Ashley Fruge - Traffic Anchor
Ashley Fruge is a traffic anchor and reporter for WBRZ News 2 in early 2016.
Ashley hails from New Orleans where she graduated from Archbishop Chapelle High School, and would go on to get her undergraduate degree from Loyola University where she graduated cum laude.

After graduation, she took her first job with WWL-TV as a desk assistant, but quickly transitioned to a position as on-air anchor fill-in.
