Ashley Beck is a native of Siloam Springs -- the place she calls the best little town in Arkansas -- and is glad to be working in this area.

She graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. While in Phoenix, she worked in the newsroom at KPHO, the CBS affiliate, and worked in radio at KASC The Blaze.
She also spent a year and half in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, at WJFW as their weekend anchor. She learned the ropes of news, where she reported, produced, and was her own photographer... and did it all covered in snow.

Ashley returned home in 2004 and joined 5NEWS as a morning anchor. She is currently an evening anchor alongside Daren Bobb and Chief Meteorologist Garrett Lewis

When she's not chugging coffee and checking headlines, you can find her trying out new recipes in the kitchen, playing tennis, or spending time with her 8-pound schnoodle Coco.

You can find her on Facebook.
