Although he held a business degree from Grove City College in his home state of Pennsylvania, Kevin Murphy decided he’d rather build a career in radio broadcasting and landed his first job at a station in Ashtabula, Ohio.
By 1977, he had left WNDE in Indianapolis and was doing afternoons in Memphis for Plough Broadcasting’s flagship station WMPS. When the AM'er flipped from Top 40 to a country format the following year, he didn’t bail as some others there did, but opted instead to stay on.
Kevin left the Bluff City in 1981 and headed for another Plough outlet, Tampa Bay’s Sun Country WSUN. During the six or so years he was there, he handled programming and music and an afternoon drive air shift. From there, he moved to WKLR in Indianapolis and stayed with that station through multiple owners and a call letter change back to its original WNAP, before ending his broadcast career in 2000.
