Murphy, Sam and Jodi have been together since 1997, they joined the Mix 94.1 team in 2001!
Sam is a comic genius (and writes his own bio). Just listen for a few minutes…he can’t help but to throw out a joke. He says it comes from watching too much Bob Hope and Three Stooges from his crib as a baby.
Time off finds Sam spending time with his sons Sammy (teen), Will (tween) and toddlers Jackson, Parker & Maddie (twins). His hobbies include cooking, gardening, reading and of course MUSIC…his iPod has over 3500 songs.
Sam was born and raised in New Orleans, LA. He did a stint in college radio and on an oldies station before teaming up with Murphy in 1992 and adding Jodi in 1997.
Murphy is ‘the diplomat’ in the show, but will stand by his convictions when it’s important. The real life relationship between Murphy and Jodi takes you through the typical (and not so typical) adventures of marriage with children. (He’s also teased for his quirkiness for being “Mr. Safety” about things). Murphy is a Type 1 diabetic who is involved with the American Diabetes Association, and gives encouragement to children and young adults who are learning their way through insulin dependency.
He enjoys working with Sam and Jodi and being a regular part of everyone’s morning routine through the radio. Murphy spends most of his spare time with Jodi and their two daughters Taylor and Phoebe eating out, visiting family and friends, and supporting various non-profit agencies.
Murphy is a Baton Rouge, LA native who’s been behind a microphone since 1984, when he got his start in high school radio. Murphy and Sam have been working as a team since 1992, and Jodi joined the team in 1997
“I feel like we’ve been friends forever,” that’s what most people who listen to MSJ have to say about Jodi. She’s the perfect balance of entertainment and compassion. Jodi keeps you up to date on the things daily that affect busy working families, career moms and dads, stay at home moms, and kids. Somewhere in the middle, she manages to “put up” with Sam’s craziness and her husband Murphy’s idiosyncrasies. Jodi lives the same lifestyle as any American woman – juggling career and home. When she’s not on the air, together she and Murphy are busy raising their two daughters Taylor and Phoebe.
Drew and Emilie
Producer Drew is the glue that holds together Murphy, Sam and Jodi. He does everything from arranging those great Hollywood interviews, to answering phones, to picking up coffee on the way into work in the morning.
Drew comes to us by way of Longview, TX. He was born in 1978 and picked up a college degree somewhere along the way. Drew (short for Andrew) was adopted when he was just days old and he was successful in his search for his birth mother and family.
He’s the proud parent of 2 nasty cats and just recently signed his life away on his first house. If you want weekly drama, tune in to see what Drew gets himself into next.
Producer Emilie is the youngest of the morning show family. She started with the show as an intern and now couldn’t imagine her mornings without Murphy, Sam and Jodi (and of course Drew!). Emilie updates the website regularly, books regular guests and helps Drew with booking the big time guests. She also keeps everyone on track and in line. Producer Emilie loves chatting with Jodi, learning from Murphy and joking around with Drew and Sam.
Emilie still lives at home with her loving parents and Maw-Maw. Besides working for Murphy, Sam and Jodi – Emilie enjoys playing board games, hanging out with friends and family and playing volleyball.
