Michigan reporter remixes the weather
There’s no need to Auto-Tune the News when Tom Murphy is on the scene.
Snoop Dogg might want to grab an umbrella; it’s expected to drizzle today.
That’s the sort of flavor Tom Murphy brings to his weather forecast at CBS affiliate WBKB-TV in Alpena, Michigan. The quotable news anchor remixes traditional weather reports with hip-hop lyrics and various punch lines.
Murphy’s frequent sports references shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, since he has sports broadcasting experience from his college days. (Though perhaps he’d have more luck in thinking of football players’ jersey numbers that match temperatures if Celsius was used instead of Fahrenheit.)
Maybe we’re looking at the next senior weather correspondent for The Daily Show.
