Tracy Sears


Born and raised in Newport News, Virginia, Tracy fell in love with broadcast reporting at the age of 12 and began volunteering at her local news station when she was just 17.

While attending George Mason University, she interned for two years in the White House Press Room, assisting White House correspondents with news releases and credentials, and one year at News Channel 8 in the Washington D.C. Market. Tracy worked for two years as an anchor and reporter for KTEN-TV in Denison, Texas, before returning home to Virginia in 2000 to take a reporting and anchoring position with CBS 6.

Tracy currently reports part-time so she can spend more time at home with her two children.

Tracy has received awards from The Virginia Associated Press, The Virginia Association of Broadcasters, and The RTNDA. She is also the recipient of the 2004 National Edward R. Murrow Award and the 2012 Regional Emmy Award.
