Ashley Fitzwater - KAUZ-TV: Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

Ashley Fitzwater

Ashley Fitzwater, a native of Wichita Falls, anchors the 5, 6, and 10p Newscasts. She joined the Newschannel 6 team in February 2002.

Ashley  is proud to work in a community that she has called home her entire life and loves being a part of a daily broadcast that looks out for its viewers.

The February Freeze was an unbelievable Winter Storm that brought dangerous ice and heavy snow, shutting the town for days. But with Texoma's help Newschannel 6 was able to bring you coverage from all angles.  Ashley said that event is just one of many reasons she is proud to be apart of the Newschannel 6 Team.

     "Our newsroom broke into 12 hour shifts to make sure we were bringing Texoma the latest on power outages, shelters, road closures, and what they could expect in the form of when to get back out on the roads. The positive response and countless words of thanks from the community after the coverage, and the involvement from viewers during, makes those long hours more than worth it! That's why I got into this business and I am proud to be a part of a team that truly has the community's best interest at heart. Texoma has always stepped up to help others in a time of need, and the February Freeze and the Blanket and Coat Drive held during that event was just one more reason I love this area and am proud to call it home." said Ashley Fitzwater.

Ashley graduated from Midwestern State University, in May 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mass Communications.

While at MSU she anchored and reported for MSU 2 TV "Campus Watch", and won several awards in Texas Intercollegiate Press Association Competitions. Ashley even completed her internship right here at Newschannel 6.

Ashley says her passion is reporting and anchoring the news, and loves that every day is something new. She also loves being able to meet new people in the community. So be sure to say hello or e-mail her with any new ideas.

In her spare time Ashley enjoys watching movies, singing at her church, and spending time with all of her family, especially her husband, son Caleb, and baby girl, Chloe.
