Cumulus Media’s WIOV-FM/I-105 in Lancaster, PA, announced the passing of longtime morning show host Jerry Murphy, Wednesday, at age 61. Murphy was known as “Murph” of the Murph & Casey Morning Show on I-105. He hosted the show with Casey Allyn for 19 years.
Allyn said, “Murph was my morning sunshine. He could make me laugh every day harder than I’ve ever laughed. After spending five hours each weekday in a small room with someone for 19 years he was definitely my ‘work spouse.’ And for all the fun and craziness he exhibited, he was one of the most intelligent and caring people I knew. I will miss him so unbelievably much. He and I will always be ‘just like that.’”
WIOV-FM I-105 Program Director Rich Creeger said,” Murph was not only one of the most charismatic personalities I had the pleasure of working with but he was also a great friend. I will miss him tremendously.”
The station has set up a tribute on the station website at www.wiov.com where listeners can express and share their feelings on Jerry Murphy’s passing.
