Tracy Humphrey is part of the Atlanta Alive morning news team, giving you the headlines, breaking news and what everyone will be talking about today.
No stranger to the South, Tracy was born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama. She is a huge college football fan, having graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and she also holds a Masters in Broadcast Journalism from Syracuse University.
From lake effect snow storms, wildfires, hurricanes to flash floods, she's seen it all and loved every minute of it. Prior to moving back closer to home, Tracy worked for our sister station in Sacramento, California at KXTV as the weekend morning Meteorologist and before that she forecasted weather for the city by the bay, San Francisco, CA at KPIX.
Tracy worked 4 years as the weekend weather anchor for WNYW, the Fox affiliate in New York City. She was also a feature reporter for Good Day New York and produced a weekly segment, "Living Large", highlighting multi-million dollar real estate in New York City.
It's her passion for forecasting and live reporting that has led her to an exciting career. It all started in Savannah, Georgia as the weekday weather anchor for WJCL. Afterwards, she worked for WTVH in Syracuse, NY as the weekend weather anchor and weekday weather reporter. In 2001, Humphrey then moved to WKBW in Buffalo, NY as the weekday morning weather anchor. While working in Buffalo, NY, Tracy performed a bungee jump during the station's morning newscast. It was the bungee jump, that caught the eye of the news director at WPHL-TV in Philadelphia. He hired Tracy as the weekend weather anchor/weekend feature reporter for the station.
