Peter Learned an Invaluable Lesson From Father on His First Day On Set

Peter was born on July 21, 1987, to Steve Doocy and Kathy Doocy. He attended Villanova University and there, he contributed to FOX News as The Palestra’s (FNC’s partner site) Pennsylvania sports arena reporter. He completed his studies and received his B.A. in Political Science in 2009.

He joined Fox News Channel in New York City the same year. Peter’s father, Steve, who was hosting Fox & Friends on the same network since its start in 1998, helped Peter learn a lot about his job. As befitting of a son who has followed a similar career path, Peter was assigned as Steve’s substitute on Fox & Friends in 2015. Since then, he has filled-in three times for his father on weekends for Fox & Friends till 2018.

In an interview with People.comPeter said that he received his best advice on the very first day of work from his father regarding a certain workplace hack to get people to think that he was always busy. 

You’ve got to roll up your sleeves of your dress shirt...And I said, ‘Dad, why do I need to roll up my sleeves?’ And he said, ‘Because...people will just assume that you are busy.

The proud father also fondly shared that the family of five regularly stayed in touch through a group chat where they constantly shared the day’s news.

...It’s a point of pride that Kathy and I have raised three kids who are not only interested in the news, but talk about the news. The news actually has brought us closer together.
