Peter Doocy: Dad Steve is ‘My Behind-the- Scenes Career Counselor’

steve and peter doocyFox News anchor Steve Doocy and his son, Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy, talk to NJ.com about what it’s like to work at the same network:

Remembering how Peter was still in college when he participated in MSNBC’S Chris Matthews’ Hardball College Tour, Steve states “…my wife Kathy and I encouraged Peter to pursue either an MBA or a law degree but…(Peter) was selected to ask John McCain a town hall question. Peter phrased it in a hilarious way that got McCain and the 5000 in attendance laughing, and made political headlines.”

Soon after, Peter became a junior reporter and he believes that “I’m able to concentrate on what I’m doing with the benefit of having him as my behind-the-scenes career counselor. He’s already made all the rookie mistakes you can make on TV and he makes sure I don’t follow in those footsteps.”
