Ashley Ahearn / KUOW

Job Title

Multimedia journalist, based in Seattle at KUOW Public Radio


Most of the time we don't know where Ashley is. That's because she's usually managed to get lost or to drop her means of communication into one waterbody or another. As a newcomer to the region, Ashley brings a healthy dose of incredulity about what goes on around here. "Wait, you truck fish around dams?" or "You grow fish in a hatchery and then set them free into rivers? Is that kind of like keeping chickens?" As a transplant from Los Angeles most recently (where she got her masters in science journalism at USC) she's tended to report on rivers that are nicely cemented in, so she's very excited about all the freerange waterways up here. Radio will always be Ashley's first love (she got her start working for the show Living on Earth on Public Radio International) but she's pretty excited about this whole "multimedia" thing everyone's talking about.

Ashley's been known to develop crushes on inanimate objects such as rivers, hip waders and reliable recording equipment. At scientific conferences she sneaks pictures of the highly fashionable forms of footwear on parade, with special attention to the combination of wool socks and tevas often sported by ecologists and biologists. She then tweets those pictures, so follow her on Twitter.

We like Ashley because we know that even though she's often MIA, she always comes back with a story.
