Tracee Carrasco’s Biography
Tracee Carrasco was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on May 29, 1993, to parents, Gil and Cheryl Carrasco. Her father, Gil, is a US Marine Corps veteran and her mom, Cheryl, holds a Ph.D. from Azusa Pacific University; the same school Tracee later attended. We’re not sure if she’s an only child, but she seems to be the only one lavishing praise on the Carrasco’s on her social media feeds. Carrasco spent much of her formative years in her city of birth, Honolulu, and Southern California. Although we have no tabs about where she high schooled, we know however that she attended Azusa Pacific University; a Southern California based private evangelical Christian college. There, she acquired a Bachelors of Arts degree in Communication Studies and minored in Marketing.
Tracee Carrasco had her first brush with professional broadcasting during her school days as an intern. At the time, she interned at Los Angeles-based news stations such as KABC-TV Channel 7, KCBS-TV Channel 2 and KCAL-TV Channel 9. In addition, she also worked as a field reporter and fill-in anchor at the Torrance-based network, CitiCable 3. As she admits, these experiences furnished her for a successful broadcast journalism career.
Carrasco began her professional career back in February of 2010 with Minnesota-based FOX KQDS network as a weekend anchor and weekday reporter. Her main work was to cover the happenings in Wisconsin, Michigan and Upper Minnesota area. Carrasco’s weekend broadcasts for KQDS attracted an Upper-Midwest-Emmy-nomination in 2011 for Best Weekend Newscast. Her news reporting for KQDS garnered two Upper Midwest Emmy nominations in the categories Public / Current / Community Affairs—for her work on the “Honest Northland Series”—and Historic / Cultural / Nostalgic—for her incredible work on “A Tribute to Ben Larson: Missionary Killed in Haiti’s Earthquake.”
After over a year with KQDS, Tracee Carrasco, left Minnesota for Tennesse in August 2011 to continue her career with the Nashville-based WKRN News 2; an ABC affiliate. In 2013 however, she moved to New York to go work with WCBS-TV and WLNY 10/55. There, she worked as a reporter covering the tri-state area. In May 2017, Carrasco joined Fox Business Network, and began work as a general assignment reporter. She also appears on the “Mornings with Maira” show. As of this writing, Carrasco reports for New York-based WCBS-TV; where she works with Alice Gainer and Mary Calvi. Her over ten years of broadcasting has seen her publish articles on various newspapers and magazines such as the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, Equities Magazine and Duluth News Tribune. Carrasco has appeared on HLN with CNN’s Nancy Grace.

Tracee Carrasco is taken! Yes. She’s madly in love with one Rodrigo. Although she’s been quite tightlipped about it, time broke her defenses. It came in a social media post dated February 4, 2018, when Carrasco posted a picture of herself and her man vacationing on a boat in Oranjestad, Aruba. Rodrigo too had been sharing photos about their love trips on his own social media handle for a while. One of which captured their vacation in Copacabana beach in Rio De Janeiro back in August 2017. Rodrigo finally popped the question on May 18, 2018, during a boat ride. As expected, the pics of her ringed finger graced her Instagram handle only days later.
