Weathercaster Amy Murphy Joins KNXV in Phoenix

By Merrill Knox Comment

KNXV, the ABC-affiliate in Phoenix, has hired local television veteran Amy Murphy as a weather anchor.

The move is a return to Phoenix for Murphy, who worked at NBC-affiliate KPNX before moving to Los Angeles, where she worked in various capacities for three stations — KTTV, KCAL and KCBS — until 2009. For the past two years, she has been working in corporate communications.

Murphy, who started this week, joins the weekend morning newscast.
