Born in Melbourne, Alicia Gorey studied a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism at RMIT University, where she won the Ormsby Wilkins Memorial Award for Best Performance in Radio Journalism.
Her first media appearance was on Radio National's The Sports Factor and from there she joined the ABC in Mildura. Returning to Melbourne in July of 2002, Gorey was given the role of reporter and producer for Triple J’s morning program.
At the beginning of 2003, Gorey packed her bags for Perth to act as Triple J’s West Australian correspondent.
In April of that year, Gorey moved into the ABC newsroom and began reporting for radio, television news and Stateline. Her reporting role included specialist health reports.
Gorey first presented ABC Television News in late 2003 and two years later she was appointed to the position of weekend news anchor.
In February 2006, Gorey became the lead anchor for ABC Television News in Western Australia.
In addition to presenting news each night, Gorey took on a new role in ABC Radio in mid-2007. From 4pm until 6pm each day, she hosted the state-wide regional drive program on ABC Local Radio.
After more than five years in the West, Gorey decided to move back home to Melbourne, resigning from the ABC in May of 2008.
She joined the Nine news team in Melbourne as a reporter in June, 2008.
During her time at Nine, Gorey rates the Black Saturday bushfires in February of 2009 as both the biggest and most challenging story she has worked on.
In June 2010, she relocated to Sydney and has joined the TODAY and Weekend TODAY team as its news presenter.
In her spare time, Gorey enjoys playing tennis and watching football (her beloved Saints and Socceroos).
