Ashley Kringen

KFOR-TV Reporter

Ashley Kringen joins KFOR-TV from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where she was a one-man-band reporter.
Prior to reporting in South Dakota, Ashley worked as an Assignment Editor at FOX 5 in Las Vegas.
She received her degree in Journalism and Media Studies at the University of Las Vegas.
One of her favorite hobbies is working out Crossfit style, an intense program involving dynamic exercises with plyometric jumps, Olympic style lifting and endurance obstacles.
When not on the job, she can be found spending time outside, exploring the city, seeing movies and trying new restaurants.

Life Goal – To take life one day at a time, savor every moment and have no regrets.
Favorite TV Show – The Newsroom on HBO because I enjoy watching my field of work unfold in a drama series along with seeing how TV portrays National news I’ve been a part of covering in the past, such as the Gabrielle Giffords shooting and the capture of Osama bin Laden.
Favorite Car – A VW Bug convertible, which I had for my second car but had to get rid of it because it was a Lemon.
Happiest moment in my life was--- Getting the job offer to start my career as a television personality in my hometown of Sioux Falls, SD.
2nd Happiest moment in my life was---Landing a Reporter job in OKC!
4 notable persons you'd invite to dinner – Oprah Winfrey, Bernard Hopkins, Marilyn Monroe and Anne Frank.
Favorite food – My mother’s Filipino egg rolls with sticky rice, nothing beats mom’s home cooking!
Pets– I don’t have a pet, but hope to adopt a fuzzy friend this year.
Knew you wanted to be a reporter when … I watched videos back from when I was a kid, dancing, singing and always wanting to be the star of the show.
Best movie of all time – I’m the worst movie critic ever because I enjoy every movie but if I had to choose, it would be Armageddon (yes, I cry every time).
Hardest part of my job – Watching and covering tragic stories involving loss of life or extreme terror.
Favorite holiday - Thanksgiving. Another excuse to have my mom’s home cooking as well as give thanks to everything I’m blessed with such as family, friends and experiences I’ve had in my life-time.
People are surprised when I tell them…my Nationality and that I was born in Las Vegas, grew up in South Dakota, then moved back to Las Vegas for college.
I like to listen to… country music & Journey!!
Favorite Book – The Pact, by Jodie Picoult.
I'd jump at the chance to…be the host of a traveling show, ex
