Pat Murphy, sports anchor for West Palm Beach CBS affiliate WPEC, has announced he’s leaving TV after 33 years in the business because, as he told The Palm Beach Post, “some of the fun has left the job.”
“I’ve gotten a little disenchanted,” Murphy said. “I’ve seen good people forced out the door or not have their contacts renewed.”
Despite his feelings about the businesses, Murphy told The Post his career has not been a grind,
“It has gone by fast,” the 57-year-old Murphy said during a recent lunch. “It has gone by faster than I ever thought it could. I’ve spent half my life here. I never would have imagined I’d be in one city as long as I’ve been here.
Murphy’s last show will be Monday. After that? He told The Post, “I don’t know what the future holds. But I’m looking forward to it.”
