Shawn Murphy

Shawn Murphy

State of Delmarva Host Shawn Murphy began his broadcasting career in the early 1990s as a radio announcer in Baltimore, where he worked for WITH and WHVY. In 1992, Shawn relocated to Delmarva. He worked for several area radio stations such as WWTR, WDMV, WLFX and several others but he is mostly known for his 12 years as the program director and morning drive host at WZBH 93.5 The Beach. Shawn has also worked as a program director at WQBK/WQBJ in Albany, N.Y.

During his more than 20 years on the air, Shawn has informed Delmarva listeners of many notable news events, including the O.J. Simpson verdict and the bombing of the Oklahoma Federal Building. He was on the air to announce the deaths of Jerry Garcia and Kurt Cobain, and was also on the air providing Delmarva with early reports of the 9/11 tragedy.

Shawn lives in Berlin, Md., with his significant other Christine and their five children. He enjoys the beach lifestyle and spends his spare time fishing, boating and collecting antique fishing gear. He is also a member of the Lower Shore Workforce Alliance Youth Council. This organization was established by the Tri-County Council of the Lower Shore and provides expertise in regards to broadening employment opportunities for the youth of the Lower Shore.

Shawn is looking forward to State of Delmarva, providing the peninsula with up-to-date information and topical discussion. If it’s happening on Delmarva, or is important to its people, it will be discussed on State of Delmarva, 7 a.m. weekdays on FOX21Delmarva.
