Asher Fusco (Reporter/Web producer)

I started working as a Web producer and overnight reporter for in March 2009. My duties include keeping the Web site up and running smoothly and covering breaking news during overnight shifts.

I am a graduate of Kansas University, where I got my start in journalism covering KU and high school athletics at the Topeka Capital-Journal.

Away from the News Center, I spend most of my time at the gym, creating music or exploring Lawrence.
