About the show
Before getting their first dose of coffee in the morning, KNBR listeners get their first dose of sports from the duo of Brian Murphy and Paul McCaffrey every weekday from 6 am to 10 am. “Murph and Mac” have been entertaining sports fans in the Bay area since 2006. A former sportswriter for the San Francisco Chronicle, Murph, a North Bay native, covered every Bay Area sports team during a 15-year writing career and brings an almost encyclopedic memory of sports knowledge, trivia and Bay Area sports history to the show. He’s authored six books, including three labors of love on the 2010, 2012 and 2014 World Series champion Giants. Paulie Mac brings the passion of a lifelong San Francisco sports fan, combined with an energetic sense of humor that keeps the pace moving every morning. Paulie also colors the morning with the audio from his popular parody songs and ever-changing soundboard. He may also drop intense musical knowledge on the show, particularly as it relates to the Grateful Dead, but only on days that end in ‘y’.
