My name is Ashley Bellman, and I am a television personality specializing in broadcast media who always strives to demonstrate passion, persistence and creativity in each of my endeavors. I attended New York University, where I was able to hone my broadcasting skills both in front and behind the camera. NYU Tonight gave me the opportunity to work every angle of news production and conduct interviews that not only featured NYU students, but also renowned talent such as actor/screenwriter Paul Rudd. My double major in political science intensified my passion for world news, and gave me the opportunity to explore the anatomy of several European countries while I studied abroad in Florence, Italy.
During college, I interned for Fox News Channel, the top ranking cable news network in the county, where I produced segments for their national morning show, Fox and Friends. It was here that I not only pitched stories alongside producers and editors in the nation’s number one market, but was also featured in an on-air interview and anchored a live sports report. Before this, an internship at MTV gave me the pre and post-production skills that are essential in any studio.
As a reporter at FOX Toledo, I spent two years working both in front of and behind the camera. I started as “The Face of FOX Toledo, appearing live on air, in commercials, and at community events. I then began anchoring morning news cut-ins and reporting on everything from local crime to human interest.
At 19 Action News in Cleveland, Ohio my job description included everything from general assignment reporting, to live breaking news reporting from the 19 Action News Chopper. I also helped Clevelanders get where they needed to be with my up to the minute traffic reports every morning and afternoon.
I am very excited that my path has led me back to the East Coast, where I grew up. Now you can watch me on QVC, where I am an On Air Guest for the American luxury brand, Dooney & Bourke.
