Connecting Point says goodbye to a long-time member of the WGBY family. George Murphy, an iconic figure in local media, passed away recently. For decades, George could be seen and heard on televisions and radios throughout the Pioneer Valley, but to us, he will always be the host of our popular “Making It Here” series. For 9 seasons, George took us throughout Western Mass and beyond, introducing us to the amazing people, places, and things that make our community so very special.

Rest in peace, George Murphy. We will miss you.
