Ashley Cafaro joined the WENY News team as a reporter in March 2018.
Ashley, an Albany, New York native and graduate of Curry College in Milton, MA is thrilled to be back in her home state pursuing her passion as a journalist! She comes from a small station in southern West Virginia where she began her career. While reporting in the Mountain State, she covered President Donald Trump's two visits to West Virginia, as well as VP Mike Pence's visit. She also interviewed Bernie Sanders, Football Legend Randy Moss and Golf Legend Lee Trevino. Ashley also had the opportunity to cover many stories involving the coal industry as well as the opioid crisis in West Virginia.
When Ashley isn't reporting, you can find her exploring everything the Twin Tiers has to offer! She encourages her viewers to reach out to her with story ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org!
