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.

Chief Jason Campbell at South Central EMS in Dauphin County says paramedics would not be able to use the opiate-overdose reversal drug purchased by the state because the dosage did not comply with Department of Health policy.

  • Driverless vehicles soon to be tested in Central PA

    Imagine being stopped at a red light, turning your head to the car pulling up next to you, and seeing an empty drivers seat. “I think I’d freak out,” said Keri Miller, a Lancaster County resident. “I’d be a little bit stunned, wondering what was going on,” said Karen Landis, also from Lancaster County. But it may soon become the new normal, after PennDOT approved Lancaster County to be a testing location for automated vehicles, better known as driverless cars. […]

  • Behind the scenes look at mail processing center around the holidays

    After Santa’s elves finish making Christmas gifts for Central Pennsylvanians at the North Pole, they send those gifts to the Harrisburg Processing and Distribution Center. 120,000 of them, in one day alone. “All together through the holiday season, this machine will handle about 3 million pieces between Thanksgiving and Christmas,” said Karen Mazurkiewicz, spokesperson for the United States Postal Service. Mazurkiewicz says this time of year they say almost 50,000 more packages every day than a normal day the rest […]

  • Chambersburg community helps catch crooks on camera

    When Mattie Reed came into her Chambursburg salon one day a couple of years ago, she didn’t expect she would play a pivotal part in solving a crime. “I came in around 7:30 in the morning and I noticed a minivan parked out back. Not parked, kind of like cutting across the driveway,” said Reed. She says the car was running, but no one was inside. She also says a wheel was missing and she called the police. The first […]

  • Lancaster County police department blames cold for recent car thefts

    You know the feeling of getting in a cold car? First thing you do is crank that dial, and let the heat flow. “It’s cold out, and you can’t run the car when it’s cold. That’s hard on the car,” said one Lancaster County resident. Not to mention, it’s uncomfortable. Which is why some people we spoke with say they’ll sometimes start the car and go back inside until it heats up. “I’m confident that my truck will be where […]

  • Medical marijuana condition list could soon grow

    Cancer, autism, Chron’s Disease, epilepsy, Parkinson’s Disease- just some of the 21 medical conditions approved for medical marijuana. Some say the fact that it’s available at all is unacceptable. “The majority of them are going to be taking it for fun times,” said one York County man. But others think maybe 21 conditions just scratches the surface. “I think recreationally, it’s dangerous. But if you do it medically, there’s not really anything you need to be worried about,” said another. […]

  • Police search for suspects in two unrelated crimes happening in same neighborhood

    A homicide, a car crash, and the hunt for suspects- all taking place within two blocks in Harrisburg. The crazy part, police say, is that the incidents are unrelated. Harrisburg Police Sgt. Tyron Meik says Wednesday night was a case of being in the right place at the right time. The commotion began after police responded to reports of shots fired on the 1900 Block of Bellevue around 4:30 Wednesday afternoon. They found one person shot dead inside a home […]

  • Lancaster County porch pirate learns ironic lesson

    Kristi and Jake Kreider love to laugh. “We like to say that we love Jesus, and Jesus has a sense of humor, too,” said Kristi. And a lot of times, it’s humor, that helps their small business, Honeysuckle Shop, thrive. “We have little mini signs that say things like, ‘Wanna make out?,”fart zone,” we have one that has a picture of a coffee pot that says, ‘pot head.’” But that humor was hard to hold onto after two special-order shipments […]

  • New Pennsylvania sentencing tool aims to predict future crimes

    “Risk assessment is an instrument used to identify offenders that are at high risk or low risk of reoffending.” It’s that simple, says Mark Bergstrom, executive director of the Pennsylvania Commission on Sentencing. A tool, mandated by the Rendell administration back in 2010, will soon to be implemented in Pennsylvania. It aims to give judges a closer look at an offender’s situation so they can make more informed decisions when determining a sentence. “Maybe they’re drug dependent or have mental […]
