Description

Tracy Grimshaw, host of the Nine Network's top-rating A Current Affair, is instantly recognisable to millions of Australians. Long-regarded as one of Australia's most prominent and skilled television interviewers Tracy has graced our small screens for 30 years reporting on some of the country's most significant news events. The Walkley Award winner has reported on everything from the devastating 1983 Ash Wednesday bushfires to the Beaconsfield mining disaster and conducted uncompromising interviews with celebrities such as the rogue chef Gordon Ramsay and controversial rugby league star Matthew Johns. Tracy's hard-won reputation and confronting style has endeared her to Australians, many of whom feel they know her. And yet, few know the story of Tracy's rise to fame from a humble suburban upbringing. Her journey from shy cadet to network superstar is one of the most inspiring and compelling stories in Australian television, a journey that is funny, insightful, and at times, deeply moving. In her own words, she tells the truth about her start in television, her encounters with the rich and the famous and her highs and lows in a life lived with passion and determination.show more
