Dave Murray - 2018
Dave Murray introduced nightly meteorology to local St. Louis news weathercasting. When they hired him in 1976 at age 22, KSD-TV took a chance on the new kid devoted to explaining weather incorporating new technology with moving color graphics. The result made weather more understandable, relevant, and popular. Murray continued introducing new technologies even going on air from his home in the middle of the night during storms. This blend caught the attention of ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “World News This Morning” in 1983 when he moved to New York. Later he returned to his beloved St. Louis, weathercasting on KTVI-TV for 28 years. He won 12 local Emmy awards over a 42-year career.
