Ashley Gooden is a General Assignment Reporter and Weekend Evening Anchor at ABC 15.
Ashley was born in Birmingham, Alabama and lived there until graduating from high school. She went to Tennessee State University in Nashville, Tennessee for her freshman year and decided to transfer to Auburn University to start her sophomore year. While at Auburn, Ashley was a reporter at the campus news station, Eagle Eye, where she learned many of the skills she needed to start her journalism career. After completing her Summer internship with Channel 2 Action News in Atlanta, Georgia, Ashley graduated from Auburn University with a Bachelor's degree in Radio, Television, and Film in August of 2014...War Eagle!
Ashley's first job in the business was at KTAB in Abilene, Texas. She covered a variety of stories and while she was many hours from home, she enjoyed what West Texas had to offer, especially all of the new friends and experiences in the "Big Country".
When Ashley isn't working, she loves to dance, listen and sing along to music, spend time with friends, and is excited to be able to spend more time at the beach. Ashley would love to travel the world someday and eventually become fluent in Spanish.
