GREENSBORO, N.C. — Anchor Tracey McCain wakes you up every weekday morning from 4:30 to 8:30 a.m. on WFMY News 2’s The Good Morning Show.
Tracey brings her warm smile and 20 years of news journalism to WFMY News 2, but the job’s biggest thrill is the location. Tracey is incredibly happy to be home in North Carolina, broadcasting news in the community where she grew up.
The University of Connecticut graduate got her start at WSHM in Springfield, MA, and then later at WFSB in Hartford, CT. While in the Northeast, Tracey covered mostly crime and politics. Her reports helped shed light on several political scandals and crime rings. Her effort and skill led to several regional award nominations in journalism.
While Tracey’s career was certainly in bloom up North, home was calling and she jumped at the chance to report at the station she grew up watching: WFMY. Tracey keeps busy volunteering for several Triad organizations and serves as a motivational speaker and role model for young people in the community.
Tracey is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. Tracey has been twice nominated for Emmy Awards for her involvement in the community service program Read 2 Succeed. In January 2015, her hard work paid off when she won an Emmy.
Tracey was voted one of the Triad's top anchors in the News & Record's 2019 readers-choice awards. The following year, she was named Black Inc. Magazine's Top 40 under 40 in North Carolina.
When Tracey’s not at work, she enjoys every minute with her family. Tracey and her husband of seven years have three young children.
