He was also a producer on The Fat and Backberner and previously a vision mixer on Countdown Revolution, The D Generation, The Gillies Report, Australia You’re Standing In It, The Fast Lane and Countdown.
Murray recently came out of retirement to bring his experience to community TV show 31 Questions.
Host and Executive Producer David M. Green said, “Softly-spoken with a gentle soul and fine sense of humour, he was a man who loved the medium as much as he loved his motorbikes. He shared his wealth of knowledge and experience with a new generation of television-makers. It was a rare opportunity and an honour to work with a legend. We will always cherish the brief time we had with Joe, and he will be sorely missed among the cast and crew.”
