Congratulations to Seven Tasmania’s weather presenter Peter Murphy who this week marks 35 years of bringing the weather to viewers -possibly an Aussie record?
Murphy presented his first weather in 1984 for TNT-9 Southern Cross with Tim Lester (now at Seven in Canberra and often currently seen in the same bulletin).
Back then temperatures were placed onto a magnetic map.
“There was only a magnet on one end and the other end, and every time we would put it up on the board it would slide down while we were doing the weather,” he tells the Examiner.
Murphy traditionally wraps his reports with a
dad joke, and last night the bulletin featured this special tribute.
