Ashley Knight

Ashley Knight is a weekend anchor and digital journalist at WKRG News 5.

Ashley joined the News 5 team in November 2012 after working as an anchor and reporter for six years at the FOX-affiliate in Albany, Georgia.

She began her news career behind the camera at WOFL, the FOX-affiliate in Orlando, Florida. She has deep roots in the South with an Alabama-native grandfather and a sixth-generation Georgia-native mother. A cum laude graduate of the University of Florida, she roots for the Gators, but she is excited to be reporting the stories that make a difference in Alabama.

During her career, Ashley has covered devastating tornadoes and hurricanes, the Stanley Cup playoffs, and the Republican National Convention where she filed live reports for fourteen television stations across the country.

Ashley loves the Mobile area, the Gulf Coast cuisine, and most especially the people. In her free time, she enjoys photography and reading. She would love to get to know you and hear your stories too.
