Beginning Oct. 2, we'll be seeing more of Keri Murphy - and that is definitely a good thing. On Friday, Keri starts a new gig working with That Morning Show on E!, airing daily from 6-9 a.m. Keri will be appearing during the "Chase it" segments, helping consumers save money.
"I am excited to get started (with E!)," Keri said, but added, "My heart will always be with the golf world though ... it is where it all started for me."
A few years back, Keri began hosting an online trivia show for a tee-time reservation service. Her video clips - and especially her blooper reels - became very popular on golf blogs and on YouTube.
And the Golf Channel took notice, too, later selecting Keri to host its Highway 18 series.
While Keri is now branching out into entertainment television, she plans to stay involved in golf. One way is in her role as an "official wearer" of Fore! jewelry ("made for golf lovers"). In the smaller photo here, Keri is wearing one of Fore!'s necklaces.
She also enjoys making appearances at golf tournaments, whether as a speaker, host or presenter. "I would love to do more of that," she told me. Tournament organizers interested in booking Keri should check her Web site, kerimurphy.com, for contact info.
One last note: I can tell you that Keri has another golf project that she'll begin work on in October, and it's something that Golf Babes readers will be interested in. But that's all I can tell you right now. We'll provide more details as soon as Keri gives us the OK to reveal them.
So Keri, congratulations on your new gig with E!, and thanks for staying in the golf world, too.
