CUMULUS Rock WKSM (99 ROCK)/FT. WALTON BEACH PD WOOFY RAMONE share the sad news that, "this past SATURDAY (5/9) the 99 ROCK family lost a father, husband, friend, co-host, brother, weird uncle, brilliant soul, wordsmith, fixer, creator, your morning companion, 'that funny guy on the radio,' motorcycle builder and Corvette lover. MURPH, the longtime co-host of The Morning Movement, passed away from a sudden massive heart attack. MURPH had been a leading member of The Morning Movement since 1999. For the past 3 years MURPH had co-hosted the show with his son NIC. The station will respect his honor by having no morning show till next MONDAY (5-18) when NIC will return with the other show member TARYN."
There is an account set-up to help offset his final medical expenses, and to donate to the AMERICAN HEART ASSCOIATION in his name. Head to GoFundME.com/Murph.
