Peter Doocy is a Washington-based correspondent for Fox News Channel. Having joined the network in 2009, he has been with Fox News for over ten years.

During this decade-long period, he has covered multiple significant stories. Some of his major reports include former U.S. vice president Dick Cheney’s heart transplant surgery, the Boston Marathon bombing, the exclusive interview with Robert O’Neill, and the documentary of Navy SEAL who killed Osama Bin Laden.

Doocy Learned an Invaluable Lesson From Father

Doocy is the son of the famous reporter Steve Doocy. Born on July 21, 1987, to Steve and Kathy, he attended Villanova University.

During his college, he contributed to The Palestra as a Pennsylvania sports arena reporter. He completed his studies and received his B.A. in political science in 2009. Thereon, he joined the Fox News channel in New York City.

Doocy's father, Steve, who was hosting Fox & Friends on the network since its start in 1998, helped him learn a lot about his job. As befitting of a son who followed a similar career path, Doocy was assigned as Steve’s substitute on Fox & Friends in 2015.

He timely filled in for his father's absence on the show as well.
