THE SCOTT MURRAY SHOW
THE SCOTT MURRAY SHOW
Each week, Scott is joined by people and organizations we’ve all come to know, from well-known celebrities to famous personalities, representatives of local non-profits to executive partners from corporate America, all gathered around the “Relationship Roundtable”. It’s all about making a difference in our world, just as Scott reminds his listeners at the conclusion of the program each week…. “Live your life as a go-getter… Share your life as a go-giver.”
For over three decades, Scott Murray came into our homes nightly as the Emmy Award-winning, sports anchor/broadcast journalist on NBC5 here in north Texas. From sports competition to sportsmanship, the amateurs to the pros, he shared it with us all, having been honored as Sportscaster of the Year 17 times by various news organizations. He has been recognized as a Living Legend of Journalism by the Press Club of Dallas and is a recipient of the prestigious Silver Circle Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
Although retired from television news, Scott returned to NBC5 to host the weekly public affairs/philanthropic program, Talk Street. He also continues to be a sought-after keynote speaker and a published author of two books (Whatever It Takes and Bring Out The BEST).

And, now, he’s back on both radio and television as well, hosting the TV program, Conversations with Scott Murray and host of two radio shows on 570 KLIF News and Information, one of which is simply entitled, The Scott Murray Show. This one hour program, which airs every Sunday night at 5:00pm, gives Scott and his co-hosts, all 3 of whom are practicing attorneys, a chance to discuss relationships in our world, be it professional, personal or philanthropic on the Relationship Roundtable. And, the guests and topics are widespread, as we hear from folks from the worlds of sports, music, media, medicine, education, entertainment, charitable/non-profits, politics, and, so much more. Scott also remains busy in the corporate/media world as the Chairman/CEO of the Emmy Award-winning video/television production and A/V event company, Murray Media, which he founded with his son, Doug.
