About Matt Murphy

Matt Murphy was born on September 1st, 1973 in a small town outside of Augusta, Georgia. The world has known no peace nor quiet since.

Matt Murphy is a high energy, highly opinionated voice of North and Central Alabama. A special blend of political no-nonsense talk and entertaining water-cooler humor…Murphy appeals to all demographics. From their twenties to their eighties – Matt is an equal opportunity offender! His honed intellect and sharp wit turns Alabama’s sacred cows into mincemeat.

Matt lives in Helena, AL with his wife Erica and their two dogs – a big ole hound dog (John Henry), and his little brother (Larry Munson).
