Bill Murphy has been bringing Bay News 9 viewers his "Everyday Heroes" series for about 3 years. Prior to that he had two series running on the Bright House On Demand Channel, "Murphy’s Hot Spots" and "Murphy’s Journal."
Bill came to the Tampa Bay area from Monterey, California in early 1985. He hosted a morning TV show on WTSP-TV, "Murphy In The Morning" for about 7 years.

A U.S. Navy veteran and native New Yorker (Midtown Manhattan), Bill says meeting and writing about the heroes he’s met has made this the best assignment he’s had in his 30-plus years in broadcasting.
