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.

On Wednesday, Jan. 4, the National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for most of Northern Colorado. Going into Thursday, the alert has been canceled for some Front Range counties, but southern and mountain communities continue to see large accumulations. Temperatures are expected to stay in the single digits for most of Thursday, with a drop below zero after dark.
