Ashley Nickels joins CHR WRQX/Washington, D.C. for nights. Nickels heads eastward from Sacramento, where she most recently handled nights at CHR KDND. WRQX PD Gillette comments, “Ashley is the archetypal 'night jock' for the Millennial generation. She doesn’t just live, eat and drink the lifestyle, she is the lifestyle. Ashley is the enigmatic embodiment of what the audience craves today: A dynamic entertainer wrapped in a self-effacing BFF that will do shots with you till closing and then help you Uber home.”
