David Murphy, the meteorologist on Action News in Philadelphia, is retiring after 37 years in broadcasting, 31 here in Philly.
"Yo Murph!", as many people called him around town, graduated from Temple University with a BA in Communications, and wanted to be an actor. But he eventually moved over to news broadcasting.
He worked as a reporter in Baltimore, Maryland, and in Wilkes-Barre and Allentown, Pennsylvania before he joined Action News in 1990 as a general assignment reporter. He became a meteorologist in 2004, and he has been the weekday morning meteorologist on Action News mornings for the past 17 years. Congratulations and good luck David Murphy! Enjoy your retirement.
