Morning Blend, Co-Host

Tucsonan Ashley Hawk got her start in television working both in front of and behind the camera after graduating from Loyola Marymount University with a double major in screenwriting and communications.

Hawk's online followers may know her best for her health and nutrition television content, including her Food Network show "How Healthy Happens." On the show Hawk, a registered dietician with a master's degree in nutritional science, helped her viewers discover healthy eating.

"I'm thrilled to enter this next chapter of 'The Morning Blend' with Ashley Hawk on the team," co-host Alex Steiniger said. "With so much to explore in Southern Arizona, her vibrancy and dietary expertise will add a whole new layer to the program."

Before taking her career to the national level, Hawk says she loved her time in Tucson, where she grew up riding horses in Tanque Verde wash.

"Growing up in Tucson I relied on KGUN 9 as my trusted community and news resource," said Hawk. "I am thrilled to bring my experience on board and become part of the Morning Blend team."

Hawk says it was working with children and families that initially inspired her career endeavors in nutrition.

Now a mother to a two-year-old girl, Hawk is able to relay her health and wellness knowledge to viewers using not only her educational background and media experience, but also the expertise that comes with raising a family.
