  News on the Move: Chris Murphy Leaving Fox 29, Susan Schiller Heading South, Weddings & Babies


Chris Murphy joined FOX 29 in October, 2013, as news co-anchor of “Good Day Philadelphia” from 4am to 7am with Lauren Johnson. Before that he 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 and now he returns to San Diego next week to take an anchor job at KSWB in San Diego. A graduate of the University of California-San Diego, Chris holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications. We’re all going to miss him a lot, especially his best bud Mike Jerrick, who mentioned as much on the show this morning’s show when he said Chris was leaving next week. So send your best wishes to our buddy @ChrisFox29

Dish of the Week. Who would have thought the new Butcher Bar would serve such a delicious dish –
Bronzino with a lobster and crab salad and fresh fall vegetables.


If it had to be the last day of summer, at least it went out with this amazing sunset.
