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.
In any case, the young, charming and energetic reporter is pretty famous among the ladies. There is a notable amount of websites on the internet that consider Peter Doocy to be the hottest and youngest reporter of the Fox channel. His profiles at social networking sites, Facebook & Twitter are visited by a number of fans on a daily basis. In fact, he has over 25,000 followers on twitter only. What’s even more interesting, is that his fan base following him on social networks is increasing day by day. His overall personality captures the attention of people, which is probably one of the reasons why his followers are increasing.
Now, while the cloak of mystery falling over the reporter’s personal life is pretty dense, an interview that he gave to ‘The Hill’ cleared up a few stuff about him and his preferences. For instance did you know that Peter’s favorite movie is ‘Forrest Gump’? More interestingly, his favorite pick up line is Did it hurt … when you fell from heaven? He went on revealing a couple more of his secrets – like his celebrity crash which is Kate Upton. The most fun part of the short interview however, was when Peter was asked about his most embarrassing moment/most memorable moment: “Embarrassing? Fell into a hole on live TV during Superstorm Sandy coverage (continued with the live shot, by the way). Memorable? Like five minutes later, when the picture of me falling into the hole was on every website (heard from a lot of old friends).”
Peter has just started his journalism career. He is in the fourth year (career-like activity around reporting in college years is not being taken under consideration) and still has a long way to go. Yet, one of his reportedly most memorable moments in his career was when he was caught in sand trap during sandy reporting. “It looks like the sandy walkway out to the beach has actually got my foot stuck!” he said. “Oh, Peter, take it easy out there,” MacCallum said. “Not a pretty picture here in Delaware, but I’m OK,” Doocy concluded.
In accordance with his enthusiasm and adherence for his work one could easily say that Peter Doocy is going to set milestones in the field of journalism. Currently, his estimated net worth is $500 K and his salary is $100 K. These numbers are estimated numbers and therefore, not official.
