Doocy attended Villanova University and worked as a contributor to "The Palestra", a partner site of Fox News during his time in college. He graduated from Villanova University with a Bachelor’s Degree.

Doocy was thrust into the limelight when he asked John McCain a controversial question about Hillary Clinton and her drinking habits during the Hardball tour with Chris Matthews. The exact question that Doocy, still a Villanova student at the time, asked McCain was whether he thought Hillary Clinton "finally resorted to hitting the sauce because of unfavorable polling." That and one other question prompted his fellow host 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 his hard-hitting questions on “Fox & Friends". The questions also prompted Keith Olbermann to name him one of the "Worst People in the World". Steve Doocy then attacked Olbermann, calling him "a guy who picks on people’s children." The interview would help launch Doocy into a successful and fruitful career.
