Before finding her way to NBCDFW in Texas as quick as she could, Bash worked for WEWS in Cleveland, Ohio, where she covered everything from local crime, to large-scale protests, to the 2016 Republican National Convention, and the Cleveland Cavaliers 2016 NBA Championship and victory parade.

What colleges did she attend? Bash received her Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Journalism, Middle East Studies and Political Science from the University of Arkansas. She has a Master of Science in Journalism from Northwestern University (Evanston, Ill., near Chicago).
