THIS IS EPISODE 181 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Ashley Brewer covers sports in Los Angeles for ABC7 as a reporter and anchor. She attended the University of Southern California, where she was a member of the varsity women’s swimming team and competed in the 2012 Olympic Trials (100-meter backstroke).
After graduating from USC, Brewer became a college football sideline reporter for Cox 7 Arizona. She then became the weekend sports anchor at KGUN-9, the ABC affiliate in Tucson, Ariz. In her two years at KGUN, Brewer covered all professional and college sports, as well as Super Bowl XLIX and the 2016 College Football National Championship Game.
Her love of sports comes from growing up in a family with five Division-I athletes. Her oldest brother, Charles, was a pitcher for the Diamondbacks, her brother, Chase, played baseball at UCLA, and her younger brother, Connor, played QB at the University of Virginia. Her younger sister, Abby, played volleyball at USC. Ashley’s mother, Deborah Pyburn Brewer, was also a television anchor in Phoenix for almost 10 years before leaving to start a family.
On this episode of the podcast, Brewer shares what it’s like to cover sports in Los Angeles, growing up in a family of elite athletes, where her faith began to take shape, what Jesus and Church look like in Hollywood, and how she stays grounded in her faith through Matthew 5:16.
