Ashli Sims joined News On 6 in March 2002. Sims grew up in Tulsa and graduated from Booker T. Washington High School, near the top of her class. She left the Sooner State to attend Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, earning a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism.

At News On 6, Sims started as a part-time associate producer and was later promoted to field producer before becoming a night side reporter.

Sims' mom is a teacher and is part of the reason why she is so passionate about reporting on education. She's been honored with the Marshall Gregory Award for year-round education coverage several times.

Dedicated to education both on and off the air, Sims volunteers at several local schools. She represents Northwestern University in local recruiting and is on the board of the Janada L. Batchelor Foundation for Children, an organization which operates an orphanage for girls in Tanzania, East Africa.

When Sims isn't working, she enjoys catching up with friends and family, oil painting, reading and shopping.
