Tracy Sellers

Tracy Sellers joined us in 2003 after spending nearly three years with Good Day Sacramento, then produced by KMAX Channel 31. She also worked in internships with the Sacramento Kings of the NBA and with Sacramento TV stations KMAX, KCRA and KXTV.

Tracy wanted to go into the field of journalism from the time she was a little girl, when she watched Kermit the Frog and was instantly inspired by his "breaking news stories" and his captivating interviews. She thought, "Hey, if a frog can do it, so can I!"

Tracy grew up mainly in the Bay Area, but also lived in Southern California for a short while and now calls Sacramento her home. Living throughout the state has taught her to appreciate the uniqueness and diversity of California and she loves the opportunity to visit many regions of the state. She says her favorite part of reporting for California Bountiful is meeting new people and traveling to places and events that she otherwise wouldn't get a chance to visit.

She is a graduate of California State University, Sacramento, where she studied communications, journalism and history.
