Keith Murphy Facts
- I worked at Walt Disney World in High School.
- The first time I ever lost a foot race, it was to a girl. (I’m looking at you, Blanche Wiggins.)
- I’ve read the sports section, while eating breakfast, with the paper propped between my cereal bowl and a gallon of milk for as long as I can remember.
- I’ve had neck, shoulder, knee, and nose surgery—all from sports-related injuries.
- I moved to broadcast after a bad concussion at college football practice my freshman year. Future NFL All-Pro Jessie Tuggle knocked the snot out of me. He’s a nice guy though, and I probably had it coming.
- I once had a fly land in my mouth during a sportscast. I coughed it up, and laughed so hard, we had to go to a commercial. Fortunately, there was no “YouTube” then.
- I once high jumped 6′ 4″. I also once threw two interceptions in a quarter.
- I worked at a movie theater for more than three years. My friends and I often stayed until sun-up watching films.
- I often drink a glass of half diet Pepsi/half milk. It tastes like a root beer float.
- I was “promoted” to the news early in my career, but couldn’t get out fast enough after covering the Gainesville Ripper murders in 1990. I often get emails from viewers after they’ve seen old film footage of me on a national story about the killings. I’m the guy (with more hair) who looks like he should be doing sports.
- I’m actually shy. I’m an introvert who plays an extrovert on television.
- I was an Altar Boy who laughed too much, a Cub Scout who couldn’t tie knots, and a news anchor who loved sports.
- I was benched an entire game in the local Little League World Series for throwing my bat in anger after striking out. The following year I won the sportsmanship trophy. Thank you, coach Hutchinson.
