When I used to live in St. Louis there was a very good television weatherman named Dave Murray.
My brother alerted me that Murray is retiring soon after a seriously long career.
I always enjoyed his pleasant way, information first, good knowledge and depth.
But my favorite memory was one time when the station brought in a “pretty boy”,
Patrick Emory, as anchorman.
His ego could almost be visible on the screen, the preening was that bad at times.
One day he was doing a story that must have involved him actually leaving the studio and almost running into a serious situation somewhere.
Emory was on set with Murray and said “I could see my life flash before my eyes.”
With no more than a beat, Murray replied “Didn’t see much did you?”
The set exploded in laughter.
And to his credit, Emory wet a finger and raised it into the air to post it as “one for Murray”.
Thanks for the memories Dave.
