Ashleigh Crowter is the sports reporter/presenter for BBC Wales Today, Wales' flagship television news programme. Ashleigh is regularly seen on screen, following Wales' top sport stars around the world.
In the last five years, Ashleigh Crowter's been on the spot with live reports from the World's biggest events. Ashleigh has covered the last two Olympic Games in Beijing and London, the rise of Wales' Grand Slam champions at the World Cup in New Zealand and a golden period for Welsh football - with two promotions to the Premier League, cup success and Gareth Bale's world record transfer to Real Madrid.
"There's never been a better time to be a Welsh sports reporter," Ashleigh says. "Who would have believed ten years ago that Wales would have hosted the Ryder Cup, an Ashes test and Premier League football all in the space of a few years?"
Ashleigh Crowter is also proud of his support for minority sports, providing welcome coverage to successful Welsh athletes whose achievements deserve wider recognition.
Ashleigh started his career as a trainee with BBC News before moving into sports journalism. Ashleigh's big-break came in 2008, succeeding the late and much-missed Welsh broadcasting legend Bob Humphrys on Wales Today.
Ashleigh Crowter has also presented the Welsh Open snooker for BBC television and pops up occasionally on BBC Radio Wales as a cricket commentator.
Ashleigh Crowter is a genial and professional host for events and conferences. Ashleigh has worked at sports dinners and business awards ceremonies around Wales and also chaired political debates and election hostings.
Ashleigh is also much in demand as an after dinner speaker. After reporting on such an exciting period for Welsh sport, Ashleigh has a wealth of entertaining stories from a life spent following our top sport stars.
In his spare time, Ashleigh plays cricket and tennis, although rugby will always be his first love, having played and watched the game in Wales, England and France.
