Tracy is from Springfield, Ohio. Coming from a musical family (her dad played guitar and an uncle played with country legend Bobby Bare), it wasn’t a surprise when her musical talents began to surface as early as the second grade. She played a few musical instruments, too, but her dream was to be a singer. Although becoming a mom changed all that, she still wanted to be close to music.
In the summer of 1991, she started learning about radio and being a deejay from the PD at Sarasota’s Oldies 106.3 WSRZ-FM. A few months later, she got her first gig in the business, joined Venice country station FM 92.1 WCTQ, and was put on the air that very night. Shortly afterwards, she moved to middays and stayed with the station until 2003.
But her departure from WCTQ didn’t mean she left parent company Clear Channel. Rather, Tracy moved to middays on lite rock sister station WDDV-FM, while continuing to serve as the public files director for all six stations in the Sarasota cluster.
In 2006, she became the Southeast Promotions Director for former Arista Records promoter Ed Dorsey, who had approached her about working with his company, TheDorseyTouch, in Clearwater. After the economy went sour in Florida, she moved to Texas in late 2010.
Today (2012), Tracy is a purchasing agent for Boomerang Tube, a manufacturer of steel OCTG and line pipe, and would love to work in radio again if the right opportunity came along.
