Sean Murphy Drives Into The Sunset

Former CW57 "Wake Up News" traffic reporter Sean Murphy--who transferred to CBS3 in June when "Wake Up News" awoke at 5 a.m. for the last time--has been canned from CBS3. Marnie Hall's Philly Gossip recently reported that initial rumors were that the features/traffic back-up reporter recently signed a 3 year contract to remain at KYW. However, management took an early-out clause and bid farewell to Murphy instead. Murphy is married to the daughter of former CBS3 General Manager Michael Colleran who retired from CBS3 about five months ago and seemed to be Murphy's biggest fan. Time will tell who Bob Kelly's official back-up will be but smart money would bet on Jamie Shupak?

Murphy was one of the best traffic guys TheCWPhilly has ever had.

He seemed intoxicated on air.

Sean Murphy sucked. He was a cocky, arrogant prick. The only reason he kept that job as long as he had it was because he slept with the bosses daughter. I was so happy to see him go and hope that smug loser never makes it back to TV. I feel sorry for his kid.
