Since joining CBS News in 2016, Dokoupil has interviewed a variety of major artists, entertainers and newsmakers, among them First Lady Hillary Clinton, comedy legend Steve Martin, and music superstar Dolly Parton.

He recently anchored "CBS This Morning" live from the Kennedy Space Center on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. In October, Dokoupil anchored the broadcast from The Empire State Building, previewing the re-vamped Observation Deck on the 102nd floor.

Dokoupil has also led original coverage of vaping, including a broadcast exclusive interview with Juul CEO Kevin Burns.

His cover stories for "CBS Sunday Morning" include features on the scourge of suicide, the struggles of public school teachers, and a successful rehab program for drug and alcohol-addicted airline pilots. His long-form work for "Sunday Morning" includes profiles of Chuck Lorre and Ben Stiller, and cultural pieces on the joys of quitting your job, the benefits of working with your hands, and the fight over plastic straws.

He has three children and lives in New York with his family.
