Australian television journalist and news presenter Tracey Curro began her career as a reporter on regional television in Shepparton, Victoria. A year later she returned to her home state to join National Nine News Brisbane as a reporter and weekend news presenter, before being head-hunted by Channel 10 to present Eyewitness News Melbourne and Ten Morning News nationally.

She moved away from daily reporting in 1991, spending the next six years travelling the world as a reporter for the acclaimed science and technology show "Beyond 2000" on Seven, and then as a reporter on "60 Minutes" where she is best known for eliciting Pauline Hanson's 'please explain'. She then turned her attention to documentary film-making, producing several documentaries for the Nine and Seven networks and international broadcasters.

Already a familiar face to Australian viewers, Tracey rejoined the National Nine News team in Melbourne in 2003 as a news presenter, and was then heard on 774 ABC Melbourne filling in on Morning and Drive shifts.

In 2006, she took up the position of General Manager of Communications at Sustainability Victoria, the Victorian Government's leading agency on climate change, and was selected and trained as an Al Gore Climate Change Ambassador in 2007.
