There’s something about Steve Murphy. It’s the way he’s let his hair go all salt-and-pepper, and got spiffy new glasses and always thanks the viewers on behalf of those “on both sides of the camera” at the end of every broadcast. It’s his easy banter with Mike Duffy and how he can hold his own in Lloyd Robertson’s formidable chair. He makes you want to believe everything he says, and that’s saying something.
