Ashley Jefcoat

Digital Producer and Editor

My career in radio began when I was about 10 and accompanied my father to the local country music station to listen to him record commercials. Inspired, I recorded my own radio shows -- using a CD player, a cassette tape recorder and a lot of free time -- and fancied myself pretty good at the whole thing.

I come to KUNC by way of Jackson, Mississippi, where I worked as the digital media director at Mississippi Public Broadcasting and co-host for a weekly call-in tech show, Everyday Tech. While there, I did a huge variety of things: social media, web development, promotional writing and editing, script writing and production, among others. I also served as the chair for the National Educational Television Association's communications council, an organization for professionals in public media.

I attended the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science. In 2009, I received a B.A. in psychology from Millsaps College. I've worked in technology since I was a freshman there -- and have been tinkering with it for longer, thanks to a mother who loves all things tech.

I now live in Greeley with my wife, two cats and a dog. In my free time, I play video games and board games, read way too much and knit.
