Thank you for visiting my blog! I'm Tracy Kornet, a news anchor/reporter at WSMV-TV, the NBC affiliate in Nashville, Tennessee.You can watch me weekdays on News4 at 4, 5, 6 & 10pm.
My television news career began in Lexington, Kentucky. I later moved to Phoenix to launch and host my own talk show. We won dozens of Emmy awards, and I absolutely loved the creativity required. But on September 11, 2001, I was summoned to the news desk for breaking news and knew I could never leave it again.

Some of most meaningful television moments include three presidential visits to Nashville, and anchoring alongside CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley and the legendary Bob Schieffer during our coverage of the 50th Anniversary of the Assassination of JFK in Dallas. I was also honored to conduct a 90-minute, standing-room-only Q&A with Schieffer called "An Evening with Bob Schieffer: Remembering JFK."
My favorite part of the job is field anchoring live events. I love giving viewers a front-row seat from anywhere the action is--especially if it's a major sports event. Two NCAA championship runs with the Kentucky Wildcats, World Series coverage of the Texas Rangers and Arizona Diamondbacks, a Dallas Mavericks National Championship, and the 2011 Super Bowl in Dallas are just a few of my favorite assignments.

I'm also a wife and mother of three amazing kids who play/have played college basketball. My youngest stands a little more than 7 feet tall and plays for the New York Knicks. In fact, cheering him on during his 4 years at Vanderbilt University is why we moved to Nashville from Dallas in the fall of 2014.

I'm a member of the current class of Leadership Nashville and a passionate volunteer with the Sexual Assault Center of Nashville, for which I'm currently serving as secretary of the Board of Trustees and a former co-chair. I am a frequent emcee for community events and for several years was the lead singer of our station rock band in Dallas.
When it comes to free time, there is nothing I love more than cheering on my children.

This is how I often look during a close game.
I also confess to frequent high kicks. I can't help myself. I crave frequent travel. I've always had an adventuresome spirit. In fact, I left college my sophomore year to work as Cinderella at Tokyo Disneyland and tour with a Japanese pop star.
I'm in the process of trying to finish my first book, learn Spanish, travel as much as I can, and hope to never, ever stop learning.
