Veteran radio personality Chris Murphy is moving to the Bloomington-Normal market for what he refers to as “the last media job” of his career with Great Plains Media.
Murphy has worked for Mid-West Family Broadcasting for 26 years, 21 of those in Springfield. He currently hosts the WMAY morning show, along with Greg Bishop, and his last day on that station will be Jan. 2. He begins his new job in Bloomington on Jan. 4.
In a Facebook post announcing his upcoming move, Murphy said, “…while I will miss Springfield, I will be back to doing what I love, live music radio and leading the team to create winning content on-air and online.”
