Phillies: 3 things we will miss the most about Gregg Murphy
By Matthew C
Everyone will miss Gregg Murphy’s reports on Phillies television broadcasts.
Something that made Gregg Murphy liked not only in Philadelphia, but in the sports broadcast world, was the way he conducted his interviews and reports on the broadcast. Often doing the MLB Notebook segment in the seventh inning, Murphy goes over what is happening around the league on that current day; it was always incredible to watch and listen to what he had to say.
Murphy’s attitude and love for the game was radiated through the screen and into the homes of Phillies fans, who watched when he was on-air doing a segment. Postgame interviews with players are no exception.
You could feel Murphy’s charismatic energy and love for the game through the screen while watching his post-game player interview. Following every game, Murphy would go down to the field and interview a player.
Any Phillies player who was subject to an interview with Murph would agree he is a true professional broadcaster.
Having Murphy no longer on the Phillies broadcast team is a huge blow to not only the network, with some fans say they will no longer be watching the network, but to fans watching on TV looking forward to his reports. Also, on occasion, Murphy has filled in inside the broadcast booth for play-by-play duties, as needed.
Aside from his postgame interviews, Murphy also conducted interviews with fans he’d meet at Citizens Bank Park for an on-air segment. Any fan who got the chance and experience to be interviewed by Murphy for a segment on a Phillies game broadcast, you could just tell while watching on TV that the fan was enjoying themself.
