Emcee – Shannon Murphy
Shannon Murphy joined WGAL in June of 2018 as the weekday morning reporter.
Shannon is a Lancaster County native and graduate of both Hempfield High School and Millersville University. In college, she interned at WGAL and always had a dream of coming back and working in her hometown. After graduating from MU, Shannon packed her bags and moved to the Lone Star State for her first reporting gig at KTEN News in Denison, TX. From there, she happily returned back to PA and worked at Blue Ridge TV-13 in the Poconos, WBRE in Wilkes-Barre Scranton, and most recently she was the News Director and Lead Anchor at News 11 in Ephrata.
Some of Shannon’s career highlights include covering the Flood of 2011 in Luzerne County when Eyewitness News stayed on the air live for 63 continuous hours. She also spearheaded a community effort which raised thousands of dollars for a little boy battling cancer. While at News 11, Shannon started a campaign called “Handbags of Hope” where she collected and stuffed hundreds of purses. They were then delivered to women’s shelters in Lancaster County for Mother’s Day.
Beyond her career, Shannon’s biggest accomplishment is being a wife and mother. She and her husband Mike are proud parents of their identical twin boys and a sweet little girl.
In her downtime you can find Shannon running laps at the local track. Throughout both high school and college she held school records in the pole vault and was awarded an athletic scholarship at Millersville.
