He began his career with commercial and BBC regional radio in Cleveland before joining Five Live seven years ago.
As well as the France 98 World Cup, Murray also commentated at Euro 2000.
In that tournament, he covered one of the most exciting of all internationals when Spain scored twice in stoppage time to beat Yugoslavia 4-3.
But at the other extreme, Murray also endured an 18-month spell "when every game that was abandoned I was commentating on!"
He is also a member of Five Live's golf commentary team at The Open and Ryder Cup.
