Douglas Kennedy is currently employed as a correspondent at FOX News Channel (FNC), where he has been a part of the team since 1996. He operates out of New York and has contributed significantly to the network’s news coverage over the years.
Notably, Kennedy recently provided comprehensive reports on the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, focusing on Staten Island, NY. Throughout his tenure at FNC, he has delivered live coverage of numerous high-profile events, including every presidential election since FNC’s inception, the Iraq War, the September 11th attack on the World Trade Center, and the devastating Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
In 2007, Kennedy achieved a significant breakthrough by being the first national reporter to establish a connection between antidepressant medications and adolescent suicide and violence. His groundbreaking work led to government hearings that ultimately resulted in black box warnings being issued by the Food and Drug Administration.
Before joining FNC, Kennedy honed his skills as a crime reporter at The New York Post, as well as at The Boston Herald and The Nantucket Beacon. These experiences provided him with a solid foundation in investigative journalism and reporting on criminal activities.
Kennedy obtained his B.A. from Brown University, underscoring his commitment to education and intellectual growth.
