7 thoughts on “Taryn Asher Bio, Age, Net Worth【 Jason Carr Wife 】Wiki, Parents, Home”

  1. I love Taryn. I would like to know where she got her large glasses she wore a couple of weeks ago. I have been looking for that kind for a while. Please let me know.

  2. I think Taryn is a terrible journalist as evidenced by her story about the hives being placed in Normandy Park in Royal Oak where she claimed that bees were dying from “pesticides and global warming”.

    A news reader she is, a journalist she is not. If she had studied an iota she would have found tracheal mites, nosema intestinal fungus, parasitic phorid flies, tobacco ringspot virus, and other pests were the larger cause of the honey bee decline.

    In fact, there are claims that the bee is not really in decline but just another left-wing attempt to assist in the, “We are killing the planet so we should pay more taxes” mantra.

  3. Taryn Asher is a very beautiful lady and carries herself very well. Great job young lady. Good luck in your future!

  4. First off I’d like to address Abe who also published a comment regarding Taryn. At least you could spell her name right and your comment is petty at best.
    I enjoyed your reporting when you were with WJRT and Googled your name to see where you’re at with your career. Nice to see your success you deserve it.
