Chris Murphy joined FOX 29 in October, 2013, as co-anchor of “Good Day Philadelphia” from 4am to 7am.
Most recently, Chris served as weekend anchor and reporter for KGTV-TV in San Diego. Prior to that, he was a reporter for KNSD-TV in San Diego.
Chris has held news anchor and reporter positions at various stations, including KGW-TV and KPTV-TV in Portland, OR, KRON-TV in San Francisco, KTVN-TV in Reno, NV and KIEM-TV in Eureka, CA.
Earlier in his career, Chris hosted “Travel Gear” on The Travel Channel. He began his career as a newsroom intern for KGET-TV in Bakersfield, CA.
On weekends you’ll find Chris on “date night” with his wife of 15 years in Center City at Vedge or Vernick. Family trips into the city invariably end with a trip to the Franklin Fountain for ice cream with his two children.
When he can sneak away for a few hours, Chris loves to golf. He has played Aronimink in Newtown Square, Merion in Ardmore and Trump National in Pine Hill, NJ. Note: Chris is a better anchor than he is golfer.
A graduate of the University of California-San Diego, Chris holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications.
