Katy’s Mom’s Influence (Early Life, Bio, Family)
You all might or might not know that Katy’s mom or should we say moms is also a broadcast journalist. It’s a pride Katy takes in. Anyway, if this is all a little confusing to you, let me break it down.
So, Katy’s parents’ names are Zoey Tur and Marika Gerrard. While Marika gave birth to her precious little daughter, Katy. The name of Katy’s father, now mom Zoey was Bobby Tur. Likewise, Bobby transitioned to Zoey a long time ago after getting a divorce from Marika.
Furthermore, Marika is a retired journalist but Zoey still works as one. And we know for a fact that Katy is highly influenced by her parents. But, although her family influenced her, Katy never wanted to follow this path to begin with. Furthermore, for some reason Katy refused to speak to Zoey Tur for years after her transition.
This raises a question, is she transphobic? Because if not, why would she not suppor her own beloved dad to go through such an important procedure?
On the other hand, Katy was born Katherine Bear Tur in 1983. Likewise, she celebrates her birthday every year on October 26. Furthermore, Katy grew up in Los Angeles, the USA alongside her sibling, brother James Tur. Growing up, Katy and James were really close. Currently, James is a medical student.

In the begenning, Katy’s parents were her role model. They were one of the bests. And even with a one year old kid in their house and one child on the way, they went to cover many news and reports. Likewsie, Bob and Marika were that husband wide duo journalist that everyone admired.
However, one day, their station got a chopper of their own and they no lionger deed the perfect duo anymore. Things turned out to get even worse as time passed. After Katy’s grandmother died, things became even worse. Her one perfect mom and dad with the perfect job were falling behind on bills. And they didn’t try to do something else. Katy says that her parents froze like a watch after things got down.
And that’s when Katy promised to herself that she is never taking Journalism. Furthermore, she then started to study in order to become a lawyer. But, fate turned destinies and next thing she knew, one incident made her want to report. She even faked and lied about her idendity.

The Trump Campaign
This can be considered as a controversy. But, I’d like to believe that Katy’s Trump campaign convection was nothing else but a misfortune. For the 2016 Donal Trump Presidential Campain, Katy served as the correspondant.
Furthermore, Trump absolutely despised Tur and even criticized her works on more than one occasion. Similarly, Trump supporters came for Katy and she was booed and even harassed. But the campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway says that Trump didn’t have any intention of giving hardship to poor Katy Tur. Anyway, don’t we all know that Trump highly follows misogyny AND is sexist?
Moreover, after Tur gave a good reflectio to this horrendous campaign. She wrote a bookand published it. And, if you want to read the book, the name of the book is My Front Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History.
In addition to that, she is working on a memoir that is very personal to her and contains disclousurre of her childhood days in LA.

The Perfect Wife & Mother
Yes, Katy is the perfect wife and a perfect mother. The love she has for her family can be seen from her Instagram feeds. Furthermore, there is no day she would rather choose her career over kids, which I know is normal. But with such a busy schedule she is still giving most of her time to her husband and baby.
And, she is also such a good cook that fans are waiting for her cookbook. Isn’t that crazy? And here I thought no one is perfect. Looks like Tur is breaking this stigma of no one being perect.
Anyway, she married her husband Tony Dokoupil in 2017 who is also a Journalist. Moreover, Katy and Tony had their first baby, a son in the begenning of 2019. And two years later, Tur gave forth to her younger baby girl.
In addition, Tur is also a step mother for two of Tony’s kids from previous marriage.
