Peter Doocy

Peter Doocy is a Fox News general assignment reporter who is widely known as the son of famed Fox News host Steve Doocy.

Early years

Peter Doocy was born in the United States on July 21, 1987, in Washington, D.C. His nationality is American, and his zodiac sign is Cancer. He is a Christian who belongs to the White ethnicity and practices Christianity. Furthermore, he is currently 35 years old.

Steve Doocy and Kathy Gerrity are his parents’ names. His father is a best-selling book and an American network television presenter for Fox News. Mary Doocy and Sally Doocy are his two sisters. Mary, Peter’s sister, is a counsel for the House Oversight Committee and formerly worked as a legislative assistant in Congressman Mike Pompeo’s office. Sally, his younger sister, studied advertising at ‘Southern Methodist University’ and now works for ‘Fox News’ as a sales planner.


When Peter was in middle school, he used to play baseball. He grew raised on the outskirts of New York City. As a result, the father and kid connect over ‘Yankee’ games. They now bond through beer and golf, however. Peter has always acknowledged his father’s influence on his profession as a journalist. Peter considers all of Steve’s advice to be “invaluable,” and the manner Steve first introduced him to the profession was really useful to him.

When Peter was four years old, Steve introduced him to the newsroom for the first time at a ‘Take Your Child to Work Day event. It was his first time on network television. Peter gained a better understanding of the level of commitment required for the job as a result of his exposure. Steve instructed Peter on his first day at work to roll up his sleeves all the time to give the impression that he was working.

While broadcasting live from the ‘White House,’ Peter surprised Steve with a Father’s Day gift in 2018. He gave his father a set of John Robert, the 17th Chief Justice of the United States, business cards. As a child, Peter was involved in an accident while riding on a lawnmower with Steve. To Kathy’s disgust, the father-son combo has bonded on lawn-mower rides ever then.


While obtaining his bachelor’s degree in political science, Peter attended ‘Villanova University.’ He interned for ‘Fox News’ as a ‘Palestra’ (a Pennsylvania sports arena) reporter. Peter’s parents were initially concerned that he would join ‘Fox’ so soon after graduating from ‘Villanova.’ It was weird because both Steve and Kathy had successful television careers, yet they didn’t want the same for Peter. They desired that he obtain an MBA or a legal degree.

Career and Workplace Life

In April 2008, Peter took part in MSNBC’s “Hardball College Tour” with Chris Matthews, when he was chosen to interview former Arizona senator John McCain regarding Hillary Clinton’s drinking habits, pointing to a photo of her with a whiskey shot, toasting with some voters. That morning, the photo was shown on the main page of the newspaper. Though it was a hazardous question to ask, it was well worth it because it led to a career in news reporting. Peter posed the topic in a witty way that entertained not just the audience but even John.

Peter covered the 2008 presidential election before starting his professional career as a general assignment reporter in New York City with the ‘Fox News channel in 2009. He was assigned to cover the Midwest floods in 2011. Following then, he covered additional important issues such as former Vice President Dick Cheney’s heart transplant procedure (in 2012) and the Midwest floods. Later, he covered ‘Hurricane Sandy’ in 2012, as well as the presidential election that year.

The interview was featured in the highest-rated ‘Fox News documentary at the time.

On ‘Fox & Friends,’ Peter was assigned as Steve’s replacement in 2015. He is now working on presidential campaign campaigns for 2020. Peter has been tasked with covering the whole election season, with a particular focus on Senator Bernie Sanders’ campaigns.
