Dorothy Lucey at the red carpet of the 2006 American Idol Season Finale
|Born||November 19, 1958|
|Spouse(s)||David Goldstein (1993 - present)|
Lucey graduated from George Washington University in 1979 with a degree in political science before going into television reporting. She was an on-air reporter for WNEP in Scranton, Pennsylvania and WABC in New York City (including a stint alongside Regis Philbin), and later joined NBC Sports. She was also a co-host of Attitudes, a talk show on Lifetime Television in the 1990s. In 1992, she hosted the CBS series How'd They Do That.
Lucey joined Good Day L.A. in 1995 as the show's entertainment reporter. Much of the show's formula consists of wide-ranging banter between the three anchors. A major part of Lucey's reportage includes extensive coverage of American Idol and reading directly from TMZ.com and Perezhilton.com. She also has had bit roles in a few movies and TV shows, often playing as a TV reporter.
Lucey's 17 year run with Good Day L. A. came to an end on May 25, 2012 as a result of non-renewal of her contract.
Lucey has been married since 1993 to KCBS investigative reporter David Goldstein, and they have a young son together named Nash. Nash figured a lot in Lucey's on-air discussions, but he has rarely been seen on camera.
Lucey also regularly discusses her religious revival - she converted from Roman Catholicism to a devout form of Presbyterianism several years ago. On the October 26, 2006 broadcast of Good Day L.A., she described herself as a "liberal Christian."
