Ashley Daley joined NBC Charlotte in August 2016 as a multiskilled journalist for the 4, 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts.

Prior to NBC Charlotte, Ashley spent three years reporting for FOX affiliate WHNS in nearby Greenville, South Carolina.

There, Ashley covered the controversial police shooting death of teenager Zachary Hammond, interviewed the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Anne Richard regarding the rehoming of Syrian refugees in Spartanburg County and also landed an exclusive interview with Douglas Lindsay – a Newberry County man who was one of 46 drug offenders nationwide to have his life-sentence commuted by President Obama.

Prior to entering TV news, Ashley reported for technology media firms Ziff Davis Enterprise and United Business Media, both in New York City.

Ashley’s love of journalism began in the 5th grade and continued through high school, where she reported on school events and stories impacting students.

A native Floridian, Ashley began college at Florida State University where she was a member of the Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. She later transferred to Emerson College in Boston, M.A, where she graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.

Ashley resides in Charlotte with her husband, two young boys and Yorkie, Dozer. What she loves most about Charlotte is that it’s right smack in the middle of the mountains and the coast. It’s also not as hot as Florida, or as cold as Boston. She loves Florida State football, cheering on the Carolina Panthers (and FSU grads who now play for them), sunshine, hushpuppies and coffee (lots of coffee).

When not on the news, Ashley is a busy mom – changing diapers, chasing her oldest, and hoping she finds time to shower.

Ashley also loves hearing from viewers. Email her at adaley@wcnc.com. You can also follow her on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
