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. As a student at Loyola, she received the “A. Louis Read Electronic Media Award” for outstanding journalism work. 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.

When asked why she chose a career in broadcast journalism, Ashley says "because the industry is constantly changing. No two days are ever the same in this business, which is both exciting and challenging."

Ashley enjoys yoga, modeling and cooking in her leisure time. Ashley considers herself a foodie, and says the best part about cooking is "seeing people enjoy what I've made from the heart."
