Ashley Bailey Associate Producer, Morning Edition/Weekend Edition
Ashley Bailey is an Associate Producer for “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered” at KPCC.
Ashley came to Los Angeles from Northern California. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism from Humboldt State University and was news director of KRFH, the school’s student-run radio station. She has also had experience in print journalism, working at The Eureka Reporter and The Times-Standard in Eureka. She started at KPCC as a news intern in March of 2011 and, within several months, produced her first feature for air.
Less than a year later, she was brought on staff as an Assistant Producer and produced an award-winning piece on Hollywood stunt driver Jim Wilkey.
The following year, she was promoted again to an Associate Producer.
Ashley has been at the center of some of the biggest and busiest news days of the past year including the San Bernardino terror attacks, the day LAUSD closed all schools due to a threat and the procession for former First Lady Nancy Reagan.
Her reporting has been featured on NPR, as well as its member stations, KHSU and KQED.
In her spare time, Ashley enjoys taking her pitbull-mix, Lucy, to the beach, baking cookies and traveling to breweries to sample the latest in craft beer.
