American political commentator and author, Dana Perino, has certainly seen a lot of news happen. From her work at the Illinois capital to her well-known service as White House for President George W. Bush, Perino has worked hard to establish her career and her wealth.

Perino’s Early Life

Dana Perino was born on May 9, 1972 in Evanston, WY, and grew up in Denver, CO. The great-granddaughter of Italian immigrants graduated from Ponderosa High School, a Denver suburb. She was raised in a Christian household and her father sparked her love of the news by having her read the newspapers to him after he got home at night. To further her learning and understanding, he would have his daughter discuss two of the articles she read with him.

After graduation, Perino received a master’s degree from the University of Illinois, Springfield in public affairs reporting. While attending UIS, she worked as a daily reporter covering the state capital for a CBS station.

Her Family

Perino was boarding a plane for Chicago when she met her husband, Peter McMahon. Their attraction was immediate, and they talked for hours.

She served as the 24th White House Press Secretary from September 14, 2007 to January 20, 2009. Dana Perino currently has a net worth of approximately $6 million.

What Dana Perino Drives

If you think the Fox News host tools around town in a luxury car, you couldn’t be more wrong. While Perino can certainly have the mode of transportation, she is most fond of posting photos of her Harley. Its glowing white color isn’t the most noticeable feature of her classy ride. The best part of the bike is the sidecar, usually with Jasper happily riding beside.

Perino’s Beach House

Dana Perino has a weekend home in Bay Head, New Jersey, and this is where the Fox News host has been broadcasting her show, «The Daily Briefing» and also co-hosting «The Five» during the COVID-19 pandemic. The beach house on the Jersey Shore has a remote studio in a spare bedroom for the broadcasts and her children’s story time readings.

The home studio has a classic Jersey Shore look, with crisp linens in blue and green covering the twin beds. The only thing making it look like a show taping is going on is the partially abstract White House background.

Her Favorite Vacation Destinations

Perino certainly gets the chance to travel with her work. When she was serving as Press Secretary for President Bush, she visited over 55 countries with the president. And with her show, «The Daily Briefing», she traveled to several U.S. locations.

But when it comes to vacationing, Perino definitely has some favorite destinations. Among them are Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina, where they almost moved, along with Wyoming and Utah. For their 20th wedding anniversary, the couple went to Spain, which she loved.
