The gist:

  • Emily Compagno joined Fox News Channel as a contributor in December 2018.
  • Emily is also a lawyer and has practiced law since 2006.
  • Emily's husband works as a major account manager at Netskope.

Fans of Outnumbered, one of Fox News's most popular shows, have become increasingly interested in getting to know the hosts as they tackle the most-talked-about issues of the day. Emily Compagno, in particular, has sparked the interest of many, which is why she has over 400,000 Instagram followers.

In addition to knowing more about Emily's experience in the legal field, many want to know who her husband is (sorry fellas, she's taken!) and what he does for a living.

Emily began her political career after graduating law and passing the California bar exam, after which she became a criminal defense attorney in San Francisco. Meanwhile, she was still working as the captain of the Oakland Raiders cheerleading squad, so she’s a woman of many talents. But who is Emily Compagno’s husband?

Emily Compagno’s husband is Peter Riley, also from the northwest.

Emily and Peter both attended college at the University of Washington. Emily graduated with a B.A. in political science, and Peter also pursued a degree in political science, although he graduated in 2000. Both Emily and Peter are the same age, and while they don’t seem to have kids, their love story is admirable.

Peter supposedly is a major account manager for Netskope with a pretty high net worth, although there’s no way to corroborate internet rumors of up to an $8 million net worth. However, if he and Emily have an equal financial partnership, that number isn’t too absurd.

Emily and Peter got married on Sept. 13, 2017, and have seemingly had a very pleasant marriage since. In fact, Emily wanted them to get married in her family’s estate in Villa Cimbrone, Italy. They even said their “I do’s” at an outdoor Tea Room Pavilion.

There were rumors of a divorce, but Emily hasn’t spoken about it, and there hasn’t been any confirmation. In fact, Emily does her best to keep her private life out of the spotlight, so she doesn’t post anything on her social media about Peter.

However, through some internet sleuthing, we know that although they only married in 2017, Emily and Peter first met when they were teenagers, and they reconnected on the streets of Seattle just one year before getting married! It was love at *second* sight. And before Peter began working at Netskope, he served as the major account manager for Palo Alto Networks, per his LinkedIn profile. Prior to that, he held an account manager role at Cisco Systems.

Now, we can expect to see Emily continue her talk show savvy on the Fox News network from her evening appearances on Gutfeld! to her regular spot on Outnumbered, and now, even guest appearances on Fox & Friends. We’re sure that wherever Peter is and whatever he’s doing, he’s in full support of his wife’s public persona.
