2 Out at Fox Philadelphia

By Kevin Eck 

Meteorologist Dave Warren and morning anchor Chris Murphy have moved on from Fox-owned WTXF in Philadelphia.

Philly.com reports Warren already works at WFOR in Miami.

He joined WTXF in 2015 from Philadelphia NBC-owned station WCAU. Last night, he was introduced by chief meteorologist Craig Setzer during WFOR’s coverage of Hurricane Matthew.

“Instead of the standard,’It is with mixed emotions, it is bittersweet or it is with a heavy heart’ I will just stick to the facts,” Warren wrote on Facebook. “I am no longer with Fox29 as I have accepted a job at the CBS Station in Miami. My planned start date was in November but with the recent storm I am here now. My first day is/was today.”

Murphy’s last day at WTXF was last Friday. He had worked at the station since August 2013

He posted what his co-anchor wrote about him on Facebook.

“I’ve enjoyed all 21 months of the fun. We laughed, cried, laughed so hard we cried, and truly created a special bond. Partners on tv…but friends in life!” Murphy’s co-anchor Lauren Johnson wrote on Facebook. “So long TV husband…it was fun while it lasted; I’ll never forget your warm hugs and loving arms!”
