If Ron Burgundy and Ellen Degeneres had a love-child, Ashley Linder would surely be it. Equal parts seasoned broadcaster and engaging comedic host, Ashley blends professionalism with a warm and authentic personality in all that she does.
She got her start behind the mic on WTOP covering the nations roadways and quickly became Washington DC’s youngest broadcast news anchor at 21 on NBC4. Thirsty for more than the nightly news could offer, she independently honed her hosting skills covering events all over the DC Metro area. From The National SeaPerch Competition to various Drag King/Queen shows to DC Fashion Week, Ashley worked (and werked) it all. In 2011, Ashley traded the wild world of nightly news for comedy and crafting- much to her parents chagrin. She began performing throughout DC, Virginia, and Maryland (Phasefest Queer Arts & Music Festival 2011, Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse, Riot Act Comedy Theater) while simultaneously crafting one-of-a-kind accessories for friends and family via her online Instagram store, @shop_linderland. In 2013, she moved to California to continue her content creating dreams and worked behind the scenes as an associate producer on LOGO’s “That Time of the Month” as well as on Comedy Central’s “Six Guys and a Car”.
Ashley recently moved back from Los Angeles with her fish, Coelacanth, where she continues to write, perform, and craft a dreamworld.
