Kathy Gerrity’s Career Highlights
The 65-year-old celebrity spouse is reportedly a former model and host of ESPN. She used to run her own sports show on ESPN, as shown by the sources. As it’s been a long since she parted her way from her professional career, it is difficult to extract information about her particular career activities.
However, it is open news to the public that she worked in the sports department of WRC-Tv in Washington D.C., where she met her then-future husband, Steve Doocy.
Moving on, Steve is an American TV host, political commentator, and author by profession. He always aspired to be in the media field. Following his dreams, he started his career as a DJ for a student-operated radio station, KJHK radio.
And after that, there’s no looking back for the amazing media personality. He worked in many TV stations including WRC-TV as a features reporter. He also hosted Wake Up America, an NCB’s talk show.
His other major works include Times Square reporter on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve and co-host of Fox News Channel’s Fox and Friends.
The alum of the University of Kansas saw a huge turning point in his career when he joined Fox News Channel in 1996. His show “Fox and Friends” drew remarkable public attention as the show was also followed by the former American president, Donald Trump.
Once Doocy also became the breaking news as he challenged Trump’s decision of making weekly appearances on ‘Fox and Friends.
“You may want to do it every week, but Fox is not committed to that. We’re going to take it on a case by case basis.”
Doocy has written two solo books as an author as “The Mr. and Mrs. Happy”(2006) and “Tales From the Dad Side”(2008). He dedicated the former book to his wife while the latter one is about the suggestions a father wants to give to their children.
Later, the host-spouse wrote a cookbook together “The Happy Cookbook” in 2018. Again in the lockdown of 2020, they published another cookbook “Happy in a Hurry Cookbook” which became the number one seller in The New York’s Best Seller list.
For now, Steve is still active in the media field while Kathy is a happy homemaker.
Married Life With Steve Doocy: Their Love Story
As mentioned, the Doocy couple met at the studio of WRC-TV. Doocy worked as a reporter, whereas, Kathy was working in the sports department of the television at that time. Shortly after, the pair started dating and shared a wonderful time together for a few years.
As they were getting more close and dear to each other, they couldn’t deny the love they were having for each other.
It was the 14th February 1986, Valentine’s day when Steve proposed his love, Kathy. As expected, Kathy didn’t take the time to accept the long-awaited proposal. They exchanged their wedding vows on 30th June 1968 amidst family and friends.
Since then, the couple has indeed come a long way as their married life marked their 35th year this year.
The lovely couple share three kids together: Peter Doocy (born: 21st July 1987), Mary G. Doocy, and Sally G. Doocy (born: November 1992). Among them, the eldest kid, Peter Doocy is a journalist and serves as a White House correspondent for Fox News.
Did You Know? Fox TV’s host has also published a book “The Mr. and Mrs.” dedicated to his wife.
Net Worth & Earnings: How Much Is Gerrity’s Net Worth?
As the former TV show host has kept her professional life away from the spotlight most of the time, her exact fortune is not known.
However, some reliable sources have claimed that her net worth amounts to be $500 thousand as of 2021.
Needless to say, the former model has earned all those amounts from her modeling and hosting career. Also, the cookbook book she jointly wrote with her husband might also have contributed a lot to her net worth.
Likewise, her star husband, Steve owns a fortune of $11 million with an annual salary of $4 million as of November 2021. There is no surprise in knowing that a super active media personality has a net worth in millions. He’s been in this field for almost 4 decades now.
He acquired all these amounts from his work as a host, author, and political commentator. As mentioned, one of his books has also hit the New York Times Best Seller being the number one seller of that year.
The multi-millionaire TV personality happened to bear some legal charges due to the lawsuit filed by Gretchen Carlson. Carlson accused him of bullying and harassing her. To settle this case, Steve had to pay $20 million to Gretchen.
Still, Steve Doocy lives a luxurious, and reputed life with his wife and children. They own a house in Wyckoff, New Jersey, and live a very humble life.
