Rogers was the news director of WMC from 2007-11. She left the station in 2011 to be the vice president and general manager of KAIT, Raycom’s ABC affiliate in Jonesboro, Ark.

“Tracey’s instinct, Memphis market knowledge and proven dedication to her community are her strengths,” Nick Simonette, group vice president for Raycom Media, said in a statement. “She has so much love and respect for the people of the Mid-South and the legacy of WMC-TV 5.”
