I am a busy working redheaded mamma who’s never really grown up at heart!! Doing the show is probably the perfect job for me – since I love to “play” here with the guys every morning. Murphy and I couldn’t stop gazing into each other’s eyes when we first started, so we got married (seriously, he’s my best friend). We have 2 beautiful daughters who challenge and delight us. We also have 5 dogs (can you say pack?) that we are in love with and addicted to. I am passionate about saving homeless animals, binge watching tv shows and getting a great deal on clothing & shoes. I was raised a country girl, and she does still live inside of me.
I’m a “y’at”…born and raised in New Orleans. Murphy and I teamed up in 1992 and Jodi joined the fun 1997…the rest is history. Murphy, Sam & Jodi have become one of the most engaging and identifiable morning show. My part: I bring the funny, clean humor, sarcasm and a very cynical view of the world. I also try to lighten the mood when we tackle serious subjects…it’s my way of dealing with the world. I’m a single dad of 5 great kids, and my favorite ways to enjoy my free time are cooking, grilling, photography, watching football on Saturdays and Sundays, everything electronic, working in the yard and garden and of course my collection of Chucks (Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoes). Jodi says I have many layers like an onion…could be why I’ve been divorced three times.
Murphy is married to Jodi (his favorite redhead) and loves to spoil his two daughters Taylor and Phoebe. He’s known Sam for the better part of two decades, and married Jodi in 1999. Murphy’s been called Mr. Safety, Mr. Diplomacy – and occasionally Mr. Paradox because his passion rules his heart. Working with Jodi everyday is not a problem for Murphy – and his favorite time is still dinner with the girls after school.
Producer Emilie is the youngest of the morning show family (born in ’82). She started with the show in 2004 as an intern and now couldn’t imagine her mornings without Murphy, Sam and Jodi! Emilie loves chatting with Jodi, learning from Murphy, and joking around with Sam.
Producer Emilie keeps the website up-to-date, tries to keep the show moving in the morning and is the most organized person you’ll ever meet!
Emilie is married to her college sweetheart, Mike, and they had their first child, Jacob, in December 2012. When she’s not hanging with Mike and Jake, you can find Emilie with friends and family, training for a race, or watching some sort of sporting event.
