After joining Discourse Media in 2014 and working on multiple projects with the team, Ash Kelly completed the Jeani Read-Michael Mercer Fellowship at CBC Vancouver where she produced a six-part radio series, InDignity: Disabilities, Freedom and the Fight for Security.
That series was awarded the Adrienne Clarkson award for diversity reporting by the Radio Television Digital News Association in April 2016.
Her work has been published in Maclean’s and The Globe and Mail. In the summer of 2016, Ash will temporarily call Prince Rupert, B.C. home while hosting CBC Radio’s Daybreak North.
