Who is Katy Tur?
Katy Tur is a news correspondent who many people will recognize for her coverage of Trump’s Presidential Campaign. Her reputation with the republicans soured after she was given the unenviable task of informing Trump’s campaign team about the leaked Access Hollywood footage. It featured the POTUS and Billy Bush inappropriately talking about women.
Because of this, Trump made it a habit of criticizing Katy at his rallies. The fall out of that was that she received a lot of verbal abuse and harassment. One positive thing that came out of the whole experience was that she published a best-selling book titled ‘Unbelievable,’ which chronicled her experience during the 2016 campaign.
At the start of her career, Katy worked for news stations like Cablevision and Fox 5 New York. By 2009, she had joined the team at NBC. The reception of several awards highlights her time with the network. These include AP’s Best Spot News Award and the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism.
Her work on television has included shows like MSNBC Live, Get Me Roger Stone, and 60 minutes.
Age and Birthday
The Unbelievable author was born on the 26th of October 1983 in Los Angeles, California. It makes her 38 years currently, and a Scorpio to boot! Her coverage of the Trump campaign displayed her cool, calm, and collected persona.
Despite all of the abuse she suffered, she maintained a remarkable air of professionalism.
The 60 minutes producer is the daughter of Marika Gerrard and Zoey Tur, both of whom were journalists. So, you are probably wondering who her father is. We were, too until we realized that the woman known as Zoey Tur had undergone a sex change! She was born Robert Albert Tur.
Net Worth and Salary
Katy Tur is a seasoned news reporter at NBC. She has covered big stories such as the Crane Collapse in 2008 and even the disappearance of the Malaysian Flight 370. It, therefore, comes as no surprise that she earns $1 million a year with the network.
Her book has been very successful since its release. It was listed on the New York Times Bestseller’s list. The book retails for $7 on Amazon. Its sale provides an additional source of income for the NBC correspondent. Katy Tur’s net worth sits at $4 million presently.
What is she doing now?
Like most people in the world, Katy Tur is currently quarantined at her home alongside her family. A look at her Instagram page reveals that she is still actively writing. Just recently, she penned an article for the New York Post. The column was titled ‘Studio Apartment’ and saw Tur talk about surviving marriage, work, and parenting during the outbreak.
Both she and her husband have been working in their basement at their Brooklyn home. Both have their own space and set to broadcast their various shows.
Husband and marriage
Katy Tur is the wife of CBS correspondent Tony Dokoupil. She started seeing Tony after her relationship with Keith Olbermann fell, though. Katy and Tony eventually tied the knot on the 27th of October 2017 in a ceremony held in Utah.
Marriage has not precisely proven easy, especially in isolation. She says that this period has brought about several mental challenges for both her and Tony. They are constantly worried about contracting the virus. However, they have learned to cope with all of it. The two are also enjoying spending time with their baby, catching all the milestones they’d have missed if they were busy with work.
Katy and Tony operate like a well-oiled machine. He gets up at around 4:30 am to prep for his show. Katy will follow suit at about 6 am, and both make sure each other are camera-ready. Her husband then cooks dinner while she is still wrapping up the day’s work.
Katy and her husband have three children together. Two are from Tony’s first marriage. Their first child together was born on the 16th of April 2019. His name is Teddy Dokoupil. NBC reporter Kasie Hunt announced Teddy’s birth. She went on to add that he had arrived weighing 6 pounds and 5 ounces.
