Tracey Early Tracey Early

Tracey grew up in Fredericksburg, Va. as the youngest of four siblings. Her brothers and sister quickly taught her to fight for her share (especially at the dinner table), which helped to drive her appetite for news at an early age. Armed with a home video camera, she recorded her first newscast at the age of 10!

Tracey is an Elon University graduate where she played Division I soccer. During college, she interned for FOX 8 WGHP in High Point, N.C. She also interned for the Late Night with Conan O'Brien show in New York and worked for the CIA in Langley, Va.

Tracey landed her first job in TV news as a Reporter at WMBB, an ABC affiliate in Panama City, Fla. where her assignments ranged from traveling with the Commander of First Air Force to military bases in Canada, to racing an 8-year-old in a mile run on live television. In 2004, Tracey joined News 14 Carolina in Raleigh, N.C. as a reporter, but was promoted to Weekend Anchor in 2005 and Weekday Morning Anchor in August 2006. One of her most memorable assignments there was witnessing a state execution.

Tracey joined the WSPA team in December 2011 as the Problem Solver Reporter, and Weekday Evening Anchor for the 5:30 and 7pm newscasts. She lives in Greenville and is very excited to experience all that the Upstate has to offer!

As an avid athlete and food lover, Tracey enjoys running, basketball, tennis and snowboarding... and discovering new eateries in the area. If you see her out, please say hello!

Tracey anchors the 5:30 and 7 newscasts and is the Problem Solver reporter.
