Birmingham, Nashville Radio: Matt Murphy EXITS WZRR For WWTN

Matt Murphy
Friday during his Birmingham Talk WZRR 99.5 morning show, long-time Alabama radio host Matt Murphy announced he was departing the Magic City’s airwaves and accepting a job with WWTN 99.5 FM in Nashville. Both stations are owned by Cumulus Media.

Murphy, who has been a fixture in Alabama radio, both Montgomery and Birmingham, since 1999, will be filling a void left behind by the late Phil Valentine, who died because of complications from COVID-19 earlier this year.

“And so, I will continue to head up I-65 as I did 19 years ago from Montgomery to Birmingham and head to Nashville starting after next week,” Murphy said to his listening audience on Friday. “Never you fear, for you are in wonderful, wonderful hands at Talk 99.5.”

“Not only will Valerie remain here in this day part — she will be joined by another,” he continued. “There will be new voices and new individuals coming to the microphone starting a week from Monday.”

Murphy will host from noon-3 p.m. at WWTN.
