Steve Murphy, senior news editor and anchor of CTV News at 6, has been named narrator for the 13th annual JA P.E.I. Business Hall of Fame gala June 9 in Charlottetown.
His participation was announced by the board of governors of the Hall of Fame.
Murphy has anchored more than 5,000 live broadcasts, conducted hundreds of interviews with presidents, prime ministers and premiers, served 15 years as chair of the Christmas Daddies fundraising association and host of the telethon, and has also hosted the IWK telethon for over 10 years.
"It is indeed a pleasure to have Steve Murphy join us this year as the narrator for the induction ceremonies of this year's laureates; Dr. Kent Ellis, H. Frank Lewis and Donald J. McDougall," said David Hooley, chairman of the board of governors.
The JA P.E.I. Business Hall of Fame was established in 1998 by JA P.E.I. to provide a link between the province's economic heritage and the promise of a prosperous future by honouring key Island business people.
The awards gala raises funds to support JA's business and education programs that will reach some 4,500 students this year in schools across the province.
Tickets are on sale from members of the board of governors.

    Not a Dion Fan......I couldnt agree more. I would take it a little further and blame the CTV network as well. They allowed Mike Duffy to rebroadcast the clip on the Mike Duffy Live show the same night. Harper was so impressed he made Duffy a Senator. Some creditability, some Senator, some network.

    Could you not find someone from P.E.I. to narrate this as it is the JA P.E.I. Business Hall of Fame ?

    Well congrats JA . I will never support your organization again. I am not a Stephane Dion fan but what Steve Murphy did to him was pathetic.
    Murphy asked an unclear question and when Dion asked if he could start again Murphy said yes, only to show the clips of Dions misunderstanding to try and embarresse him.
    Steve Murphy is not the type of person you should associate with. He showed he doesn't care about people.
