Ashley Stroehlein joined WCNC Charlotte as a sports anchor and reporter in August 2019.
For five years, Ashley was the weekend sports anchor at WBTV. Ashley worked as a sideline reporter at Conference USA games for the NFL Network and the pit reporter for Bristol Motor Speedway’s Cup, Xfinity and Truck series races. Ashley also formerly joined the Charlotte Knights and Charlotte Checkers as an in-game host for both teams.
Ashley said trust is important to her because it is the foundational piece in any relationship in our lives.
"Developing trust allows you to be vulnerable, open and have an understanding for others," Ashley explained. "In my professional career, I work to gain the trust of others by developing relationships, keeping my word and having compassion for others. It’s important to hear and understand others’ perspectives, backgrounds and points of view when sharing their story. It is my goal to be sincere, authentic and transparent and in doing so I hope that will help gain the trust of others."
The world of athletics has played a significant role in Ashley’s life. As a four-sport star in high school, she earned All-District Honors in basketball, volleyball, softball, track and cross country. She was named the Virginia High School Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2006 and graduated as her school’s valedictorian.
Ashley graduated with honors from Radford University, majoring in mathematics. She moved to North Carolina to teach secondary math and coach basketball and track. However, her passion for sports led her to decide to return to school to study broadcasting.
Ashley’s work as an anchor and storyteller has earned her many industry honors. Most notably, she is a three-time recipient of the prestigious Gracie Award, which recognizes exemplary programming created by, for and about women in all facets of media and entertainment.
