HudsonCounty60 is 60-second unscripted Instagram docuseries that features different local Hudson County businesses in a series of videos each week. Hosted and created by me, Ashley Hearon-Smith, and directed by SanMartin Garcia, the fast-paced show includes interviews, giveaways, and a corresponding blog.

The show, and this accompanying blog, were created out of a true love for our community. I want to show people what an amazingly diverse area we live and thrive in, filled with so many new and existing businesses that are often overshadowed by our neighbor to the east. My goal is to highlight the best businesses, restaurants, bars, people, events and stores in order to show there are just as many amazing things happening on our side of the Hudson. 

Having grown up in Weehawken, I am a longtime Hudson County-er, currently living in Union City with my Husband, Baby Boy and Pup. Using my 10 years of Television, Film and Web Programming production experience, along with my Hosting and Acting background, I hope to bring you the best 60 seconds of your day.
