported, served as a photographer and editor for News 20 at Five.
At the time, Tallahassee was a market 106, with a coverage area of more than 80,000 homes in North Florida and South Georgia. While in school, Ashley also served as a field reporter intern for ABC 27 WTXL in Midway, Florida. Ashley has had a taste of top 20 market news. She’s also worked as an Associate Producer at WESH 2 News in Orlando.
Interesting fact about Ms. Garrett: while scheduled to anchor for News 20 at Five, she was called to produce.
The very first time she was called to do so was during the time of a pretty big national story: “The Drum Major Hazing Death”. Thanks to that show, Ashley received the “Best College Newscast” award from the Associated Press in 2012. More recently, Ashley worked as a news producer.
She’s also no stranger to radio. She has served as a show talent, producer, reporter and show editor for WANM-FM.
