Peter Doocy is one of the youngest reporters of Fox News Channel (FNC). He is the son of Steve Doocy who is also an anchor of the FNC. After the father’s legacy, the son now reports for general assignments.
Peter is a graduate holding a bachelor’s degree in Arts from the University of Villanova. In his college days Peter offered his services as a reporter to “The Palestra”, a partner site of FNC. Doocy was in lime light when he asked a question to J. McCain about the drinking of Hillary Clinton during the hardball tour of Chris Matthews. That very question was what granted him nearly instantly the title, “the well-known question of his own.” The exact question that Doocy asked McCain as a Villanova student was whether he thought Hillary Clinton “finally resorted to hitting the sauce because of unfavorable polling.” That and one other question prompted Matthews to joke, “we came here hoping for the best and we got two of the most wise-ass questions.” Shortly thereafter, his father congratulated him for the question on “Fox & Friends,” and Keith Olbermann named him one of the Worst Persons in the World. Steve Doocy then attacked Olbermann, calling him “a guy who picks on people’s children.”
In the year 2009, Peter joined the FNC in NYC. As a reporter, he covered various stories while in his short-span career, he has gained tremendous fame and wealth. He covered the Hurricane Sandy, 2011 flood of mid-west, the presidential elections of 2008 and 2012. Peter gave the live reports on Hurricane Sandy from the Rehoboth Beach not to mention that he was one of the handful of reporters from all major networks who covered the story of the heart transplant surgery of former Vice President Dick Cheney. His reports on the shoot-out of “Sand Hook Elementary School”, Connecticut were marvelous. He has also done the coverage of Boston marathon bombing. In November of 2014, he hosted a documentary ‘The Man Who Killed Usama bin Laden’, which featured the first television exclusive interview with Robert O'Neill, the Navy SEAL who says he fired the shots that killed terrorist leader Usama bin Laden. According to Nielsen, this is the highest rated documentary in FNC's history. Yet, Peter’s recent live report of the lethal Navy Yard shootout of Washington is his considered as the peak in his career as a reporter.
Peter Doocy’s personal affairs are not public – at least not yet. What we do know however, is that he has a beautiful family, with whom he lives in New Jersey. His family consists of his father,Steve Doocy, mother Kate Gerrity and his two siblings. Peter’s two sisters are Sally and Mary. As for his mother, Kate, she was a model and child actress, who also has a magazine show on ESPN. Peter’s father, Steve Doocy, on the other hand, is an anchor, author and a journalist. Both his parents are happily married and divorce is out of the scene.
Peter himself is a single unmarried man and he even seems to be enjoying his bachelor life. He might be dating someone but it is not confirmed by any trustworthy source, so all speculations cannot be validated. Being in his lime-light and still not having any rumors of recent girlfriends, has raised questions concerning his sexuality. However, no official statement has been made. That could be due to the fact that he keeps his personal life away from publicity and keeps a well-defined distance between his professional and personal life. Whether he’s gay or not afterall, we may never find out. And he may even have a sense of his own for not commenting on any of those rumors – for instance he could find it discriminating and choose not to answer. Or perhaps none of the rumors mentioned above, has reached him yet, so he could be totally unaware of what is being said about his sexual preferences.
