Murphy Succeeds Roberts At WIBL

Mid-West Family/Springfield, IL OM Chris Murphy is joining Great Plains/Bloomington, IL as OM & Country WIBL PD/afternoon personality. He succeeds Andy Roberts, who is stepping down effective Jan. 15 to spend more time with his family. Murphy has spent more than a decade with Mid-West/Springfield following stops in Minneapolis; Madison, WI; and Philadelphia. "After four tours of duty and 26 years with Mid-West Family, I've decided to take the last media job of my career," says Murphy. "Twenty-one of those 26 years have been here in Springfield, and while I will miss [the town], I will be back to doing what I love ... live music and leading the team to create winning content on-air and online." Adds Roberts, “Our fifth child will be born in February. I will look for music, imaging and digital projects after some time off.” Roberts joined in Aug. 2019 after more than 20 years with Saga/Champaign, IL (CAT 8/8/19).
