A social force, Ashley has earned attention for filing the first-ever Snapchat interview with a Senator, an Instagram exclusive interview with a Senator, playing Cards Against Humanity with members of congress, and repurposing Jimmy Kimmel's series of celebrities reading “mean tweets" with Congressmen and Congresswomen on Capitol Hill among other so-called 'viral' hits. Prior to joining CNN, Codianni was director of news video for Mashable, lead the Washington, DC bureau of NowThis News, and was a producer for MSNBC's Way Too Early and Morning Joe. At NowThis she oversaw the company's original and sharable political content and was instrumental in developing social mobile video for the outlet's political coverage.
