Hosting Highway 18 is such an incredible experience, said Murphy, who owns a modeling talent agency in Portland. I am extremely excited to be a part of this series, and I cant wait to watch pressure situations that I put the teams through every week.
Murphys television credits include hosting a daily online trivia show on GolfNow.com, and appears as a modeling coach on the newest installment of MTVs original series, Made. A two-time Miss Oregon contestant (1996, 1999), Murphy coached 2002 Miss Oregon Katie Harman to Oregons lone Miss America crown.
Highway 18s official show Web site, www.GolfChannel.com/Highway18 also will feature a weekly video blog by Murphy detailing the behind-the-scenes and inside information on the teams and the various challenges. The micro-site is scheduled to launch July 1.
