Toucher & Rich: Joe Murray completely DERAILED a corporate-wide Zoom meeting
During yesterday’s Toucher & Rich radio program, Fred & Rich recount an incident during a recent mandatory web meeting involving the nighttime host and colleague, Joe Murray, who absolutely derailed the meeting because he was late.
During this corporate-mandated virtual meeting, Joe’s late arrival prompted an unexpected turn of events. The hosts recall Joe asking the presenter to recap everything discussed in the meeting up to that point, much to the amusement of everyone involved.
The hosts make fun of Joe’s request, suggesting that he seemed rather self-involved and oblivious to the inconvenience he was causing for the other participants. Joe’s question to start the presentation over for his benefit drew a mix of reactions from the meeting attendees, with some likely feeling quite exasperated.
The guys also shared some entertaining anecdotes about their colleagues’ engagement in the meeting, such as a coworker’s post on social media regarding a trip to the Caribbean. They tease the idea of potentially using this episode as material for a comedy skit or play.
Joe Murray was named the full-time nighttime host at 98.5 The Sports Hub back in June. Murray, a Hyde Park native and Connecticut School of Broadcasting graduate (like me), had served with the Sports Hub in a part-time and weekend role since 2013. He had been a frequent fill-in and third voice on the Toucher and Rich morning program and cohosted the OverUnder985 gambling podcast, among other contributions.
