After several years in New England, Ashley is thrilled to be back in her home state! Ashley grew up right outside of Philadelphia, and joined the Fox 43 news team as a reporter in March 2018. She is always eager to learn more about the community and the people in it.

Ashley graduated Boston University in 2015, and began her career as a reporter and anchor in Bangor, Maine. In Maine, she had the opportunity to interview Susan Sarandon as she rallied in favor of Sen. Bernie Sanders. She also covered the longest man-hunt in Maine history and the several-month search for a missing man.

Ashley is also an adrenaline junkie. When she wasn’t covering politics or breaking news, you could find her skydiving or entering the state’s scariest haunted houses, all ON AIR! She loves having fun, spending time with friends, family, and her pug mix, Theodore. When she’s not at work, she is usually watching movies, running, or traveling.

Most importantly, Ashley loves to tell the stories that matter to you. She is a people-person, and thinks the stories with the greatest impact are the stories about individuals in the community.

Feel free to reach out to her with any story ideas or news tips! She would love to hear from you….apaul@fox43.com. You can also keep up with her on Facebook and Twitter at @ashleypaulnews.

But the future of the water system is not as clear, after a presentation from the Steelton Borough Authority pushes to sell it. The water fund is currently $11.6 million in debt, and that will only continue to get worse. As it stands, the water system […]

    The rain couldn’t stop a block party at Sunshine Park in Harrisburg Tuesday night, and it sure did make a splash. “Free milkshakes and free stuff, and just fun!” said Angela Gillis, a Harrisburg resident. But beyond the good food, music, games, and face painting, the hosts of this party also had a goal in mind. “People believe there’s a divide, a separation. I want to show them that police officers are human just like them, they go to work […]

  • Increase in sinkholes following heavy rains and flooding

    There has been an increase in sinkholes around the area lately, and you can blame the skies for that. “In this area where we live, in South Central PA, we have a lot of limestone in the ground. And limestone tends to erode over time through water,” said Greg Penny, PennDOT spokesman. And with last weeks excessive rain and flooding, the limestone has been exposed to more water than normal. Eventually the limestone erodes to the point where it collapses, […]
