GAB Channel Staff

Jason Smith
Jason Smith is the Chief Operating Officer for The Greater Ashland Beacon, handling all of our IT needs and offering website and ad design expertise. Like his wife, Kimberly, Jason has been with The Beacon since day one. As of late, Jason is also trying to reach our viewers through new outlets, such as videography.

Jason was born and raised in Ashland, and now comes to visit regularly as he lives in Virginia with his wife. He hopes to retire in Ashland once his children are finished in school. Mr. Smith also prides himself on being the silliest and most laid back of the four owners, often pulling the pranks and making everyone laugh when they are together. For fun, this creative guy enjoys playing guitar and performing magic.
