Murphy will oversee CNN's mornings as they undergo yet another revamp under new CNN Worldwide president (and former Today EP) Jeff Zucker. Chris Cuomo joined the network in January to anchor the new morning show (still to be announced) and Starting Point anchor Soledad O'Brien said last week she will leave the morning show this spring.
A veteran of GMA, Murphy was senior executive producer of the ABC morning show from 2006-11 and before that was executive producer of the CBS Evening News from 2000-05. He helped launch the syndicated Anderson as executive producer before exiting the program in January 2012 during its first season.
Murphy's hire was first reported by the New York Times.
